i can't think of one build of a car that came naturally aspirated from the factory that uses a top mount by choice.
i've seen a whole lot of build threads too.
do yourself a favor and get a front mount.
87-88 ford t-bird turbo coupe had top mount intercoolers

You have to have a by pass valve, BPV, or a blow of valve, BOV in a turbo setup to relieve the boost when you let off the throttle.

If you already have a BPV then you don't need a bov. If its just a turbo with a waste-gate, and no relief it is dangerous as hell.

Somewhere there has to be something to release 8 psi of boost when the throttle is released.

Yeah my buddy had the issue on his old bug when we put a turbo on his bug with no BOV. Blew the head gasket with all the boost it couldn't handle it. That was fun. Ended up hooking up a BOV with a duck call attached to it.

He is correct, blow off valves are not required, I was just wondering of he had one.
My new twin turbo truck doesn't have one nor did my diesel have one stock.
As long as you don't get compressor surge, or the throttle blowing open after you let off it doesn't matter.
I think some people are confusing it with a wastegate.

Waste gate controls boost, you need a relief as well. My dmax doesn't have a bov either but it does have a relief. Something has to release the boost. My friends dmax runs 42 lbs of boost with no bov. There is a relief in the system or it would blow the throttle blades open.

A bov releases the boost when the throttle is closed suddenly. It prevents compressor surge, continued use without it will cause premature wear/failure of the turbo. Diesels don't have bov bedside they do not have throttle plates.

Good point, diesels just cut the fuel.

You can think what ever you want, But believe me, you do not need a blow off valve. I have a mid 10 sec turbo firebird, i didn't have a blow off valve on it for years, I added one to prevent the charge air tubes from blowing off. Duramax trucks, or any other diesel's for that matter, don't have any kind of "relief system" stock. You can add one to a diesel, but it's not common at all. The only reason for a blow off valve is to prevent turbo surge, and so far there has been no surge. It also helps if the charge air piping is blowing off when you let out of the throttle. I've never heard of the boost pressure pushing open the throttle plate.

No problem with the upper control arm so far.

No dyno numbers yet. But it sure feels great. It has to be making over 200 rwhp. Pretty good considering these things don't even make 150 rwhp stock.

Ok thats pretty neat. Now you do realize that the logical progression of modifications here is now 4.6 stroker kit> more boost> a new transmission to replace the one you just blew up.

Naa, I think a couple of those steps aren't needed considering how the 42re is built. If he's lucky it'll last another month with likely 250 horsepower coming in.

I give it til around the time he gets the new o2 sensor and goes for one of the "long pulls" he's been anticipating.








OP- awesome job, it doesnt need any kind of heat shielding? i figured with the plastic coolant tank and cruise control actuator there that heat would be a problem.

A BOV is not needed but it does have some benefits. When you let off the throttle with no BOV the compressed air will bleed back out the compressor causing the turbo to flutter(the whomp-whomp-whomp sound) The compressor wheel doesn't actually spin backwards but rather stops and continues. This will cause the turbo to not spool back up as quickly as with a BOV. They actually make anti surge compressor housing to prevent it as well.

Another reason for one has to do with MAF based cars so I won't talk about that one.
