Why are you selling it and any parts you might trade for?

You can buy a VTA spring for it from Global Performance Parts for like ten bucks and shipping. You can even buy a trumpet for it to make it sound cooler. those are like 40 bucks though.

I bought a VTA spring for mine and found it was too heavy. I use the softer spring so it's adjusted just to the point where the valve is closed at idle.

Which spring? The 6115 or 6116 spring? I take it the spring that comes with the recirc bov is too soft and cant be used for vta?

Yeah I was going to say GFB is pretty much the coolest BOV manufacturer out there in my opinion.. I wouldnt trade mine for any other.
If you ever email them you'll most likely talk to Bret (I think that was his name) he's the guy who engineers them. Awesome company they'll bend over backwards to help you out.

I'd recommend someone buy it for the price

I have both, I played with both for a while. the 6116 (the longer one I think) was too stiff I had trouble getting the valve to open unless I was above like 6-7 PSI

I'm using the shorter spring (for recirc) now with the adjustment as stiff as it will go with the lock washer out. I also have the trumpet on mine for more awesome noise. I almost got the whistle trumpet just to be annoying
