Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't a BOV on a CIS car a bad thing?? You are venting metered air.... In an EFi car, it is not bad as you have the O2 sensor, and the MAP sensor to keep the A/R ratios in check. I would think venting the air after the metering plate would cause a pig rich condition....... Or are we talking such little air that it makes no difference?

A CIS car has a recirculating valve as stock equipment..... which does the same job as a BOV, but it reintroduces the metered air back into the flow instead of venting to atmosphere.....
