Xs power holding up well?

Based on this thread, I bought an XS power BOV.
I haven't completed the install yet because the V-band clamp that came with the BOV wasn't sealing properly and I was able to rock the valve up & down about 1/32". Ordered a Tial clamp @ nearly the same price as the BOV.
I'll post an update when I'm back on the road.

JnJ - did you take out your power steering reservoir to make the CP fit your e60?

E60 Tip - un bolt your PS reservoir per these instructions: http://bd8ba3c866c8cbc330ab-7b26c6f3...on_Revised.pdf

It takes 1 minute & makes install much easier.

Bumping this since I got a VRSF 7" intercooler from a local member for $300, but now I'm looking at charge ***** and a BOV for the GF's 08 535xiT without paying big name prices. I know Evan went with ER charge pipe ($350) and Tial BOV ($200), but local N54 members said I should look at VRSF CP's ($180) and a knockoff HKS BOV called Dewhel which supposedly has good reviews on Amazon. I know I have to take everything with a grain of salt when comparing 135/335 parts fitment onto a 535, but it seems everything gets more expensive for the E61 AWD for what could only be a fractional difference in fitment without paying the E61 specific prices.

You can get away with a VRSF CP with a BOV fitting, but do yourself a favor and get a legit BOV. Do it right or do it twice. I've read too many times people buying knock off BOV's just to have to buy a legit one months later.

Fair enough, I've written Evan directly as to why he choose the ER CP vs others like VRSF or Boost Monkey that are half the price. Real BOV it is.

For me, I run DV’s and the 535(I & X) have a different diverter valve location than any of the other N54’s. ER had the correct location for the valves without having to fabricate a way around the power steering res. Plus I liked the way it tapers and matches up with the ER FMIC piping.

Since you are going with a BOV, you have a few more options as long as the BOV does not contact the power steering res. This will more than likely be the reason why to go with ER or VRSF, but I can’t say for sure which others may or may not have this problem. I’m sure Evan can chime in on the CP/BOV front.

I use boost monkey pipe and it's fine. I plan on going to an ER charge pipe. I tried the Amazon knockoff and it was garbage. I also fit an e90 rev9 on my 535i. Going to replace that with a psp 900ic.
