Default Bosch BOV with JGS Tool Check Valve

Looks more robust for a similar price. Says it'll work with BOVs with 1.5" connection. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Bosch is 1" yes? If so, i take it I'll need a 1.5"-1" reducer. Do they even make those? What other option is there? I hear the Lowe's/HD Check valve likes to puke its guts.

There's a $7 brass 3/4" check valve. That shouldn't puke it's guts.

Think he's referring to "Lowe's/HD" in your post.

Just curious, what's the purpose of this device? Just to avoid the recirc plumbing or are there other advantages?

Lots run VTA because it sounds cool, or at least they think it does.

Which way do you think BEGI does it?

VTA is for pcv's and compressor backwash sounds just as cool as a bov.

It let's you run open atmosphere on air metered cars. I think it only vents positive pressure, but I'm not positive on that. They're supposed to sound decent, not overly obnoxious but still some sound.

For the record, mine is recirculated and just as loud as any VTA setup.

Really? I thought recirculated BOVs were nearly silent. If not, well, then why don't people like recirculating?

Yeah, mine's fairly loud, too...built into the compressor housing (Volvo turbocharger). Quite noticeable at part-throttle, when it's partially vented.
