Default <<<Important BOV info>>>

Driving home yesterday, my BOV seized (sp?). Apparently the piston had lost it's lubricant. Upon inspection of the piston i noticed scratches in line with the movement of the piston. Now, my BOV has only been on for just over 2 weeks. From now on i'm gonna check the lube once a week to make sure it's running smooth.
So for all those guys running BOV's run and check them NOW, before it gives out on you while your driving!! Because if you don't and you have the stock surge valve disabled, your liable to do damage.
