Default BMS inlets - 08-28-2019, 11:24 PM

Hi,

So I am in the process of replacing my original 2008 335xi stock turbos at 186k miles. I am thinking to just get the FCPEuro OE turbo's because I feel like these turbos are pretty much just going to be replaced every 100k miles anyways (might as well just pay once and be done with it).

My question is, I'm thinking to get the BMS inlets:
https://burgertuning.com/products/bm...silicon-inlets

1) If I am running a Tial-Q BOV and never plan to go back to Diverter Valves, does BMS make them without the two DV holes? Does the kit come with a cap for the DV holes?

2) If I plan to install stock turbos, could I still install the 2" bms inlet reliably so that way I can help future proof myself incase I do change to a bigger turbo?

3) Is this the correct inlet set to retain the stock location setup? I don't want to have to relocate everything.

If you are running a BOV, then you already closed off the diverter tubes going to the inlets. (Or at least you SHOULD have...).

Replacing the stock inlets with these will still use the stock diverter tubing that was sealed off when the BOV and new charge pipe was installed.

So what do new customers do when switching over to a BOV from stock DV (Doesn’t apply to me i know, my ER CP came with a cap for the DV)? I was hopeful for less turbulent airflow as air usually hugs the walls and will tend to move towards the opening of the DV (no longer needed in my case).

It's a 1" hole. You can go to hardware store and get a plug and plug it and use the provided clamps to hold it shut.

I've had people install the 2" on the stock turbo that's 1.75" you just need to tighten the clamp tighter.

Going through this process now on a RHD car. Oh joy.....have to remove the rack and steering shaft because it's all in the same spot as the snails.
