The vacuum port on the BOV is actually opposite to the recirc port which is different from the pictures shown here and on the manual. See pic 1.
You just have to undo the 4 corner bolts on the BOV with a 3mm hex in a cross pattern. Make sure to hold down the top part while unscrewing as there is a spring underneath.
I ended up snapping the vacuum port on the stock valve while trying to get it off. See pics 2-4.
Eventually pulled the snapped port out of the the vacuum tube with a small flathead.
The recirc hose was impossible to get off the stock valve.
I ended up using a heatgun set to 200C and heated the hose up for ~2mins.
This made it much easier to pull off. See pic 6.
Big thanks to the support team for helping me along the way :)
Installed by Cherry Tuning along with Air Intake Kit and i20N is enhanced with faster response & great sound added. Great service by Cherry Tuning and look forward for more to add.
Installed this today, along with the BOV solenoid and can definitely feel the extra responsiveness. Took it out on some country roads for a bit of fun, and the added whoosh at higher rpm's put a smile on my face (even on the full recirc model I have) - it's quite subtle, unlike a full atmospheric vent, if that's what you're after - this will be great! Absolutely solidly built too, especially compared to the stock valve.
Direct bolt on replacement. Fitted with the BOV solenoid and the EBC solenoid. Car feels much more lively and responsive. Would recommend this part if venting to atmosphere isn’t your thing.
sounds good like the whoosh sound from the intake car definitely feels stronger with more throttle response
