    I was speaking with one of my friends that is putting a new turbo kit on his Civic... And I told him.. I recently took off the recirculating tube off of my BOV to dump to the atmosphere and blocked the hole.. He said I should leave it the way it was. (Recirculating) He said if I leave it the way it is it would make the car run lean... (Haven't driven it yet) Or I would have to tune it in order to dump it into the atmosphere.. Is this true or should I be fine. I do plan on getting rid of the restrictive air intake hose.. To where I get rid of the recirculating hose...

    Would like some thoughts on this... Hope I don't sound confusing... Posting this from my phone....

    What "hose" are you referring to, the the bov hose? You can't really get rid of it, you need it for air to travel between the charge pipe and inlet, to "recirculate" or "bypass".

    Follow that link and the top question plenty of info on your question. Not trying to be rude, but go through the resource section of the forum and read all of it. There is a ton of great information in there. I don't mind answering a question that has been asked before, but when it's asked a billion times it isn't worth it. I always go through the search bar before posting that way I don't waste other people's time.
