AVOID THIS BLOW OFF VALVE

Fitted an XS POWER BOV to my wrx. see attached pic to identify.

I sourced this from US via eBay. It lasted 2 days befor this happened to the internal spring which pushes the diaphragm up and down...again check out next pic

So to sum up AVOID THE XS POWER DUMP VALVE.

Now i have my emission warning light on, and been warned by Subaru to take it easy until Saturday ( day of service )
