    Yes three years and counting zero problems. A regulator is not rocket science it a diaphragm and a spring no more no less.

    I read somewhere that the regulator has to be placed in a certain orientation so that the spring does not rust. Do you know if this is correct or not?

    If you were concerned with the quality of the no name eBay regs, you could go for an AEM or Turbosmart or something along them lines. I picked up my Turbosmart fpr 800 from a forum member for about $100. But as BD said, many have used the cheapo's with no issues.

    Yes you want the boost line fitting facing down so the spring housing does not fill with moisture this is true with any brand regulator as the spring is made of steel. I like to coat the spring with grease to help with corrosion.
