My BOV is leaking - for now I've just blocked off the vacuum line so I've got decent vacuum at idle, (apc gauge now almost horizontal). Any sugestions for a replacement? Should I just get another saab one or would an atmospheric jobbie be a better bet?

I presume it's OK to run the car with the bypass bypassed (it was shot anyway), or will I damage something? Car seems to be boosting fine.....

An atmospheric one actually has very little benefit apart from the noise, if you like that sort of thing. In fact there is a school of thought that it just messes up fuelling (closes can of worms sharply ;) ). Forge make very good quality ones (not cheap though), and they also do a recirculating one that is much more durable than the stock plastic affair.
