When I bought my 91 Plymouth Laser 5spd Turbo the previous owner gave me a Bov to go with it but I'm sceptical because: 1. I don't know if it will work properly with my car as it is stock, 2. No make or model was ever specified to me about the Bov and there are no markings on it at all. If anyone can help on either of these questions thanks alot. I'm curious and anxious to know the answers.

Thats a knockoff Greddy type RS. It will work fine IF you but a recirculating kit for it. You can get that from most of the vendors on here.

I have to agree with Rob. It is a knock off Greddy.

Use it if you must, but replace it as soon as possible.

Glad to hear it.

Don't forget to recirculate it either.

Well now that I know it's a knock off I'm debating just getting rid of it. Honestly I'm thinking why should a spend money on this recirc kit if I'm gonna have to upgrade it eventually anyways. Too bad the guy that gave it to me spent a hundred bucks on it, oh well his loss.

Get rid of it! Get a real Greddy Type S or a Type RS with a recirculation kit.

I had a Ebay knockoff type S on my car for 2 years before the diaphragm finally blew out. They work but won't last like a real Greddy. Taking them apart they are almost identical besides the diaphragm and o-ring seal are beefier on the real one. I have a real Greddy RS recirculated right now.
