BOV Question

So I have had my HKS BOV for about 6 months now and I noticed that a screw is rubbing up against it slightly. Its causing a big dent in the metal in the bov. any ideas on how to prevent any further damage? I didn't want to unscrew it because it's holding something in place and I can't move the charge pipe because its metal. Any ideas would be great. Thank you!

Don't know about the bolt but, I'd change that o ring on the power steering fluid tank.

Can you rotate the BOV counterclockwise I make some room?

Cut the screw shorter?

That's the bracket that clamps onto the power steering reservoir, maybe you can flip it over so the extra thread points the other way.

Buy Dinan power steering reservoir bracket and relocate it. Costs $30 from Dinan. It is a metal bracket to move the PSR so the Dinan air intake pipe can reach the front air ducts. If you want to see a pic of what I'm talking about, check out my build thread. Problem solved !!!
