The best "type S" knock off is easily the NRG type S. It will sound the same and uses much better internal construction and seals.

But...it's loud as ****. I mean retarded loud. It was so loud that I could easily hear it over Buffon's 3" straight pipe at full throttle. But then again, I do love obnoxiously loud bov's, so it didn't bother me one bit.

Just a fair warning for those looking for a Type S without all the original Type S issues and leaks.

Historically they leak under high boost pressures. Mine was pretty flaky over 20psi.
