BOV to BPV install help!
So im switching from a blitz bov to an OEM bpv on my 2002 wrx

I noticed a problem when I looked at it even further

I'm not sure what its called but there's the part where it connects to the tmic and
A metal line which connects to a rubber hose, and then on the bpv, not on the bov,
There's another hole/flange idk what its called but it lines up to another hose which i think
Is where it recirculates back to the intake, its plugged since I had a bov

At first I thought I just gotta get another hose to extend it to the bpv and done
But the hole/flange looks the same as the one that connects to the tmic
Like it need a gasket or bolts so I'm lost on how to connect it

Sorry for writing so much just trying to make it clear, I'm hoping people who
Already have one understand what I'm talking about

I'm asking pretty much how to connect it to the recirculating hose

Thanks for any feedback!

There should be a hose that comes off the turbo inlet that you push onto the tube on the bpv, it goes undr the throttle body and up to the bpv...put a hose clamp on it and bolt the bpv(2 bolt flange) to the i can explain it

Hope that helps

I realized you can't really read the text, so I edited it for you OP. This should help you out though. What kind if BPV by the way?

Exactly what wrxdan said except you're missing the part that idk what to connect! Or else its the same as a bov
I guess it has two flanges, one for the tmic, and then another, I think recirculates, and then a
Small vacuum line/turbo inlet line, which is parallel to a bigger hose that should connect to the mystery flange

And to the riot act its a stock OEM bpv

Yeah the 08+ doesn't have that extra hose. I figured yours might have been the same. I'm sure one of the bugeye owners will see this.
