BOV opinions

Ok, so looking to buy bov in the near future for my turbo build. Was looking at the greddy type rs but have no idea what brands are good/bad. Im only shooting for ~8psi and ~200whp on budget build. What would you guys recommend/what do you think of the greddy type rs?

Thanks!

I've got the HKS SSQ and I love it. I like how it sounds (it kind of flutters) and have had no problems with it thus far.

I would go with the turbo xs rfl (real fu**ing loud) it sounds really good on low boost and has a lower woooshing sound not high pitched like an hks ssq. Oh, and they are cheap you can find them for about 120-130 for the real deal not some chinese knock off!

Beware of ebay chinese knock off bov and wasegates! I know a guy who had one of the wastegates (against my advise) and it failed causing him to over boost to like 25 psi! and pop his integra motor!
