I like the downpipe, looks massive.
Like Olderguy/Bruce! haha actually I think some do that so it holds more boost; the pressure in the charge pipe isn't pushing the piston up. I think
the HKS BOV is designed like this. I think it's wrong to do it like that...unless you have a really restrictive intercooler or something that causes an unusually large pressure difference between the bottom (charge pipe) and top (intake manifold after the throttle body) of the BOV that overcomes the spring pressure when the car is under boost.
Otherwise under boost there should be the same pressure on each side of the BOV piston (same surface area). The spring (with very light preload) on top keeps the piston down and the BOV shut.
I run my old style FM piston BOV with very little spring preload and it doesn't leak and vents when it should (basically almost all the time when not under boost). OK enough on my theory of BOV function.

Tim I'm thinking you need a similiar auction eBay.
Me neither, but it does fit with all the crap under the hood of the MSM and allows a nice DP.
Nice price for what you get; the photos are of the more expensive stainless version.
I would sell my stuff on eBay (or here) more officially IF I knew it fit with accessories and I had a DP jig. Maybe once I get in the new house and have time/space for that sort of thing.
