    Without the BOV hooked up it wont open under a shift condition. The only time it will open under a load condition is if the boost pressure overpowers the spring pressure..

    What spring setup do you have in the BOV?

    Gotta really tighten the couplers and make sure that the t-bolt is on the opposite side of the rolled end.. If you tighten it all cock eyed on the rolled part, you are creating a leak.

    Like I said, it would be very rare for the intercooler or pipes to have a missed weld which would be the only other possibility of a leak and you should be able to visually see a missed weld if you can hear it like that.

    If you can hear the leak, the odds of it being at a coupler or at the BOV are very very good.

    Again, the car should pull a bit better than without the FMIC, if it does that you are most likely golden (nvyseal obviously has a leak) If you are just going based off the intake sound slightly changing than it is probably in your head.

    Best ways to diagnose a true leak that I use is:

    -a noticeable difference in the intake and 'leak' sounds.
    -slow spool
    -torque app or similar peak boost under 15lbs in 3rd gear run

    on the t-bolt clamps, you should have an inch or more thread sticking out the end of the clamp when tightened. More often than not people think it is tight when it is more or less snug. Under boost, snug is not close to sufficient.
    Wait, I haven't even installed mine yet

    Ha-ha, Socks work so hard and so much, that he is actually ahead of us on the time line. He sometimes has to stop to get back to the present, which is really his past and our future. Confused now?

    Most leaks will arrise at the BOV because the signal lines aren't hooked up, there is a leak between the gasket and the flanges, top and bottom of the BOV are not sealed.

    As two of the instances regarding slow spool and boost leaks so far have ended up being user error, please don't jump the gun to act like the kit is faulty.. I understand the frustration but these systems are just piping and hose with clamps for the most part. Sealing is important for obvious reasons.

    Also, nvyseal, you definitely have a leak judging by that sound, so first thing you need to do is locate it before anything else can be done.

    I'm using the Large spring setup on my BOV and the top screw is tightened all the way in. I can try removing the BOV, opening it and closing it again just to make sure it's all tight.
    How can I tell if a gasket is bad?
    Is there a way to just close the BOV or make it not open just to see if that's the issue?

    For the Torque app, what kind of adapter should I buy? Never messed around with this.

    Other than that I'm running out of ideas, and at this point I guess I could always remove a lot of the pipes and re-tighten them again to ensure a proper seal (don't really want to do this again -_-).

    you want the preload screw all the way out, not all the way tightened.. You want the nut tightened though to seal the top o-ring..

    Without the vacuum lines connected to the BOV, the BOV is not going to open unless the boost is greater than the spring pressure. If you only have the large spring installed, it will probably start opening around 8lbs or so without the vacuum lines connected.

    If you put both springs in the BOV and disconnect the vacuum lines, the BOV should never open.

    The gasket wont be bad unless it was torn from the getgo. However, if you don't tighten the two bolts holding the BOV to the flange (with gasket in between) that will for SURE leak.

    For the torque app, you just need an android phone and a bluetooth OBDII connector on ebay. If you have an iphone, I think there are similar apps.

    Obviously taking it apart and making sure it is all tight is not optimal which is why I stress so hard to make sure everything is tight before putting the car back together!

    just to show something is not tightened, I will loosen a clamp after work and record a video. I will then loosen the BOV a bit from the flange to produce the leaking sound.

    one thing that works really well to help seal everything, is spray hairspray on the ends of the pipes where the coupling will be going. when it dries it will act as a sort of glue and seal very well.

    Thanks TS. Would you be able to take a picture of how the the preload screw and nut are supposed to be set up. I might be getting confused (I hope I am and it's a simple thing).

    I unfortunately won't be able to play around with it until next Thursday, I'll be in LA for E3
