Default Ebay SSQV

So i've been looking to get a BOV for my turbo. I like how it sounds but 250 bucks is a bit pricey for a bov from hkss website.

Anyhow so i saw some one selling an old model HKS SSQV i decided to email the seller whos name is spelled trubo, yes trubo...

Dear snail_trubo,

So is the piston and the cylinder inside the BOV aluminum or plastic?

- tripzter


Dear tripzter,


Flange, Hose, Adapter, Hardware - all are aluminum

- snail_trubo

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hmm aluminum hose? Fun stuff
i emailed the seller back.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear snail_trubo,


The hose is aluminum too? come on guys seriously?

- tripzter

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
we'll see their response

that aside what do you guys recommend that sounds similar to the ssqv thats worth the money and wont break a week later? Does forge make anything similar?

First of all, the piston is plastic. Second of all, you will get tired of the ricey noise it makes and take the noise maker out of there, then it will sound like all the other blow off valves. But they do work fine.

I think the joke is on you for expecting a fleabay vendor to actually know what they're selling.

They don't make them. Heck, they probably never even seen one in person. It comes from some factory in china in a box, they slap their sticker on it, and post it on ebay. That's about it.

You're lucky the seller even knows how to speak a little english.

Oh and ssqv is insanely ricey and sounds gayer than a bag of dicks. lol

A de-whistled SSQV is actually one of the quieter valves on the market. I liked mine.

On an HKS you take off the front cover and remove the 'fin'. A RFL is just going to be like it says. REALLY ******* LOUD. You could probably fit some sort of filter on the end of it to provide muffling.

I like the way it sounds in every way except the ******* whistle. If I could just get rid of that i'd be happy.

I dont think it has any kind of fin inside. It just has a horn that, if removed, does nothing.

If you're going to go with ebay BOVs I would recomend nothing other than RFL. Despite being Really Fucking Loud, it is a simple design with only 3 parts: The housing, spring and piston. This thing honestly couldn't get any simpler, and even though I got mine for 40 to my doorstep, I honestly don't think it could be built any better, you'd have to be TRYING to make one of these bad quality.

I have the regular Greddy knock-off. Works fine. I got it for about $40 also, with an adapter pipe, an extra flange, and the vacuum hose.

Do you have aruminum vaccume hose? Seriousry though, since they're chinese they're obviousry going to be some bad ones. The ones that work do so very werr, but I'd stirr buy the one with the reast chance of not working out of the box.

Has anyone run one of the Tial Q bov? I saw it on BEGi's site and hadn't heard of it before but it looks pretty sweet.
