I am planning on running more boost this year. I am running a S-trim in a 1986 Capri. I know I need to upgrade the stock plastic bypass. I do not have a inlet or discharge tube at all. The only set up I have seen advertised is from Anderson Ford Motorsport.

My question is what set ups are you 5.0 guys using? Who made them? Pro's/Con's?

Thanks in advance for any info. Thanks, Mike

Try it with just the one. The valve will hold the pressure. I tested mine up to 25psi and it worked. If you test it, you need to applie air to the vac line port and the end that sees boost at the same time. Garentee it won't move. What the problem might be is air volume. Some times the engine needs to get ride of all the boost and the single valve can't do it. Thats when either you need to add 2 or step up. For what its worth, I ran a single up to 18lbs . no issues. I don't like the oval tubed race bypass. Can't make it look good. I would add 2 and be different !

I was concerned with the amount of air the Bosch valve will flow. I am planning to run 17-18 PSI with a T or YS trim. I know there is a lot of air flow at that boost level.

302man thanks fo the input.

Anybody else?
