If it where around $120 or less (using my own HKS BOV) I would probably jump for it. I generally have no idea how long I will use something since I like to play with things so I have to be cautious Hell, in a week to 4 weeks I could be in an RD R4 IC for all I know.

I've been looking at the 4 current BOV 4 set ups that have been done. Yours is the nicest i've seen yet. But, also the most expensive up front.
HKS BOV: $220
HKS Flange: $20
The other option i've seen is a more butchered approach, but effective.
HKS 60mm 90* bend pipe $40
HKS BOV/w flange $236 shipped on ebay(same price as yours)
Flange welded to pipe $25(estimate)
Cut stock hose to make connections...Free
upgraded T-bolt clamps like you have $25
$160 difference....But wait!!! there's a catch
The factory hose you're cutting retails for $230. The cheapest i've seen it online is $167. So if you ever plan to go back to stock. A new hose is going to cost you what you saved now.
So i guess you could either let the BOV go with the ski if you trade or sell it. Or, buy a new stock hose and hope to sell the BOV and pipe and recover the $160 for the new hose.
Or go with your setup now and at trade in or sale, put the factory hose back on and sell your set up for $350-400 used to recoup the money.
For the budget minded now, the butchered way is more feasible.
For the long term value and the nicer set-up. Yours is the way to go.
So, I would be interested to see if you could have more made up and the cost.
Sorry for the long post, but couldn't explain in less words.
