it only really needs to be closed under boost, i had a 40mm tial that stayed partially open at idle.

as long as it holds boost, and blows off when you let off the gas, that's all that matters....

A real greddy type rs bov only has one spring and mine was open at idle. If it has 2 springs in it its a knockoff. Depending on how much psi your boosting will determine which spring to remove.

If it doesnt look like this it aint real. But greddy knockoff bov are carbon copies of the real thing in function. I have a knockoff type s and it works great just had to remove the stiffer spring since i was only running like 10psi.

Very similar bov to a dsm and those like to open under vac also. I would say its normal for that type of bov to do that.

Not true. The greddy type rs does have two spring in it. The ebay type rs shit on me so I was using my cousin's greddy type rs for a while until I went with an apexi bov. I have to take one spring out of the greddy type rs for it to even open at idle. Compressor surge pretty badly too.
