  8. Apply a small amount of downward pressure to pull the inlet off of the BPV, then pull it outward from the inlet.

  10. Pull the BPV away from the factory hot pipe.




  11. Push the back portion of the COBB LF BPV into the charge pipe then orient it similar to the factory BPV before pushing the turbo inlet up and on.  You can then screw the inlet back in and reconnect the rest of the clamps and hoses.
