Technically you can using an adapter. It's not listed on our site yet but I can throw them up or you can just PM me for details. The only problem is you need to run 2 BOV. Or somehow plug off one of the diverter valves.

^ Yep.

It's on our site now.

Somehow you just need to plug off one DV hole otherwise you will need 2 adapters and 2 bov. Also you need the plug kit to block off the return lines on the intake.

By the time you buy 2 BOV you are better off just getting a dedicated charge pipe and 1 bov. So the key to the equation is being able to plug off 1 DV hole.

There of course is still the inherent risk of leaking depending on how you plug off the hole and it may not be the most aesthetically pleasing and last but not least there is always the risk of a cracked charge pipe for the people boosting higher then stock. (Rare but it happens).

Just curious why can't you run one BOV and one stock DV. I mean if you can run 2 BOV's then the former should be possible right?

You can run just 1. But you need to find a way to plug the other open hole from where your stock DV was.

See above

In all seriousness, why would you run the SSQV through what effectively is a restrictor? Are you trying to induce compressor surge? Do it right and get a purpose made CP, it's cheaper than the BOV. The HKS is already not as good flowing as a Tial , Synapse, etc. A lot of supras have to run 2 SSQVs instead of one Tial.
