    Black is just a coating on the valve

    Its made out of very easily breakable material... i found that out while installing it on my Riva power cooler. 2nd one took me an hour to install,... slowly and cautiously!

    If you're wondering why the black HKS BOV is less expensive, it's because it was discontinued by HKS a couple of years ago. Consensus on some of the automotive boards was that the black paint finish, which also covers the mating surface of the flange, interfered with the valve properly seating. If you go with the black BOV, just use a solvent to clean the black paint off the mating surface prior to installation. It comes right off, no sanding necessary.

    I got it from Jerry and he told me they're only coming in black now.
