I'm a little confused, but do you leave the factory DVs out? You should do another sound clip but move the camera so the BOV sound is more prevalent

Please see the original pictures. The factory DV's are completely removed. Also, I no longer have the BOV or the car. Im sure if you youtube search for the TIAL on 355 youll find plenty of clips.

just got done installing my AA bov and wanted to add one thing:

the vacuum line might be different depending on the year of the car (im not too sure), in my case (2009 e92 335i) the vacuum line going to the factory dv is only one that splits in two forming a "y" shaped fitting with one line that goes to the engine and the other two go to each of the dv. when you install the bov you are left with only one vacuum line (provided with the bov kit) that runs directly from the engine to the bov. in this DIY is different because the vacuum line runs from the engine to a "t" shaped fitting which splits one line to somewhere not pictured then to a "Y" shapped fitting then to the factory dv from there. this can be confusing for some as it was for me. thats all, great diy op.

Where exactly does the o-ring go? Is it between the BOV and clamp flange or the clamp flange and the pipe?

Yes, you're referring to the little brown rubber ring right? It goes in between the bov and the flange, keeps an air tight seal!

Just installed my vrsf and have little to no boost. I'm really confused on where the line from the bov goes to (07 335 e92) I also didn't get another hose in my package..

This is how mine is, but I'm confused on what to do with the factory dv because the line is attached to the motor so I can't remove it..

Sorry, I should have specified that I sent the other vacuum line to the boost guage I had inside the car. This is why I installed the "T" fitting.

Check to make sure o ring is in the pipe on the throttle body side.
Make sure both sides of the IC to pipe side are good and tight.

VRSF doesn't include vacuum hose. You'll need 1/4" vacuum tube.

Most people put a 1/8" to 1/4" reducer(enlarger?) from the manifold line.
This is what I did, since I didn't want to risk breaking the nipple on the plastic manifold.

Great DIY! Thank you.

A question - when you're pulling the intake air sensor, is it an issue if you just reconnect the whole thing on the new charge pipe in the engine bay, rather than outside? My clip was stuck something horrible so I just screwed it all off, taped it to a convenient hose and plugged it back in. I'm waiting on an Allen wrench to come over so I have time to ask if this is an issue.

I *think* it only makes it more of a pain in the ass to screw in, right?

Also, screw the c-clip to the BOV. 30 minutes to get that thing compressed and in, even with the $14 tool.

For those with the VRSF kit like me, and who are wondering what to do about the piece of tubing you need - I just chopped off a hunk from the factory DV and used that from the BOV to vacuum regulator to the original vacuum tubing, after I pulled off the factory Y connector. Kind of ruins your factory DVs but if you're ok with that, might as well use the tubing.

You're welcome! It's perfectly fine to install it when its in the engine bay. It's just that much more difficult trying to get to those little torx screws.
