This guide is to help with the installation of the Agency Power Adjustable BOV and Silicone Hose on the Can-Am Maverick X3
Step1: Locate the factory silicone boost hose on top of the engine/under the intercooler. Loosen the two 8mm worm drive clamps and remove the factory silicone hose from the x3. You can access the clamp nearest to the turbo by going through the X3’s access panel. The clamp on the intercooler can be accessed on the out side of the vehicle. see photos below for reference.
Step 2: Once the hose is removed you can now replace it with the Agency Power Silicone hose and install the Agency Power Blow-Off Valve with the provided clamps.
Step 3: Next Locate the Boost/vacuum reference block off plate on the intake manifold, use a T30 Torx to remove the plate and replace it with the provided Agency Power Vacuum/Boost Reference port.
Step 4: Route the provided vacuum hose from the manifold to the Agency Power blow-off valve. Make sure to route the hose away from any exhaust components or moving parts.
Adjusting the Blow-Off Valve
The Agency Power Adjustable Blow-Off Valve does not come preset and will need to be adjusted to suit the vehicle.
To adjust the valve turn the cap either clockwise or counterclockwise. Turning the cap on the valve counterclockwise will decrease the pressure on the piston, while turning the cap clockwise will increase the pressure on the piston.
- Start with the cap on the valve set to its maximum softest setting. Do not rotate past the O-Ring. The O-Ring should be completely covered by the cap.
- Start the vehicle and let it idle.The port should be closed off by the piston and not floating or moving.
- Rev the engine in park and let off quickly, the engine should return to normal idle speed and the valve should be closed. If the valve is open tighten the cap clockwise one turn and test again.
- Test drive the vehicle. The BOV should remain closed under throttle/boost and open momentarily when releasing the throttle.
