Rdash bov charge pipe?

I been looking into this Rdash charge pipe kit but cant find too much info about it. For the price its pretty good and sounds decent. Anybody have any experience with this kit? any feedback will be apreciated. Im just wondering if this will fit with injen intakes.

It looks pretty cheap to me, but that doesn't it doesn't work. I'd just be worried about it creating a potential for a boost leak. The BOV is no name(literally) so thats another point of concern. Id just spend the extra $ and get a reputable setup.

Looks like the ****** to me... Just save a little more or get a used BOV with a better name just in case of boost leaks. To be honest id go with Tial or Synapse.

If u want to run an injen intake u want the bov closest to firewall. I believe the er chargepipe might work with the injen intake

That charge pipe looks like its made of cheddar. Id go with a better make. That silicone joiner looks like it'll pop off in a few good pulls.

Someone just posted about this recently, they use a knock off HKS bov in that kit which I'd be incredibly weary of and quite honestly I'm surprised ECS would sell.

The TMAP sensor bung is too large and you have to use an adapter for that knock off BOV to fit which means you have one more opportunity for a boost leak.

Its made out of the same thing everybody else's and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it EXCEPT the knock off HKS BOV which are known to fail and the C-clip, which like all C clips that come with knock off HKS valves is a crappy one. The only thing you need to make this serviceable is buy a real HKS valve at which point it cost the same as everybody else's (because it then is like everybody elses). Its a pipe not a valvetrain set

Kind of confused why you would consider it.
It is not popular (i personally have never heard of it) and it costs more than the ER,VRSF Charge pipes

Now i understand why you are considering it.
It looks cheap though.
