Question eGay BOVs?

hello everyone.... I'm going to bring up the good ole eBay parts topic. I have did some research but looking for some first hand advice.

After moving to CO my turboXS RFL BOV had gave me issues. I was told that it was due to the altitude and that i needed a BOV with a lighter spring. So money is tight so i have been looking on ebay at the BOVs on there. Has anyone had any good/bad dealings with them?

Thanks,
Michael

I ran a HKS style ebay BOV on my last setup. I never had any problems with it, but I've read that they leak under high boost. But I never noticed it.

Maybe altitude does have something to do with it? Because Ive always owned china BOVs, and theyve all had too stiff of a spring. Ive got a TiAL knock off now, and it had the biggest spring in the world in it. So I put one a little shorter and softer in there. I figure, you need enough spring to help the valve seal when in boost. Thats it. IMO.

I have searched for a lighter spring. I have even attempted to contact TurboXS. I may try to call them next week. finding a replacement spring is not the issue, its finding a lighter spring. I was told that i need a 7lb spring and it will work fine.

my egay type s and rs leaked during boost on my dsm. It wasn't a spring problem but the seal of the valve. One egay bov I do like is the one emusa they have a O-ring to seal the valve. Never had exp with the hks ones but for around 60$ you can get a new one.
