BOV pipe

On the top of the BOV is a connector for a pipe. It has never had anything on it since Ive owned the car, should it vent somewhere?

Do you have a vacuum line attached to it at all?

No there does not appear to be any vacuum pipes attached. Where would it connect to? The engine is running fine and it makes marvellous noises through the valve, but feel this should be connected to something.

The outlet at the top of the valve in the pic needs to have a vacuum line connected to it from the inlet manifold.

Sorry didnt make it clear, the is a pipe to connect to the larger outlet, its just the small one on top that is not connected.
Cant see where on the inlet manifold this will connect to and what effect will this have on my car.

It won't be opening the valve and more likely the boost your turbo is creating will be pushing it open, which will make your turbo work harder to create the boost your car is set at.

In this pic you can see where it should be attached onto the inlet manifold

Just had a quick look and cant see where I can connect on the inlet. There is a silicon pipe going to a black catch tank, but cant see a blanked off pipe
