The only one that will fit and it's a tight fit is the TurboXS SML BOV. It really is up to you if you want to upgrade it now or not. If your doing a fmic in the near near future then wait. If your not then this would be a good thing to do. When I installed mine I felt it held boost way better and the sound is really nice and clean. The main reason to replace it is because the stock one is prone to getting tears in the rubber

I really hope 6th starts production on FMICs before christmas! My bonus is reserved solely for that and a bov.

I would wait then if you want the FMIC. I will be doing one soon and I will have my TurboXS up for sale when I finish the install

I agree with Forte5.
Unless your factory one is leaking boost pressure, there is no need to upgrade unless you want a different sound.

Our FMIC kits will come with BOV replacement, and maybe I will offer different ones. Still not sure on that yet though.
I can say I think this weekend is prototype install weekend, so I'll have updates for everyone very soon.

Like others have said, I would definitely stick it out and wait. I installed my SRI from 6th Element, and just had the previous recirculated BOV atmosphered into my engine bay, still sounds nice, and turns many heads when I drive by. Had a guy ask me if It was really a Kia haha
