    Synapse is a good BOV, it's also synchronic and very user friendly.
    TiAL makes good stuff, even the GReddy line is okay.

    Ebay intercooler is ok, the piping dents easy and never fits right. As for bov HKS seq BOV but not all will fit you need to buy pipe made to fit or weld a flange on.

    would the piping still be considered "ok" ? coz it could b a great help to have at least something pieced together doesnt matter if I have to weld or bend some parts in addition for it to fit.

    If you're capable of some mild fab work, eBay piping works great.

    i have heard nothing but good things about the Tial BOV. it's a little more expensive because it's a good product.

    I have heard an HKS SSQV and they sound ok (it was on a skyline). I am told that DSM bovs (like off a 2nd gen eclispse/talon tsi) are supposed to be excellent. Check out homemadeturbo.com and read some of their turbo projects, they say which parts worked well and which ones sucked ass.
    BTW I got a "BOV" (although technically i think its a "recirculation valve" or some crap :p) from a ford probe turbo and I'm pumped for it to not work at all.

    hks ssqv is a good product but is the "ricey" bov because of the loud, annoying sound it gives off (some ppl like the Fast & Furious stuff). TIAL is def. the best bov out there, in my opinion. If you're on a budget, like DISABLEDDAN stated, 1g and 2g eclipse/talon turbo bov's work great and are cheap. They can hold 30psi when "crushed". g/l
