2021 Forte GT DCT Black
While I was installing my LED fogs, I notice the BPV location and available spacing would easily support an additional intake source of cool clean air. If you disconnect the hose to the BPV at the BPV and relocate it just forward of the BPV, it's a straight shot to a void in the front driverside corner of the car. It would only require a 8-12 in hose/pipe to react the location and then just place a small cone filter on the end. This would allow your intake to draw additional air in through the BPV recirculation port on your intake, and if you route this hose section with a small filter to a cool source, it should serve as quite a cheap and effective upgrade that the work is currently half done for you. An additional 1 inch diameter hose added to your intake, who cares right? Well if you measure out the entire length of an 1 inch piping system to achieve this easy tweak, I'm guessing it'll come in < 3 feet total. The CFM rate of a smooth bore 1 inch pipe at this length likely rivals the total increase of air flow that the Takeda provides over stock as it's pinch point through the front bulkhead isn't radically large. The stock intake (I have a K&N there as well already too) plus an additional cone filter on a 1 in hose should be sufficient for a little 1.6. The idea is also way more trick than disconnecting the hose from the intake and zip tying a vinyl cap over the hole to hear the BPV operate as a BOV. If I decide to go with a JB4, I'll be doing this. The stock intake maintains a pretty tight pinch to incorporate the use of a panel style filter, so I'd agree more flow here is warranted.
