i just had a baileys valve installed by AWE and I just wanted to know when installing it should i be able to read bailey's or should it be written sideways because they have it installed sideways.......

I would venture to say AWE knows how to install it correctly.

They'll all work both ways, but with a 710N you want the spring loaded end facing the IC piping (which is reverse of how it's installed stock).

The Bailey's you want in the stock position. It has been tested to show that the spring loaded end held LESS pressure than the reverse. Therefore, you want to install it like the stock one, with the springloaded end facing opposite of the IC piping.

This is the stock orientation:

ComingSoon - FYI, I tried to respond to your PM, but your box is full. You may want to make sure you empty out the "Sent Messages" folder.

Regarding your message:

The easiest way to tell is to remove the BPV, and figure out which end is the springloaded one (by looking in, or pushing your finger in there). That's the end you want to point into your airbox piping (meaning, away from the IC piping).

The only reason I say that is b/c my BPV is in a different location than later models (I'm a 97). So, I'm not sure how to explain the orientation of where the vac hose is pointing, since they may be different.
