Well, another lesson learned.
Things you buy on eBay is always hit/miss.

I picked up a genuine HKS SSQV Blowoff Valve on eBay for a great price, it is the earlier model as this one still has the adjustment screw on vacuum port side. However, when I went to install the recirculation port, I noticed the small relief valve's rubber seal had a tear in it. Needless to say, this puppy will not hold boost pressure. Heck, it won't hold me blowing into it for long. :(

Question, since I could not find this even on HKS web site, anyone know if any rebuild parts are available for this BOV. If not, it will become a paperweight. :tear:

Thanks guys / gals...

how bad is the tear? usually a combination of teflon tape(plumbers tape) and super glue works.

Pretty bad, some of the rubber on the circular part is missing.
Here is a diagram of where it is.
