I would get a new OE BPV.  I have a fancy shmancy aluminum one on one of
my cars - waste of $$$.  You would need to burn through 4 or 5 stock
Bosch ones to equal cost of the fancy ones....

A lot guys are going with the Bosch with p/n suffix 710N FWIW.  They are
about $40.

So, the beauty of chipping the beast is that every weak link possible
will fail. (less than a week with the chips now) spent the last six
months sorting the car out, feel like I'm starting over!

Drove about 200 miles today. Of course as soon as I left home started
hearing a moaning noise(no, she worked today)that appeared at boost and
would diminish eventually. With my luck I started trying to guess worse
case scenario. (it can only get better from there, no?) I finally
decided it was the rear main seal. Lovely thing about driving, lots of
time to become paranoid!

No, the noise didn't get worse... but I can still hear it car has been
shut off for a half hour now!

So, question is.....Suggestions for an inexpensive replacement? Have
seen some different messages with different ideas, but will ask again.
I'm a little leery of replacing with a used stock as I could end up in
the same place with increased boost...

Thoughts, BTDT?
