    GFBs tend to leak.

    They leak period from not being able to hold boost.

    I had a GFB adjustable 50/50 on full recirc for a little while, and it leaked pretty bad. My car stalled on the highway several times before I replaced it.

    And I've read posts on NASIOC about the same issues with the same valve.

    Wow that's weird and that sucks. I have never had any problems with mine but I'll keep an eye on it...
