Thanks Chris! Do you have a picture of the airbox modification for your longneck? TIA

I cordially disagree with Brian statement that there's "no noticeable performance improvements...when replacing my properly functioning 930 BOV with the 965 BOV". Having converted 930s from a Garrettson/Andial bolt-on (shortneck) to a longneck and driven it back-to-back, there's a difference in driveability. It is especially noticeable immediately off idle, like when pulling away from a stop, and when shifting gears at high revs & full boost.
I doubt that anyone has used the exact same intercooler on the exact same engine with the only difference being the BOV. I have. My intercooler has provisions for both types of BOV. When I changed over to the 965 BOV I was surprized to see no difference. My 930 BOV had been recently rebuilt and was in perfect operating condition, something that is very unusual from what I have seen in client's cars.
I have no biase towards the 930 BOV, rather I think it is a huge piece of crap that should be tossed when the opportunity arrises, if for no other reason than to clean up the engine bay.

In summary, if you're going big go TurboKraft, if you want a plug-in that fits in the OEM spot with no changes whatsoever I have a solution.
