i had the AA kit and it was whatever, sound was non existent under normal driving conditions, it gave me some check engine errors cause of a boost leak. decided to remove it and sell it as it wasn't benefitting my car on any way.

hope that helps

I have ETS chargepipe with Synapse BOV sounds great to me. Never had any codes mainly bcz this chargepipe does not use the OEM style flimsy clip to hold the chargepipe to the throttle body. The only reason you would have any type of code come up is its leaking boost somewhere.

Flimsy clip? That clip is much more unlikely to blow off than a silicone/tbolt connection

+1 the weakness of the OEM CP are the diaphragm diverter valves that are prone to leaking.

CP came off twice on mine and twice on my friends with two different cars, so from my experience flimsy. The t-bolt clamp I have 100% secure you could not pull it off if you wanted to.

Again this is my experience, yours might be different.
