Default Hks or Blitz bov?

I have a T3 set up for my 95, just wondering whether i should buy the hks universal bov or the blitz. Well im planning to buy the real one, but i see alot of replicas on ebay going alot cheaper, for this do you get what you pay for?

Why would you waste money on something that a cheap ebay valve or a volvo/mitsu valve can do?

If you're planning on VTA for the sound, don't get a Bosch bypass valve. They're quiet even VTA.

Im am currently using this "guide" for Ebay BOVs. http://www.siliconeintakes.com/index...b6f46a8da4eeb0
Click on the BOv you want and it will give you pointers, like for the tial style it says
Boost Strength High - 30+ PSI
Ease of Installation Installation and adjustment can be very tricky with this BOV. It does, however, include the weld-on flange.
Versatility Not built with adjustability in mind. Impossible to recirculate into intake. However, it uses a simple V-band flange design.
Prestige This is simply the best looking BOV available. It also has the largest piston size of any BOV we have seen, suggesting that it is built for big boost - and it is.
Blitz > HKS sound wise. personal opinion =)
