Wondering if this has happened to any one else?[/b]
There've been a few reportings of BOV breaking, most I have seen have been exposing the spring. This is the first I've seen break there.

Just got mine back from the shop. I got a lean at idle error code and they said it was the BOV leaking. I supposedly have the latest design now.

I will say that it peaks at 19 a bit easier and holds 16 occasiioonally where it rarely hit 19 before and never held more than 15.

Oh yeah, it makes a slightly louder pshhhh sound!

Sorry I did not clarify the situation, just happened a few minutes ago. This is my HKS SSQV, I was in the process of putting it in the adaptor flange, put the c clip inpushed down on the valve tring to get the clip to lock in to the groove and bang it breaks.

That would have been nice to have known. So its the HKS that broke not a Mazda part?
