wastegate/BOV prices....

About to get Tom's DIY kit and would like to know an average price of a Turbonetics Evo wastegate and Greddy BOV (Tom's preferance) that I should be looking for. Im new to FI, so anyones help would be great!! Also, are these components safe to buy used?


Ive looked around and have seen WG's for around 300 give or take 20 bucks, and BOV's for 150-250 (not including the greddy knock off)

what kind of greddy are you getting?

the greddy type s was crap. the internal diaphram broke on a lot of them. the type rs is pretty good though.

and the greddy knock off type s bov arent bad. i have an ngr type s (much better internal diaphram than the greddy) and its worked great for me for hte past 6 months or so.

I've ran the GReddy Type S for 4 years of being boosted at 300whp and I've never had the first bit of trouble from it.

I have sold or installed or tuned at least 150 type-s and never see any issues with them

I use the type-rs knock off there about 35.00 on ebay and have used or sold about 50 of them with no issues yet

The EVO is costly but the WG I have had the least issues with , they are on ebay now and then for 185 to 225 new

Yeah I saw the EVO's on ebay... figure its a important component, dont really wanna go cheap on that one. Saw the Greddy's too, believe it or not, I dont think I saw any "knock offs", there were plenty of (bad) advertisements about them though in listings themselves!!

Oh a guy that works for me told me to go greddy, Tom mentioned it also in an email. Im pretty much just going with what experienced folk have used, since I have NO experience in FI.

Thanks for the imput guys

i have used the knock off gready rs for about 3 years. no problem even running 24psi though it for a year of that.

i also used the evo wg. very nice peace. never had any trouble. great control no matter what level of power i was running.

my friend recently bought a knock off type s for his sonoma. seems to have quit a bit of trouble out of it actually. may have just got a lemon though.

for my turbo v8 i am going to using a large tial wg (got one for a great price). and a knock off ssqv (originally bought for sti, decided to stick with recirculation on it for now). i'll see how these work.

the AEM True Boost gauge/boost controller and the AEM UEGO GAUGE WIDEBAND O2 CONTROLLER KIT look pretty nice, and seem to cover everything. I dont like gauges everywhere blinding me while im driving.
