At least they can hear theirs. I can only hear mine with the hood off. Maybe the new intake will be louder.

Bah, i roll a circa ~1990 HKS BOV Type 1 "Racing" or whatever the ****. Enormous piston. Looks huge in the engine bay. Uses "Greddy" flange. (Which fun fact, was HKS first... Greddy stole the design, so HKS changed)

It's dead quiet and awesome.

I picked up a used Turbosmart Kompact Dual Port for under $100 shipped here in the classifieds. It's a single piston but meh? It's in perfect shape after a little disassembly, cleanup and lube. It needs a fitting for the plumb-back portion I want to use (I need quiet/silent) but its still going to end up under $100 in the end.

Pick a brand/part number and start looking somewhere other than eBay.

I should probably just pick up a dsm 1g and call it done, but they're all so nasty looking. I know form follows function, but mehhh.

Yeah, the Turbosmart Bosch replacement ones are like $120 new as well.

Hell, if you want to be a cheap bastard, just get a plastic Bosch one. It should work fine for a while if you just want to throw it together and get it running.

I had a blitz and I kept getting some surge. I switched to this super JDM TYYTTTEEEE NGR bov and it works really well. It sounds super gay though. It's basically a greddy type-s.

I ordered one thinking it would be brand new... I think all ngr does is buy up greddy bov's put their own replacement diaphragms in and run them across a buffing wheel. Not impressed because they give the impression of them being new. I bitched though and they gave me some extra parts and a new one (still not new). They must think everyone is stupid to not notice the bad buff job. ANYWAY. Works perfect. ~$150.

Well, the seller refunded my money, so that's nice.

However, along with it was a message that they double checked with their supplier, and these *are* in fact genuine HKS Super SSQV IV blow off valves--it's just that they have been re-painted by a third-party, and that I'm wrong about them being knockoffs.


Soooo if anyone wants a genuine, custom painted, HKS SSQV IV for about 20% MSRP you know where to find it.

honestly I have run those super tyte jdm hks knocks off for a couple years (without whistle fins) and ended up having to run two at a time to prevent surge (stupid move) and have gone through 4!! of them in the past 3 years. this year bought a Tial Q looking forward to set it and forget it reliability.
