    Make sure your vacuum lines are connected properly. The blow off valve wont open, if there's no vacuum to tell it to.

    hks bov

    it could just be from the flash from his camerabut if you look at the first picture the adjustment screw looks like it has had tools on it in the past.in the second picture the cap nuts around the circumference of the bov also look like they have had tools on them also. you said it was bought new on ebay. was it in the factory sealed hks box or was it just sent to you in another box and said to be new because to me the valve looks like someone has messed with it in the past (like i said earlier could be the flashfrom you camera) if it wasn't i would guestion the ebay seller

    I used to have a 100% Atomspheric BOV, the TurboXS RFL, and although I didn't really mind the sound, it went off ALL THE TIME...like...lift off throttle at 2200rpms, and it would go off.

    Also, the 100% atmospheric BOV doesn't recirculate, meaning no air back through the intake. You'll run rich and get worse gas mileage.

    If I were ever to pick up another one, I'd go with one that recirculated -- something around a 50/50 set up.
    ive looked around at about 2 or 3 places and they are going to sell the HKS bov for $285!!! are they ripping me off?

    Hey josh, wouldn't it be the same gas mileage, I mean its not like the car will throw in more gas just because there isn't that extra air in the intake from the recirculating valve. All it does is make you run rich for a second.

    use the blue first, if it does not blow off enough for your liking use the yellow one.

    red
    blue
    yellow
    green

    in order of stiffest to softest

    hope this helps
