I'm installing a turbosmart 50/50 Kompact Shortie BOV

(Turbosmart TS-0203-1064 Focus RS Blow Off Valve Kompact Dual Port 16)

and I'm just curious as to how "soft" or "hard" I should make it with a stock setup. Thanks.

They told me to keep it at the setting it's set at from the factory. I fiddled with mine though so I had to get it sorted out. I installed it, and took it out for a drive and used my Cobb AP to see what my peak boost was. I'm Cobb Stage 1, so my peak boost may be different than yours depending if you have a aftermarket tune or not. But my peak boost before the install was around 22 psi, after install I was getting 17-19. I opened the BOV up until I was getting peak boost numbers similar to what they were before.

I just revved and turned it until it went back to idle normally. After I get an accessport I'll set it exactly where I want it but for now its working fine. thanks

That adjustment is more directed at people who live at higher altitudes, so you have to adjust for the change in barometric pressure. The stock setting should be fine for most people unless you live up in the mountains.
