putting a bov on my 7.3

I have been looking in to putting a bov on my truck. I know some of the guys on here are going to say to research the forum i didn't find what i was looking for. Here is why i am looking in to putting one on... i did my pushrods and valve springs gained 2psi. Went and seen what its got at 3/4 throttle 27 lbs of boost 130 mph. When i let out all the pressure hit the tranny really hard. So i need another way of releasing the boost. I know they don't make vacuum.but what about the intake or the air intake. Help is much needed to figure this out. Sorry if any wierdly spelled words did this from my phone. Its got auto correct.


Mike

Well i let out of it and it was like the boost released and the pressure put a strain on it i guess you can say. I checked my intake for vacuum strength and it was really weak. Do the bov's require alot of vacuum? There may be slot under high boost but it probably releases pretty quick

Do you have a stock turbo? With the mods you have a stock turbo will surge and bark when you put the hammer down

What size injectors do you have? Have you dyno'd at 460? unless you have some big stage 2s you are no where near that. I have 180/100 and with a 38r I'd still only be around 450.

The stage 2s will kill the stock turbo very quick. You have no need for a BOV, just get a bigger turbo. Even a van turbo. There is nothing "hitting your tranny" unless you are feeling the tc being locked and slowing the truck. Put a vb and tc in the tranny to help it live. It's not if, it's when you kill it running stage 2s on a stock trans with no upgrades.

No your not. Sorry, that dinky stock turbo isn't making anywhere near 460whp.

My money is on this. When these trucks' tc's are locked, they are basically in direct-drive and every time you touch the throttle, its like engaging the clutch in a manual, and every time you let off, it pulls the clutch off. So it can be rigid.
