My friend has a GFB BOV that he bought from ralitek. He was told that it can hurt his car and now wants to buy the Perrin full recirc BOV. Should i buy his BOV off of him? Or should i go for the perrin one also?

not at all, you can do full vent and not loose power.
Hybrids are really good, one of the best IMHO well made give you a bit of noise while maintaining some recirc for EM.

you won't lose any power with a full vent, but when you let off the throttle (when the bov is venting), it can make the engine run very rich for a brief time.

Our stock BOV or Bypass valve is 50/50. It's the best way to do it so you keep the A/F ratios in check. I had a GFB Hybrid on MY02 running 50/50 and loved it!

Not sure about yours but my blow off valve is full recirc from factory.
But yes 50/50 is fine with your EMS and as stated before a fully vented one might push it a little rich but you wouldn't be able to tell, at the most a little pop on down changes.

If you have to hear it... IMO the lesser of evils is the 50/50

08 is 100% recirculating

50/50 is good

100% vent-to-atmosphere will sound cool but screw stuff up eventually, save it for your honda

If the only reason you are buying it is to get the sound...get a RalliTEK CAI. You hear the turbo spooling and the stock bypass valve sounds super sick! Sounds like it is vented to the atmosphere. Just my $0.02.
