My old rx-7 had a hks and like others said its too high pitched whistle sounding I disnt mind it too much as the rotory was loud enough on a 3" dump pipe and no exhaust lol. Greddy bov's used can be had for $80-100 so check eBay or Craigslist .

BTW if your in the market for a bov you can have my knock off greddy type s for $20 shipped as its fixed now .


I have a knock off type s now it works but wanted to get name brand so i dont have to worry bout the issues later. i found a used greddy rz for 100 so i was thinking of getting that. also found a turbonectics raptor for the same price

I had no surge with either of mine. I had mine recirc'd since they were the older models.

If you like your car DON'T !!! Buy or support any knock off parts. Not only are they killing real manufactures off they are making a WAY WAY sub par product that may hurt more than your saving in money... ESP turbos and wastegates. I just saw at the PRI show Turbosmart was knocked off on there wastegate design by some scrub Chinese. Omlany X05 or something sad shame.
