    Looks like a good amount of tension on those wires coming off the BOV....that plus the plug being zip tied in place might be putting some strain on the wiring since the intercooler pipes move when you travel over bumps and with normal engine movement....

    Did anyone with a Mechanical TS Bov changed to the new electronic one ?
    If yes I would love to know if there was any difference. Just changed my IC and Iam in the market for a new Bov but I am a bit confused whether o go mechanical or electronic.

    Was going to start this project yesterday but with my ADD front bumper, I'd have to basically remove it to drop the intercooler.. I'm getting my bumper swapped out today so I'm just going to have the shop do it.

    The new electronic one is plug and play. The mechanical ones are not plug and play and can be quite an involved install

    Yes - I think you're right. Install error rather than anything else and highly likely to be a wiring issue. I would be surprised if I had damaged the valve or anything else on the device itself. Once I get replacement Skid Plate clips I shall have a look again and reinstall.

    Yeah - SVC's new bolt on is going on in place. A buddy is getting my ADD. SVC has my truck now to do bumper, King 3.0, UCA, tie rods. I'll eventually do the SVC rear so it just happened to work out.

    I think I will be - they put on the textured finish like the ADD too. The new billet UCA's will also be one of the first sets installed - just pure luck and timing really. Titan7 started the caps process btw.
