A BOv is a life saver to a Turbo. Every time you let off the gas peddle after boosting, without a BOV, it surges the compressor. This leads to premature bearing and seal failure at stock boost levels, and even worse on raised levels.
Any universal BOV should work, with a little fabricating needed. Ebay and any JEGS both have good prices on them. Or, get a 1st gen Talon stock BOV from a junkyard. They are an incredible piece, and used on numerous custom turbo systems. Make sure to get teh metal pipe it blts to, as you'll need the flange for the install. About $25 at most bone yards.
