      Wait u did it to make it fit inside the stock tip or what. Cause yes that will work but idealey if u do something like that u want to grab a rubber hose that fits snug in the existing and hugs snug on the bov because being rubber when u tighten the hose clamp it will expand when the pressure is aplied and fill the areas. Where as plastic will put be a solid and rubber wont wrap on it as well or make as good of seal.

      you can buy the recir. fittings on ebay for about $15. Why not just drop a few dollars for an actual fitting?

      and then do you attach that to the hks, and does the old dv hose attach to the fitting?

      well if i bought the fitting then i would be spending 15 bucks instead of a dollar haha plus what would i do at work with my spare time........i'll have to post some pics, i think it should seal fine its hard plastic


      and to anwser vrooms question the peice replaces the triangle like pretty think on the outlet side of the bov.... you just take out 4 of the allen key bolts and the cover pops off then replace the recirc fitting with the the one it comes with then hook it up

      Theres a fin insert known as the "high velocity" insert. This produces the high pitches squeek the valve is known for.

      The recirculation hose is only used for the recirculation adapter. The insert, either style is taken out and replaced with the adapter for recirculation. This protrudes from the housing and you can clamp the hose to that.

      The valve in recirculation mode makes pretty much no noise at all.

      i dont car about noise im asking you if the old dv hose attaches to the recirc fitting or do you need to purchase a speacial recirc hose, if so can anyone tell me where and is anything else needed? i can never get this answer out of anyone please help

      just flip your dv hose and get a 1" fitting from the help section at autozone/discount auto parts/pep boys and a could extra clamps.

      if you still cant figure it out sell you car or pay someone else to do your thinking for your. Not to be mean (see sig) but, come on.

      ok thanks. can you show me a pic o the 1" fitting your talking about

      BUMP

      ok here is a step by step for you.

      your stock dv hose will work (not very pretty but will be functional)

      Go to pepboys/autozone? where ever and go to the help accesories section (if you dont know where just at a associate). The part you will be looking for is a coolent line fitting that is strait, black and has flares on the ends to keep the hose from slipping off (PART# 47095).

      while your there pick up a few clamps to secure everything.

      Now when you get home stick one side of the fitting in the intake, then clamp it down. Put the hose on the fitting and on the ssqv and clamp them down. Guess what YOUR DONE.

      I used a diffent hose that made the look and flow alot cleaner. Once you get this to work and feel the need for the differnt hose (Hose sku# 002384 M-3044 cost is $6.50) makes everything much cleaner.

      good luck
