I recently install HID for my low beams with relay and also the Forge BOV..

After installing it I got a check engine light on and sometimes when I hit the brakes or slow down my map light turns on or flickers.. I'm not sure is it because of the Forge BOV when I install it I left the small hose that suppose to be connect to the nipple disconnected because I could fit it in...

BTW I have stage 3 LED map light.. but I didn't have a issue with the map light before and it was install an week ago...

Is there anyway to reset the ECU? hopefully that will fix the check engine light issue..

some guys are using needle nose pliers, closing them, putting them inside the tube , expanding the tube , then putting it on the BOV

i dremeled off the lip on the BOV and then put on the tube

I did the Plier thing, then jammed a screw driver in. The trick is, when you pull it off the screw driver, to not elongate the tube again.
You could also lube it up a little...

Dremeling is probably the easiest option though, if you're so inclined.

You could also add a little heat to stretch it a tad.

You need to add that hose to the nipple immediately... I can't say this any nicer but that's where your having your issues.

Use OBDII computer to reset the ECU. A cheap OBDII bluetooth adapter can be had for less than $20 on ebay. If you have an Android phone, the software can be downloaded for free.

Question about the stock BOV flange.. *I'm pretty much a noob at this... currently I just left the hose connect to the stock flange > stock tube > the stock airbox.. am I suppose to cap off the outlet from the stock flange and the stock tube outlet?

the only thing you need to cap is on the intake.. the hose doesnt do anything as the forge blocks off the entire bypass plate..

as i said on *****.. you NEED to connect that hose.. the way I did it was just cut about 1/2" of the braiding off the hose and it went over the nipple a lot easier.. that or the plier trick would be best.. I would not want to bother with a dremel. Once the lip is gone, there is more of a chance of the hose coming off..

I just connected the hose to the nipple and everything seems fine but the check engine light is still on... is there a way to reset or clear the error without OBDII?

you can disconnect the battery for like 15 minutes.. or you can wait a few days and it will probably clear itself since you wont have the issue anymore.

LED problem solve... I don't know what was the reason but all I did was remove all the fuse and then re-plug them back in... I tried disconnect the battery for 15min but still had the check engine light.. so I just went to Autozone to have them run their OBDII computer and it was the BPV error which I fixed.. so they just clear it...
