Yeah, I read about your BOV setup in some other posts but I'm not sure I understand what you did and how it works.

I have a standard Forge unit, did you just change the orientation of the unit, you must have done something more I think?

Somone at another forum recommended this unit:

At first I thought this was for kids who whant their car to go "woosh", but the unit is supposed to be installed reversed and there is a blanking plug so all air is re-circulated. Would the reversed installation indicate that this unit would be able to do what you accomplished?
