Hey all, I just ordered the CP-E HKS BOV Kit. I started the install and I realize that I dont have the o-ring on my factory BOV. Theses morons at a shop that did my exhaust, decided it would be cool to disconnect my bov for a short time to see how it sounded, they lost it, and of course never mentioned it to me. Should I go on with the install without the factory BOV o-ring and if yes what does it do. If not any ideas where I can get another one? (other than mazda)

You need to go back to the dealership and bust some ass. If you can't trust the technician working on your 32,000 dollar machine to put something as simple as an o-ring gasket back on when he is monkeying around with your car, he isn't worth a damn.

That kind of crap just roasts me. And to think you wouldn't have noticed it until it potentially caused you a problem later on if you hadn't of been trying to install a new BOV! :irate:

I would recommed getting one before installing your bov. The two surfaces are very flat so it might not leak but if it does you will have a bad boost leak. Also i dont think you will be able to find one anywhere other than Mazda. The car has not been around long enough for other companys to start making parts like that.

I would just call order the part and go pick it up not in your MS6 so they have no idea who you are. That way you can stay away from warranty problems.

Or go up to Autozone and buy a sheet of rubber/cork gasket paper for $5.65 and make your own gasket. Especially if you're using an adapter flange
which has a flat surface to begin with; unlike the stock bov.

But definitly bust some ass about taking off your bov and losing the part.

You could check Rosenthal Mazda on this site. They should be able to get the O-ring and not jump on your case.
