So a certain person brought in their car to have a real TIAL bov put in to replace their eBay unit that was staying open causing their car to die on them. We pulled it apart after we got it out and this is what we found.


Bent up clamp and rust on the bolts and fitting


Yep, a chip and a crack, very nice parts...

Close up of the crack

The spring has been ground down.

i'm surprised that kit is still in 1 piece!!it was a bandaid fix at the time when my motor was out of the car! of course eBay can not compare to name brand , in terms of quality lol..... 12k dd boosting everyday i'm not surprised. i thought the kit was going to break at 5k miles lol...

funny thing is i would SMOKE every poster above me except the op lol.

It did start breaking at 5k miles, thats when your oil leak started happening isnt it? hahaha. Or was that then your original XS Power Brrrritz BOV welded shut on you. Two BOVs in 1 year has to be a record.

the bliz bov was a real one , the one that came with the kit we never put on because it was DOA lol...

like i said, if i was building a 800 hp supra i wouldnt use ebay parts period, it was a bandaid mod to get my car back on the road , when things start to break i will replace them with better parts.
