Hey guys, I just sent my ecu off to GS to get stage one tune and was wondering if the stock BOV will hold the pressure or do I need to get a new one?

You really only need to upgrade if your stock one is making a honking sound under pressure. Otherwise it should be alright, especially if just stage 1

I've seen 16.5 (17 before minor mods+ FMIC) and the factory T5 one worked fine. Pretty sure it's somewhere in the mid 20's when they need replaced/upgraded, but don't quote me. Think the T7's have a better spring, but I'm not positive and haven't tested a spare one I picked up yet.

Yeah just wait and see how it goes. It really just depends on if it holds up to what you throw at it. You can pick up a Forge unit for pretty cheap, used. I bought mine used 6 years ago and it handles whatever I throw at it. The whoosh sound is always a nice addition, of course.
