I think I want to try this on the Vig, because I miss the sound of the bypass valve. If I understand this correctly, this remedies that and fixes the hanging revs thing(?) So, BPV line goes directly to the upper fitting on the manifold (bottom one goes to FPR), right? Can T off that same line for the gauge. Plug the TB vac fitting. All hoses on the solenoid are cut off but it stays plugged in. Do I have all this correct?

Make sure that if you do this mod, you use a piece of silicone hose with a bolt or metal plug in the end of it and zip tie it as TIGHT as possible to the nipple. I popped off 3 tight fitting caps that I put on it and went to the hose/bolt/zip tie method and have been perfectly fine since. Food for thought. Also, anyone who has done this mod and doesn't use the method above, keep an eye on the cap.

Does anyone get an annoying noise at low vacuum/just before boost with this mod? If I hold the pedal steady, it becomes ongoing. This might be my BPV honking but I'm not sure since I've never heard that happen before.

Yep, this mod defeats the system that prevents that noise from happening. The solution? Keep the needle on the boost side!

Geez, why can't it just sound like a T5 setup?

thats what i was gonna say. get a forge and your good to go. the g/f's 9-5 was doing REALLY bad with the stock one when we did this mod and now with the Forge one we have its quite. i highly suggest getting a Forge or Hyperboost. what we found was a replica Forge on ebay that cost 40 bucks with shipping and had the 3 different tension springs. works perfect and eliminates any noise.

Cap off the line coming off the TB.

Connect the line from the bypass valve to the manifold, get rid of the line that goes from the manifold to the solenoid.

first pic: yes leave this line.
2nd pic: pull line and cap TB
3rd to last pic. pull all three lines off of solenoid(you can cap the barbs or just leave them as is. just dont unplug the electrical connector) thats mounted on firewall. leave the line coming out of bottom of tee in place. route a line from the top port of the manifold piece through the tee to the bpv and your done!

Go to nick's blog at trolltuner on the bypass valve mod for an easy picture description if you need a visual.

I did....
But i get more confused...
The lines arenīt as described....
The plastic "T" isnīt in either site posted....
In nickīs page my 1st pic shouldnīt exist... because the vac line ( that is to be caped ) is going from there to the solenoid valve ( as is ) BUT in nickīs page there is an return from the solenoid valve to the vac line below the water lines in the TB ( where my blue vac line is conected ) ... do you understand it??

What you have outlined in Yellow in that pic is the Vacuum Control valve for the Heater control valve. No diffrent than a US car, You are just looking at the wrong valve. Just follow the hose from the turbo bypass valve to the correct control valve on top.
