Wow, that really sucks. Do you know where it is coming from? I guess you were right, you get what you pay for.
Im sure the big tom intercooler will be better. Do you just plan on selling that one? And how hard was the ******** BOV install? Im kind of confused about installing the BOV because there is not a single synapse DIY. Maybe I will make one or something, if its not too hard.

I found the leak and it is fixed, and yes now there is MORE power. I am running the stock intercooler but my new IC has already shipped out. It was so easy changing the intercooler, took me 20 min. I am hoping I can return it, I called them and they said if the picture I took tells the truth then they will give me a refund, so we will see. Should hear back from them tomorrow.

Installing the BOV is really easy you just have to be careful when putting on the vacuum lines. And getting the IC pipe to line up is a little bit of a bitch but you'll get it. I looked up the synapse install on their site, they have their own forum that shows how to hook it up.

Oh cool, mind sharing the link if you have it saved? At this point, I only know not to use port C. Its hard to look stuff up on iphones. And did you go with the big tom style IC? Hopefully you wont have to trim much, because the trimming for HPF SUCKED.

EDIT: found it

Todd, here is a DIY. You cant see where the vacuum lines are really going that well, but it might help a little.
1.Take the vacuum line that goes to the factory bypass valves

2. T the above mentioned line out to two lines and attach them to the two ports in the back of the Synapse BOV

3. leave the other nipple on the Synapse BOV alone

http://www.socaleuro.com/forum/showt...-valve-install


Also, I just came across something funny. Im sure you know synapse says there is no filter required. But I am reading the synapse tuning manual and found this:

IV. FILTERING THE INLET

a. If you do not plan on recirculating the discharge of the BOV back
after an air filter, or after the MAF, it is highly recommended that you
filter the inlet of the BOV.

b. One choice would be to purchase a small filter, such as a K&N,
with a 1.25” inlet.

c. Another alternative would be to sandwich thin foam between the
Recirculation Fitting (1) and the BOV’s housing.


Are you going to filter yours? I am probably going to just leave it alone.
