Blanking plug for T7 BPV

Is the blanking plug from T5 bpv to bov the same as T7?

This weekend i unhooked the bpv pipe and plugged the pipe with a towel so it made a BOV, sounded fucking awesome.

Is this not recommended to do?

No. T7 takes account for ALL air entering the system and if there is some missing it can run rich and throw a CEL.

lol a towel?!?! you have some balls stuffing a towel into your intake. I suppose it was probably large enough to not get sucked in but STILL!!!

You cannot run a BOV unless you want your car to run like shit and be stuck on low boost.

Guys take it easy, a lot of people don't know this!

A lot of people don't know about the T7 BOV non-compatibility, that's true. But Paul has been around TSL for quite a while. The car is not new to him, and the question has surly been asked since he's been here.

Also, a fucking towel in the intake?!?

This reminds me of the fool on some other forum that got his 100 pages of fail for sucking a plastic bag into his motor after using it to try to plug a hole in the intake.

lol..

It was only in the garage. I knew it would throw a CEL. It wouldnt be a permanent "mod" anyways.

Was it stupid? Yes.
Did I know it would go into LHM? No.

EDIT:
Another member on here said it would just throw a CEL, no limp home mode.

to answer the original question, yes the blanking plug should fit. I thought it was the same tube for both correct?

:flame suit on:

Has anyone seen one of these



Ive been running it like this for a month for the hell of it w/ no CEL

Its not a true BOV nor DV -> I have a plug that I can use to make it DV only or BOV only. I plan on going 100% DV if I ever get a CEL or any poor driving characteristics.


Really, the only reason I am posting this is to cause a riot since we all know YOU CAN NOT RUN A BOV ON T7

Oh yea and LOL at dude who stuck a towel in his BPV pipe!!!

Yes I tested those a while ago. Found no benefit and could not hear a a difference with the open air intake. Decided not to sell them. I have some here if anybody wants them.

I agree with you there, i hear no difference between this BOV/DV hybrid and a normal DV

Nick when doing your tests how did the a/f ratios look? Did it make the car run pig rich like running only a BOV would or was there only minimal change or what?

For the record, I never put a towel in the bpv pipe. The pipe was just covered, again nothing was shoved in it.
