I can’t be sure but your problem could be that the silver bracket is under the block off plate not allowing it to seat properly. I would imagine it should be above the block off plate Like how the stock valve was. Here’s a picture of the stock valve.Lol leaking boost...assuming it’s coming out of the ATP blockoff plate. I guess I was supposed to remove the gasket and I didn’t.
So your leaking from that terrible BPV blockoff? Lol
Wait what lol? Do you have pictures or instructions or anything! That would be awesomeSo your leaking from that terrible BPV blockoff? Lol
You can cap that line off from the solenoid on top of the valve cover. Its easier.
A boost leak test would be a great call as well.
I tied and capped the line on the end near the bpv and tightened the plate and it stopped leaking. Cars going in on Tuesday to get the turbo installed anyways so it’s not a problem anymoreI dont. Maybe I'll snag some of mine tomorrow for you. Its super easy, but you need to cap it securely or its a boost leak, as most things are, lmao
Yeah, with the flange you bought, i didnt think an OEM style DP would fit.So I was supposed to get the car back yesterday. They called and said that my downpipe isn't fitting? I haven't had a full chance to see what he means, but I decided that he would just custom fab a new downpipe for me...So another week without my car but at least it will be cool when it gets out
Why the hell did you sell your v3 accessport, why didnt you just send it to cobb and have them repart number it for 150 bucks, sorry bud but that was goofy as ****.Hey! I'll preface by saying that I came from a MK6 GTI, which was also FBO with some extra little things here and there. Car was a lot of fun. Too much fun..? This was the last of my Volkswagen:

TL;DR at the bottom of this post
After a bit of time haggling with insurance about payouts and getting my "go fast" parts out of my car - which they never let me, I scooped up my 2013 TS ST3 from auction:

In love with this color, and eager to make the car go faster, I quickly sold my AP3 from my Volkswagen and picked up an AP2 for the Focus thinking I could spare a couple bucks. That was dumb. I ended up selling the AP probably 2 months later due to Cobb cutting support and me wanting to custom tune the car. I ended up getting an AP3 from a forum member for $350.

Obligatory gas picture. In love with the rear-end of this car...The MK6 always looked so skinny to me, so this was a nice view.

Move out day! The Focus fit all my stuff...which is quite a bit. If you look close enough you can see the Euro plate I was running on my GTI lol.

Anyways, onto the goodies!! When I bought car, it already had a Steeda Sound Symposer delete, a Steeda Cold Air Intake (I thought...), and a BOV.
I have never been super mechanically inclined, but I thought this would be a perfect chance to learn some stuff. It didn't take me long to start modding. After reading some decent reviews, I picked up the 3.5' Depo "Son of a Beast" Intercooler.
Me getting started:

All finished up!

Didn't put the bumper back on just in case I messed something up:

I was happy with the IC and how it performed in the Denver summer heat, so I kept it and put the bumper back on that night.
Windows tinted to 15% all the way around:

Next thing that was installed was a Catless Megan Racing Downpipe. It was around $150. I thought to myself, why not? Worst is it doesn't fit. I either return it or I'm out $150. Weirdly enough, it fit pretty well!
The forum only lets me attach 10 images per post...I guess ill attach some more to the thread. Heres a full list of mods for people who are tired of my stories and pictures, and a price breakdown. Keep in mind I did all the work myself as well, so I paid 0 on installs
The total for all my go fast parts, and tuning, is $1,550, which is well below any stage 3 "kit" I've seen. I am very happy with the car; its quick - and I haven't encountered any problems that I didn't cause myself. I've been driving on this setup for almost 15k miles now and its been a blast! If you can get over the fact of not having name brand parts, and you are willing to do the work yourself, I would 100% recommend you take a route such as this!
