Vacuum line can connect to any boost source from the intake manifold that is after the throttle body.

I have a V band fitting welded to my hot pipe on the underside of it, a turbosmart 38mm universal BOV with the plumb back snout screwed on, and a short length of universal silicone radiator hose that joins it directly to the (GKTech) metal intake pipe.

Previously, I had a side mount with a HKS SSQV fitted to the OEM location. I bought the Plumb-back fitting the for HKS, fitted it, then ran the (same, but longer) hose down the same hole as the cooler piping, and connected it to the same point on the intake.

will take a picture later of current setup if you need it to be clearer.

A few pics would be great! Would love to see what you have done. As this definitely sounds like the best option.

Good news also, I found the stock recirculation valve. Didn't even know it was there! Was hidden underneath and blocked off with a plastic cap just the as the moderator above had mentioned. Was put there by the previous owner.

As Varvs said, a hot pipe with V-band welded fitting, plumb back BOV & short hose recirculating back to your intake would be the ideal setup.
Assuming you have a stock intake pipe, or something of the same design, this will make for a clean simple install.
I have a Turbosmart 34mm BOV with V-band clamp for sale if you decide to go in that direction.


Well turbosmart is definitely my bov of choice. What colour is it? Its a plumb back? I'd prefer black but blue would probably be okay as you will barely even be able to see it anyway.

Is this the one you're talking about? Do I have to get a hot pipe made up to fit and welded or do turbosmart sell an adapter pipe for it?

The one I have is a dual port, can be setup for 100% vent, 100% plumb back or 50/50 both.
That pipe is the right design, but it's hard to tell if it would fit without more details.
It shouldn't be hard to find one or have somebody fabricate one for you.
Here is a link to my BOV:
