Is there any reason behind you taking off the AA BOV? I'm just curious. Take a look at the AA instructions and work backwards if you forgot.

guys I looked at the AA instructions and it does not say where I can find that tube

Anyone know where it can be found or where it comes from?

I think I'm loosing boost because of this tube not being connected to the y pipe

bud!!

the end of that hose thats attached to your BOV is the end.... the other end goes directly around the back of your engine and into your intake manifold u cant get to it theres no reason too...

if u were to take off that hose at the end of your bov ud have to put the Y valve on to connect it to your stock valves...

If u are experienceing boost lost u need to zip tie that hose to your bov i can almost guarantee thats where the problem is!!

yea if you do not have the hose on tight enough it can leak under boost.... zip tires are always the best way to go like ADHD said.

Here's the problem....the hose that attatched to the front of the BOV I cannot find it!....you say its located around the back of the engine.....any idea on where the hell I can find it?

If I am understanding you correctly you are telling me to do this
Find the hose that attatched to the front of the BOV and connect it back to the Y pipe where the vaccum lines are?

I am putting my stocks setup back.
appreciate it

going with what your saying and those installation instructions, you trying to say the vacumm line that connects to the bov fell off. well the other end of that hose goes next to the throttle body and into the intake manifold according to the installation instructions so you might want to try and take a peek around the throttle body... hope that helps

You have a lot of learning to do under the hood, but i'll try to help here. If the vac line goes to your throttle body then you need to look where your intake (big black plastic box with your air filter inside) connects too. A pic of the throttle body with the original vac line is shown in the AA instructions next to pic 7 where it says "disconnect the vacuum line on the side of the throttle body housing...." That is the vac line that should be connected to your BOV.

if the line is gone and you really can not find it.... just go to autozone and buy a 1/4 vacum hose and just replace it...

Wow u seem to actually notice a difference between the stock setup vs the aftermarket setup. This shows that BOVs suck . Mike.

Haha... its hard for a BOV to work when it doesn't have a vac line running into it.
