problem with cyclic Bc

i'm having troubles understanding the cyclic BC in Openfoam,
what i would like to know is if it is possible to access and change the velocity field in a cyclic bc, to set a non-uniform custom bc.
and if it is, should i try to change the owner patch or the slave patch?
i've looked several times at cyclicFvPatchField.C
and it doesn't at any point make a reference to the owner patch, the only thing i've concluled is that it sets the neighbour patch to be the same as the internalfield.
const cyclicFvPatchField<Type>& cyclicFvPatchField<Type>::neighbourPatchField()
const GeometricField<Type, fvPatchField, volMesh>& fld =
static_cast<const GeometricField<Type, fvPatchField, volMesh>&>
return refCast<const cyclicFvPatchField<Type> >
so i would really appreciate if someone could give me an idea on how to change the bc to set a custom velocity vector field, for the cyclic bc. (i need the cyclic bc cause i also need to use the fan bc for a pressure jump).
