Just FYI but those plastic bosch BV's aren't all that great. With greater than 14psi they tend to leak pretty badly. Also, over time, due to the relatively light spring rate inside of them they can start to leak which will cause slower boost response. IMO, it's not even worth messing with them when you can just buy a billet BV or aftermarket BV/BOV and have a better unit.
Yeh I know, it was just an example. The one I have is a billet aluminium unit which looks similar. I just wanted to confirm that the side pipe is the inlet

Here's the one I'll use pre and post i/cooler:



I plan to use two because I run max of about 1.3bar, so I want quickest possible venting as I can
