Thanks to Darden, Nick & Peter @ Synapse. They were able to develop a bolt on BOV kit for our VT's & they installed and Dyno'd yesterday. They stated they would post up the results & videos on their page shortly; so make sure to check it out for all the details!

But I couldn't wait, so I took pics and video myself! The video doesn't do it justice, the sound is AMAZING! I instantly noticed the difference in HP, but maybe that's just me cause I drive it everyday.

nice! BOV wont add hp, epecially without boost hack, however, it can help boost build up better due to much better construction and resistance to opening under boost.

They're still working out pricing, this is the first kit to come out. They used my car to fabricate it. I should be able to get pricing for it shortly or I'll post up the link when it's on their website.

Stock location or is it replacing the cold pipe?
see pics.. it replaces the cold pipe.

I am assuming they did a block off plate for the stock BOV?

judging by their pics online, it almost looks pretttty darn close to the genesis coupe kit (looks like one end is cut down) and would use the same block-off plate. In this case, prices at 369.00$

less than 150$ more and you are in full FMIC kit territory.

Since it is hooked to the stock solenoid 100%, shouldn't have a chance of setting the CEL.

Synapse wont set off the CEL with mechanical boost either. I have a couple people running it that way with FMIC and both no CELs.

Yeah if it comes in at 369$ I will be going with the Turbosmart xs bov. I don't plan on upgrading the intercooler unless Tork comes out with a baller stock location replacement.
