    They also need some sort of special fitting to make it even possible to recirculate it.

    1g for the win. Then they sell leak stop kits if you're planning on running lots and lots of boost.

    Crushing 1g BOVs seem to be hit or miss for most people. I'd rather just pay the 50 dollars for the leak stop kit and be sure it'll work. I wouldn't say that it loses any allure though--total cost would be 75 dollars for me.

    If you want one that is guaranteed to work correctly, sack up and get a TiAL
