That valve has 34mm ports. So if you need 25mm you'll need a different model.

Or get a 25 to 34 mm silicone adapter from pegasus racing. It's $25 though. Im using a Forge BOV (the ram style) It was $115 and so far so good, a lot cheaper than greddy or hks

I used a ebay RFL (worked for about a year) and now an ebay type S. The combined cost of both these BOVs is roughly half of the cost of this one Never really could justify an expensive BOV, if I could, I would buy the SSQV.

34-25mm silicon adaptors from Pegasus would be a SiliconHoses.com part. I'm the US sales manager for both SH.com and Forge...

Vivid can get you a 25mm through us for cheaper than the 34mm valve.

Our valves are warrantied for life. I'd rather spend more initially than have my car down from a failed part. But maybe thats just me. Also, valves that "work" can be leaking a slight amount all the time or close slower than others. This will net an increase in turbine shaft speed and intake temps. Neither of which are desirable.

Also, ethically I don't like the idea of companies stealing the work of another. Someone has to assume the R&D expense not to mention pricing parts to support warranty support.

What about a DSM blowoff valve? Ive got one in the shed that'll be going on one of these days. main issue with these is welding a flange onto your pipes, but thats really no prob for me.
