Chances are it was. Its because your car expects the air from the diverter valve to be sent back into the engine. but since you have a blow off valve, its vents into into the atmosphere instead.I actually posted that after I bought and installed the BOV. 30-45 minutes after installing it, I got 3 codes, P2008, 2015 and 0172...2 are for intake manifold runner and 1 is bank 1 too rich. I contacted Forge they said it is not related to the BOV. I just don't see how after less than an hour my flapper motor (variable intake manifold actuator or adjusting valve...whatever you want to call it) would take a shit. I know the units were bad and warrantied early on, and I am unable to verify the part # to see if it was already replaced as it's in the shop getting a clutch.
I'm hoping it is just that motor though, I already got the replacement coming just in case. ECS price matched UroTuning.com's price of $139.99. If it doesn't get rid of the codes I guess I will be taking the BOV off.
A blow off valve vents the extra turbo pressure into the atmosphere. these cars were made for diverter valves, which vent the air back into the engine. so when you have a BOV on thee, the engine expects the air to come back in, and when it doesnt, the car runs bad. so only get diverter valves.Hi,
1) can you explain what a forge BOV is? and why I would want one?
2) P2015 is definitively a bad intake manifold (06J-133-201-AS) , I am currently on my fourth manifold counting the original as well. Almost to the point it is a consumable item! Not too difficult to replace if you have the right set of tools.
