bov should have a vac line on top. that will apply the boost pressure to it...thus keeping it closed at any boost level, given that has enough spring pressure at zero vac to keep it closed. most bov's actually flutter open at idle, under vac. there isnt much "setting up of a bov" to handle a set amount of boost. what are you refering to when you say it will " bleed off to its set level"?
