i know two people with this.
and yes.
limps on occasion
I wouldnt recommend it. Vents a lot of air even in non boost throttle lift.
The adjustable hybrids that NDauto sells are a hell of a lot better.

Re: ECS tunning BOV KIT. WORKS.......? (wickett.)

ugh...Check this...
HKS SSQV (from edoperformance.com) - $182 + $0 shipping
ATP HKS SSQV Flange - $35 + $9.36 shipping
HKS Recirculation fitting (from OverboostStore) - $10.08 + $7.11 shipping
Hose clamps (local hardware store) - $5.00 or less
1/8" & 1" hose couplers (local hardware store) - $5.00 or less
12" of 1/8" vaccuum (local hardware store) - $5.00 or less
OEM VW Recirc hose (Reused) - free
OEM VW Charge pipe (Reused) - free
I put this together a while ago. It will fit ANY transverse 1.8t, and includes everything from the "kit", except the charge pipe and recirc hose which do NOT need to be replaced.
Total cost for everything...less than $260. Why would u spend $320 for something u can put together for $60 less? BTW, this will work perfectly, no limp.

Man another BOV thread...
Anyways, yes it works on some cars, it works on mine, I have never hit limp with it, I put down 213whp/ 237ftlbs with it.
If you buy it, get the recirc kit, just in case it doesn't work properly on your car.

Re: (wickett.)

The ECS kit works for some not for others. IMO, you're 100x better off, buying the individual parts I listed. Its cheaper in the long run (by a lot too) and will not cause ANY adverse effects like some people experience with the ECS kit. Also, VTA BOVs, even if they don't cause the problems inherent with running a valve VTA, you still lose air in the system. Recirculating a valve promotes the best response between shifts.

Most BOV kits in reciculating mode will operate a lot longer than a standard piston valve.
Better construction, and in some cases less mechanical action. Depends on the design of the valve really.
