    I did some research on that BOV last summer. If you go to the HKS site you'll find they discontinued the model in black (only), about a year ago. That's why the black ones are available discounted on eBay and other online vendors. Searching some other online forums I found that consensus was that black was discontinued because the finish on the mating surface of the flange was very prone to wear, sometimes resulting in boost leak. Apparently the fix is simple: prior to installing, remove the black finish from the mating surface using a solvent such as goof-off or acetone and some elbow grease. According to what I read, there's no need to sand or grind. It will come off completely with only solvent.
