Loosen, turn, tighten is NOT a problem.

Disconnect vacuum line and move it IS a POTENTIAL problem, unless you run an aftermarket pcm that pushes the fuel cutoff out of range. Jet and INTENSE are known to do this.

IF you run one of these pcm'*, don't worry, as the boost bypass is done by the PCM anyway, and it'* pointless.

If you do NOT run a PCM, it might be a problem doing the boost BYPASS trick. Not the BCA adjustment.

So, don't do it if you don't have a chip.

And don't do it if you do have a chip, as the chip does it anyway.

So, don't need to do it at all, then, right?

First of all, you don't need to yell. We can hear you just fine (turn caps off please).

Secondly, you can't get an INTENSE PCM for a 96. And Jet doesn't sell a chip that deletes overboost protection on a 96 to my knowledge.

The boost bypass trick is simply moving a vacuum line. Prevents the PCM from dumping boost to protect the engine. It CAN be very dangerous especially if you hit fuel cutoff and your boost can't dump. BOOM.

The BCA Mod is in Techinfo. It'* adjusting the BCA to get you into boost quicker (and not by much), and has no effect on the amount of boost at all.

hrm... note to self: Don't push the car with mod done.


I did this yesterday and I could feel the difference, as well as see it (gas mileage is going to suck this tank!) My car is completely stock at the moment. I am thinking of going back to it'* stock location for gas mileage purposes and if I need to, adjust it again.

Yes. But not push down, more like ROTATE.

Yes.

A jet PCM would NORMALLY move the fuel cutoff out of range assuming you could actually get a chip for your car, which you probably can't. It would also delete the overboost protection making the BCS bypass MOOT. Unnecessary. No point.

Quote:

None of them until you get a chip that moves your fuel cutoff above your redline.
