How much boost are you planning to run?

From your sig I'd guess substantial. Nice link

I paid 75 for mine.

I'd think leaving the quick response feature is preferrable though. Just get a socket, put the socket against the cap and crush it in a vice for higher boost. Less work and still responds well.

Irritating how everyone picks on hondas... " Or you could just leave the port open to outside air but you loose the fast release feature which is fun for scaring the hell out of honda drivers ;-) "
Yes... a large portion of ricers = honda drivers... but there are also a lot that won't flinch at another cars bov popping off

Meh!

I just thought it was interesting, Im not going to be running anywhere near enough boost to have a problem with that bov, but at least its on the forum for searching in the future

I want a greddy typeS in a big way, but funds as they are. Getting paid once a month makes me feel like Sisyphus.
