Replaced my Turbosmart with a Boomba BOV today and had a quick question to those who have installed one.

On the 2 longer bolts, the spacers between the valve & bracket had some slop still after I snugged up all 3 fasteners. Car runs fine & holds boost but it was bugging me a little. Anyone else notice this?

Thanks. I’m gonna have to tear into it again and see what I could have done wrong. I do know for sure it’s seated flush and that I didn’t dare go any tighter on those nuts

Everything should be totally snug once you are done tightening the screws. Make sure the threads on your vehicle are clean and not crossthreaded. Also make sure that spacers are in the right locations.
I’m defiantly gonna have to get back out there and check it out. Unfortunately all hells breaking loose with an ice storm today.

The spacers are in the right locations (top hole & bottom left) and the bolts went in easy enough that I don’t think they are cross threaded.
