I got a 1st gen DSm Bypass the other day (the green one) it's a little bigger than the stock bypass and won't fit in place of the stock bypass all that well...the DSM bypass comes with a pipe that is rather restrictive, the person that I got it from (SD6) didnt grab the piping due to the restriction anyways...it's all good. Now my question, where should I have this thing welded into? Should I have it placed 4-6 inches from the throttle body boot and then plumb it into the stock location? I'll be using stock pipes for now, I had my Greddy Bov in the same location (charge pipe) and seemed to have little or no problems with the location:shrug: give me some suggestions on where it should go:confused:

edit: also....does anyone have a spare charge pipe (from intercooler to throttle body) that they'd be willing to sell?

I have the pipe. You can have it for the shipping cost.

I know you will be using stock pipes which would make this difficult, but if you're the type that thinks the factory does everything right, then shouldn't you put it in that same location as the stock bypass? I'm not dissin you, I agree the factory does a lot of research to do everything how it should be.

I used the pipe that came with my DSM bypass, and it fit, does seem a little restrictive, but i don't think it's a noticable difference.


*Also, on my cousins turbo kit that he got from a reputable company, his BOV is mounted on the pipe that comes from his turbo. Why does everyone say it's better to be right before your throttle body?

I used the pipe that came with the bypass. I dont think its any more restrictive than the stock pipe? I do highly recommend that you vent it back though. My idle is fine with this valve but when I let off the gas it tries to stall. I don't have a place to vent it back right now or I would, check out the pic...

it's a very tight squeeze in front of the thermostat though, that's the problem that I was wondering, it seemed like it was TOO tight to do but I wasnt sure, now that I've seen your picture, I might try the same location, just a matter of placement I guess:shrug: you should try to ask to go behind the counter at Kragen or Autozone, thats what I do when I need a hose that I have to eyeball in order to make work, I did the same with my greddy bov
