    Hi All,
    Finally got the courage to start a thread and say hello.
    I own a 2007 3MPS which I purchased brand new.
    Over the years I have added a few mods. The main ones I currently have, and not in any order are -

    CPE CAI
    CPE Standback (tuned by MPS Garage)
    Corksport TIP
    ETS 3.25" TMIC
    CPE 60 Duro Engine Mount
    Turbosmart Dual Port BOV
    Corksport Mid Pipe
    Boost Gauge
    Genie SS High Flo Muffler

    I have a question about my BOV setup. As you all know the Standback has the ability to be setup so the BOV can VTA. At the moment I have it setup as 50:50 recirc/VTA. The spring tension is tightened to about half way. Every now and then when on light boost and then changing gears from 2nd to 3rd, I hear a pop/backfire. When on WOT and full boost I doesn't seem to do it.
    My current Fuel Cut Settings on the Standback are -
    Fuel Restore TPS - 1
    Fuel Cut Volts - 1.2
    Min MAP Enable - -04.00
    Fuel Restore RPM - 1200
    MAF Volt Clip - 4.90

    What am I doing wrong ?
    Do I need to tighten the BOV spring more ?

    Cheers

    Hi There! Welcome to OzMPSClub!

    Try running the BOV in full recirc.. that will most likely fix the issue..
    I have the GFB BOV and in 50/50 it pops sometimes.

    Increase the spring tension a little more and see if it helps.
