Although not exactly on topic, thought this PDF might be helpful to those considering intalling the Mopar BOV which, for the money, is probably the best buy available, from all I have read.

Ive got the TurboXS RFL installed in the stock UCP and tapped into the TB.
6 washers, doesnt seem to leak like some others with RFLs.
Got it from AGP turbo, with the connector pipe and block off plate.
Had pics, but my Cardomain site got screwed up - all the pictures are gone!!
On this site my sig and link are gone too...

Email me if you want the pics.

The reason I want away from the MOPAR is I dont think is up to the task With a Greddy B II and turbochargers.com waste gate. I have BOP on its way and will have a Mopar BOV for sale as soon as I sort this out.

I would be interested in the details on this, Rob. I had only seen a site that said to install this unit in the pipe that runs under the engine, which makes lubing it and keeping it clean hard at best.

What kind of boost do you want to run? The mopar should be fine to handle 16-18 psi Id think...Youre worried about leakage right?

Just thinking the cost of the pipes + the BOV could get a little pricey for only a little better performance-wise.

Now if you're looking for a cooler sound...thats a different story. Anything is better than our "sneeze."

LAF -
An aftermarket BOV will hold more boost.
Rice_Killing_GT has the Turbochargers.com WGA with Mopar BOV -

Part throttle (3-3.5k) boost is around 7psi with no surge. I'm putting the stock airbox back on, it's just too loud and gonna put an HKS Bov on the Mopar one is just one loud pppppppppsssssssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I swear it last that long sometimes, it's annoying.
I had the same until I added all 6 washers to the RFL BOV. Now only blows off over 5-6lbs.
BTW I also have the Turbochargers.com WGA.

TripleJack - my RFL is installed on the cold side, like where Mean Green has his HKS.
Doesnt get wet or dirty in this location. Has not required any lube yet.
I believe you are correct, though, on the hot side, under the engine would probably be better.
Best place is as close to the turbo as possible.

Edit - Heres mine -
