Got the Intercooler and charge pipes done but can NOT figure out this HKS bov at all
Did you get the charge pipes that for the HKS style BOV flange? This is the charge pipe you should have purchased.
CVF Aluminum Intercooler Charge Pipe Kit with HKS Flange (2015-2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost)

You also likely will need this adapter to connect a vacuum hose to the intake for the BOV to operate properly.

Watch this video for clarification on how the adapter is used. They state it's the PCV hose but it is the Evap purge hose not PCV hose you are modifying.

If you have the correct charge pipes for the HKS valve this will get you finished, but be aware that you will be disconnecting the electronic controlled BPV and in doing so there will be a CEL on since the PCM can no longer control the electronic factory BPV. There is a resistor plug you can plug onto the disconnected connector to keep CEL off but not sure where you can get it without also buying a valve. It comes with the turbosmart valve kit.

Hope this helps.

Yessir got the charge pipes with the HKS Flange and every video installation I've seen everybody is hooking up to the opposite side with the bov? I'm about to just take off the charge pipes and put factory one back on until I can get that adapter in.

Okay so I'm done for the day.... that's enough for me, lol. Texas heat killing us.

Few photos though.... got the Wastegate actuator on with the cvf race intercooler and just connected the cvf charge pipes to the intake and left the other factory until I can figure it out. Also got the catch can installed.

Still can't figure out what to do with the opening from the Roush intake
Go to Lowes or Home Depot and buy a 1" chair leg rubber cap to plug off the recirculate fitting on the intake tube with a clamp to hold it on and that issue will be solved.

Here is more info on how the HKS valve works and it needs a manifold pressure/vacuum signal to work correctly which is what the adapter allows you to do by connecting to the evap connection. Or if you prefer you can install a throttle body spacer that has a 1/8" pipe thread to install a pressure/vacuum fitting to get the signal from and not have to butcher the evap hose like the video states to do.

CVF Throttle Body Spacer (2015-2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost) – CV Fabrication (CVF)

If I had a choice, I would go with the CVFab spacer which I have on my car, but just have a pipe plug in the threaded hole versus a threaded nipple to connect the BOV hose to. I don't like modifying factory plumbing if i can avoid it. Cost wise either part is about the same but CVFab does not charge shipping or tax. Call and talk to Jason at CVFab and he will set you up.

Thank you so much for the help yesterday you pretty much said what I was trying to look up on the fly. I shoulda done more research on the universal hks bov and knew I'd need something else. Is there a contact for Jason listed on CVF website?

Once I get the bov situation taken care of which should be soon I'll be looking into my next mod.

Still can't decide whether or not I want to pull the trigger on the Downpipe just yet from what I have read some seem to have issues after going with aftermarket Downpipe.

Thinking about going with big brake kit brembos out front and GT brakes in the rear been looking into some threads on here.

I contacted him thru the mustang6g forum so you may want to join that forum as well. Here is his profile there where you can start a conversation with him from tab in his profile. Or just send an email to CVFab website requesting to have Jason respond back to you.

Blad to help. From the info i have read of you install an aftermarket downpipe that has a 200 cell cat you will most likely have to also buy a post cat O2 spacer to fool the PCM to keep from setting a post cat efficiency code. You will also need a custom tune to get the most out of the DP. Most tuners now will not tune your car if you have a non catted DP also due to EPA cracking down on the tuners.

I still need to check them out over there when I get out of work today I'll look into it. I'll definitely be contacting Jason thanks for that.

The Downpipe I'm looking at is kooks GREEN catted DP but tbh I still need to do my research on them compared to their regular catted DP since there is a huge jump up in price between the two. I'd be pairing it with the FP Borla Sport Cat-Back

Yep, check out mustang6g forum and search for "the great intercooler thread" to see Jason's post and start a conversation with him, you can get a code for 5% off your orders.

I think the Kooks green DP means it is probably 50 state legal and CARB certified versus non green DP but not sure. it would explain the added cost to certify it CARB compliant. The factory DP has a 400 cell cat whereas most aftermarket DPs are a 200 cell cat so half the size of material inside cat resulting in half the restriction and less efficient at cleaning the exhaust hence the CEL and need for O2 spacer to fool PCM. If the DP is full 3" and the Borla is also full 3" then you very likely will need custom tune to get the most out the system. I have no firsthand experience on that but have been told by both PD tuning and Tune+ that you need custom tune but then they are tuning for a living so I would expect them to state that as well.
