Looking @ his feedback there were a few sold and comments said 'authentic'...

I'd say no.

The page never once claims it's the real deal. Nothing says Authentic. The feedback says things like seems legit by people fairly new to eBay.

Unless there is a claim on the page that says it is the authentic, real deal, then it is likely a counterfeit. Under eBay guidelines, anything stating one thing, that isn't true, means you can have them banned, penalized or any item returned.

You get what you pay for, I'd say move on.

The part number matches up and if it comes in the box and has the hks stamp i think its probably real

Yeah, i'll prolly pass :(

I'm at a loss of how to install the st215's stock bpv into my system. I know the logistics, just can't figure it out. An aftermarket BOV will make it easy to install.

bzdweezy..have you seen the sheer # of HKS knock offs? They're like the #1 bov being forged (them & greddy, but HKS fakes are pretty damn good).

Check out what HKS has to say about it: http://www.hksusa.com/info/?id=3646

I'd say it's probably a really good fake, but still fake.

I've been pouring between HKS pics and theirs and honestly can't figure it out.. lmao. Most likely it is a fake though, a damn good one.

I just looked at the link that celicasilfee posted and that is insane, I've always like the hks sound but i like the way my forge bov sounds plus its louder i think lol. But after looking over the link I'd pass as well.

Definitely fake. The sheer quantity of lookalikes out there was reason alone for me to not consider buying an HKS. Went with TiAL since the fakes are a bit easier to identify.

Check out the pics in my build thread im using the stock Caldina BOV. Works great and its loud even when circulated back into the intake.

fake or not, who cares? if it works as advertised I really couldnt give a shit less if its make by HKS (overpriced to begin with) or a chinese duplicator. I ran a knockoff and I loved it.

(its not like either of them are made in the USA so...meh)
