I'd like to point out that I have since reversed the direction of my BPV. I am now using the side port as the input end and the bottom port as the output end. After visually inspecting the insides of the BPV, I decided that using it in that direction would enable the valve to hold the most boost without leaking.

I have mine hooked up "reversed" from your pic (the way you have yours hooked up now... side in / end out), and it holds 21 psi no problem.

Not a good close up pic, but my install looks almost the same as Steves... I just tapped into the IC tank several inches farther back (toward the firewall) than Steve did. My install was a bit tighter than Steves, as I still have functioning A/C.
