Default What kind of blow off valve is this?

I just bought this off a forum member and I was told it was a turbo xs bov, but I can't find one that looks like this on turbo xs' site. I'm just curious to know what it is. Thanks.

Looks like a TurboXS BOV to me.

looks like an older TurboXS dual port... Lots of knock offs out there though, dunno where you'd look to identify it as genuine.

Here's another question. Since this bov has the recirc valve and the little open cone side, is it a hybrid bov? If it is, am I going to be running rich since it's technically releasing some air back to the atmosphere, or it be closed loop enough to be alright? I should be getting an aem wideband soon, but for now I won't know what my afr is.

Well if it is partially open loop, then it will have the effect of an open loop BOV to the extent that it is one.

Yeah, that's kinda what I thought. I just wanted to see what others would say. Thanks for the input Lawdogg.

Yeah I never really understood those partial open loop BOVs ... maybe they are made to be not quite as bad as full open loop but louder than closed loop? I dunno! When you run it, let us know how it goes ...

I have it on there right now, and it definitely sounds cool. Louder than the recirculating type h34 turbo xs bov that I have. I plan on swapping the h34 in if someone gives me a good reason not to run this hybrid one I have now. If nobody thinks there's really any issues with it, then I'll probably just keep it on since it sounds cool.
