<200$ for something made this well is a pretty good deal. There is no chance of this thing leaking or having a diaphragm fail since it is piston based.

I would recommend keeping the green spring in instead of going to the yellow like I did to prevent the CEL P2261.


Don't mind the focus :p just listen to the video

A bit pricy compared to what? What were you expecting to pay for a quality aftermarket bov? Price seems okay to me. Definitely nice, but I'm leaning towards the Synapse.
synapse probably will not fit in the stock location and will need an adapter to fit in the stock location. It will probably cost 100$ more easily to use a synapse BOV.

I was looking at your pictures and it most definitely will not fit. I have the Synapse on my 240sx at the moment and it's a large bov. I was planning to block the stock location and mount the synapse somewhere in the engine bay in case I ever upgrade the intercooler and the new one doesn't have a bolt-on location like the oem ic. I've yet to gone under or looked in the engine bay yet to find a good spot for it.

I can't get the video to play.....
For a "non engine knowing" person like me, how difficult of a mod would this be for me? I would probably have my mechanic do it anyways but I wouldn't mind giving it a try.

I think the BOV mounts to the top of the FMIC, which would put it under the bumper, So it should fit.

link works.. it is photobucket, so that means it takes a while to load. just verified that it is still working!!

yeah, obviously fits since I have it installed :p JUST fits under the plastic piece that is attached to the bumper.

I was trying to watch thru my phone before, thats probably why I couldn't view it. Just watched it on my laptop, sounds and looks cool!!!!

So do you think a non-engine savvy person like me can install it or should I just let my mechanic do it?

do NOT waste your money having a mechanic install this.. Anyone who knows how to use a socket set and a screwdriver can manage this install quite easily.

all BOV's sound different.. All has to do with how big, the size and how far it opens. The HKS BOVs have different inserts so they sound different..

To add to this, the Forge BOV is actually one of the loudest BOV's able to project a loud psssssssssh. On another note, your welcome to try out as many as you like... a lot of people go through several BOV's before they fall in love with one. I know people that liked the Forge BOV instead of the HKS and vice versa. It depends on your taste and what you are looking for.

I was looking for a loud, sort of explosive "pshss"
