pop-off valve 2019
« on: May 23, 2018, 08:29:57 AM »
According to new rules we have to install pop-off valve in 2019, ordered from angleconsulting.com
It cost 300 pounds+delivery (almost like my turbo).
So, may be we order several items for everybody need it and save on delivery?

Also, they say its for R5 cars.
I have no idea how it can be installed on Subaru between throttle body and intake, there is no space.
Has anybody done this on Subaru?
Why it cannot be installed somewhere else, e.g. near bypass valve?

I'm assuming the easy way is to replace the bypass valve with this.

My car has been running without the BPV or a BOV for 7 years and 20 rallies, no problems.

My plan for 2019 is to mount it on the intercooler BPV flange. I may be mistaken and have to have a better look at the rules, but this seems an acceptable solution.

Don't worry Alex, in addition to the pop-off valve, you are now also paying for CARS to fly a tech inspector around the country to all the nationals. We can all afford the extra money!

H'm, I do not see "between throttle body and intake" in the rules anymore. So its more easy now.
But I see this "However, the air passage to the pop-off valve must be a minimum of 32mm diameter" - not sure I can make such big hole in my tiny intercooler. Pipe to my bypass has smaller diameter.

I closed pipe to my bypass once when plastic bypass was broken. 8km later turbo was broken in peaces.

Open 2WD
So, if I remove front axles from my car, it will become heavy Open 2WD car?
Still need restrictor but no pop-off valve?
But its 32mm restrictor for 2WD and just rear wheel drive, not so good...
I don't have 1.5 bar boost anyway because my intercooler overheats even if I put 1.2 bar boost.

Oh, we still have national championship? How many teams compete on all events? 1?
