I am looking for some where to vent my BOV. I see a lot of people venting it into a vacum port on the intake I was told to put it a 60 degree bend right before the turbo . Does it make a difference ? 

Thanks

Dan

I vented mine to the turbo inlet with some radiator hoses and an epoxied fitting on the turbo inlet

That's a good idea

Did it quite the swoosh down to almost nothing?

Thanks... it quieted it down and I believe just made the whole system work better...   the air re-entering after the maf (running z31 electronics) has already been metered as opposed to metered air being vented and in turn running rich during shifts.

Upgraded my crappy intercooler to a huge one. A bit too large, it took some pie-cuts and lots of finagling.

 

Old one:

New one:

I'm happy with the fitment. Still needs some real mounts on it to hold it in place, but the piping does not rub on anything anymore, and the fitment relative to the radiator is much better.

It is not recommended to confirm proper installation by driving into walls or other barriers as this could cause personal injury or damage to the vehicle.

Sometimes in life rolling with the punches is the only way to get through it. The same goes for us lovers of old cars. We take what comes at us and try to make the best out of it.

I think somebody mentioned an air/water setup, earlier?

PWR 5x6" core, will be using a Honda CR80 radiator as the front heat exchanger, and an RB25 recirc valve.

Probably the shortest, intercooled piping setup on one of these engines.

We're almost done with the fabrication, just need to plumb the recirc outlet, and paint the pipes before doing the coolant plumbing.

EDIT: Done fabrication and paint.
