Stock top mount intercooler?

You can either weld a flange to the the intercooler itself, like the picture above, or you can get a Samco T hose that replaces the stock piece between the intercooler and turbo.

Aside from that you need a vacuum source, there's usually an plugged nipple on the back of the intake manifold you can use, or just splice a T fitting in one of the lines.

Here's a pic of an SSQV installed using the Samco T hose, credit goes to Meurz on AllTrac.net.

His website is very well made and has several great tutorials, including a BOV install, check it out.

Nice post dudeman. I shied away from the T-Pipe because there are few BOV's that will fit like the RFL and old SSQV's. The intercooler let's you decide how big you want to go
