So I bought my turbo for my FA-5 and now im finishing up paying for the Clutch kit and I should be spoolin shortly... my question is which blow off valve should i buy for my car? HKS, Greddy RS, RFL? the possibilities are endless but clips and past experinces can help me out on my decision, oh and one facto to include money isnt a factor when it comes to my car... Thank you in advance to all of you who put in your 2 cents worth...

Depends on teh sound you want. The Greddy BOV have weak springs in my opion. I had the Greddy on my kit and planned to upgrade the spring until I decided a different route. Everyone seems to like the symapse (spelling) BOV and teal is the best around in my opion. After I say that I will be putting on the Blitz BOV on my new kit.

the HKS SSQV is really loud. However, if you want something that sounds like a "whoosh" of air instead of an annoying squeal then go for the TiAL 50mm BOV.

Personally... IF IT WAS MY CAR... i'd get the TiAL ...

Did you mean Tial? I know they are some of the best quality, but if you are going for sound...you might be disappointed. They are very quiet.

Blue, is this one option for the problem with the AJP kit? With the MAF and an external BOV?
It is one option. You need a BOV that has the ability to recirculate back rather than venting to atmosphere. Other issues can be resolved by ditching the mini-filters and running hoses back to the intake after the MAF (that way the crankcase and valve on the intake manifold both receive metered air).

edit2- When you going to get it tuned? you going to GTmotoring? if so let me know maybe i'll hitch a ride ;)
Rofls. Glad I bought that now. I'm Lovin my parents. I remember when I made that thread "Did/Do your parents Suck!?" I take that thread back. My parents are kickass atm.

It'll be at least Spring before I get the install. I need to save up $500+ for install and get a quote on Tuning.

Jebus! I just found out my BOV Got in before the Turbo. I'm gonna pick it up tomorrow and post pix.
