I have the synapse and its amazing. I love the sound and it performs really well. I'm not sure there is too much of a difference besides price. It is awesome quality though. This is a vid my friend took and she only had her camera at night.

yeah the only reason why im thinking about selling my SFR bov is sometimes when im quick off the gas, its loses boost because it doesn't close fats enough so i have to like feather it before it closes. and i like the way the synapse was made. saw the vid from their youtube channel and how it works while the engine is off. how much did it cost you with pipe?

Compairing SFR to Synapse is like compairing A day kicking it with David Hasslhoff vs Having sex with Jeri Lee.

Message the vendor [email protected]&M. He will get you the best pricing on this kit. It is higher up, but I noticed a big difference in boost being held. I felt like my car had a bit more torque because boost wasn't being lost. It also comes with a block off plate.

I'f highly recommend this product.

+1 on the Synapse Engineering BOV/pipe kit, call Tom @ G&M or PM him, he has the best price on it. The Synapse BOV does hold boost better because it opens and shuts faster than any other valve, and best of all it runs quick enough to keep up with the ECU, so you retain full safety features.

That video you watched was my car :p

First of all, BOV that we sell are not made by us so it shouldn't be called "SFR BOV" maybe i could .. i don't know :)

Second, this manufacture of BOV that we sell is the one that was flamed by copying Synapse BOV and made exact or even better( by using improved seals and etc) BOV and supposely these BOV that we are selling are the basically the same thing but smaller and better.

I am not saying that BOV that we sell are any better than Synapse BOV since again we did not manufacture that product nor we like to encourage another manufacture copying other company's creation.
We are also a dealer of Synapse Engineering.
But just wanted to clairfy few things just because this manufacture of BOV is just less known than the other company does not mean known company's products are always better.

I guarantee you any knock off product out of Korea can in no way compare to the genuine item. Jay, the valve pictures you posted were near exact imitations of the SB001 Synchronic blow off valve. Some people apparently don't do trademarks or patents I guess...

You can't "improve" on the Synchronic design, it's a proprietary design that is already maximized. The only way it performs faster/better is when a computer is operating it with good software behind it.

I got my Synapse BOV by itself from Vibrant Performance for under $200 shipped. ;)

What? even the GB price here is $380??
That's for the kit, pipe & all.....I got just the BOV since I'm mounting it on my FMIC cold pipe, thus don't need the rest of the kit. ;)
