So I have a '17 ES with a Sxth Short Ram intake (factory BOV recirculation hose deleted) along with a JUN B.L titanium axel back exhaust and I'm loving the setup. Didn't feel much power gain from the intake but it looks nice and sounds pretty cool. Thoughts on switching out the factory BOV for the HKS? I have the Sxth adapter flange to install the HKS. Is it worth it? The car sounds pretty nice as is, does anyone have this setup and how do you like it?

Is there any more stress added to the motor with the HKS?

The stock plastic bypass valve isn't great, can fail rather easily. Any aftermarket BOV will last longer, hold boost better and improve throttle response.

Personally I am not a fan of super loud BOV's so I have the GFB Mach 2 recirculating into my SXTH intake. I can still hear it just fine and it's not over powering.
