    Quote on Ebay:

    "This BOV is off of an SR20DET. Some people say this BOV will hold 20 psi, but I never boosted over 13 psi. This would be a great BOV for anyone trying to piece together a turbo kit. Also has the same mounting flange as a 1G DSM, so it could be used as an upgrade for a 2G DSM."

    Is this true?

    and was looking at the new Nissan R35 and saw the BOV. At first, I told myself, "Hey that looks like my 1g BOV.." And as I looked closer, I saw the Mitsubishi emblem stamped on the side of it!

    Am I wrong and blind :tease: or am I right and cool to have our bad ass BOV on a bad ass car? :sneaky:

    That would be sick.

    A friend of mine got to see a GT-R up close and personal and it had BOV that look like 1G ones and have the mitsu emblem on them as well.

    I saw the same thing, does anyone want to look up the part number to make sure, or did mitsu create a new "part" for the r35/skyline/gtr wutever the #### they are calling it these days.

    I could have sworn this was talked about months ago. Maybe it was on a different forum.

    I think since the R32, they've used 1g style BOVs.
