Would you recommend it for a 1g? I've been looking into it for a while and what everything that I've seen.. I like... What do you think, and is there any special things wrong with it that you've heard of or seen?

I'm guessing you mean the BOV... is your stock 1g BOV leaking?

No. I would never recommend a $420 blow off valve. :chair:

Is it a $420 blow off valve because you would have to be smoking PCP laced pot to pay that much?

OP, Buy a Synapse and be done with it.

If it is $420 its because it has a sound adjuster, why do you recommend the Synapse?

Synapse is quick acting, large valve diameter, and able to be recirculated. It would get my money if I still owned a turbo car.

And no, the car I am buying does not have a bov on it yet and I'm looking into the best one I can get :D

What car will this be going on then?

12-23-2008, 07:08 AM
A 92' Eagle Talon AWD Tsi

Buddy, a BOV is not really a good first mod, especially for a 1g.

If I could steer you in the right direction, check out the link in my signature. Also, take the time to read the links posted by 'i need a dsm.' It may take a while to read but trust me buddy, the knowledge you gain in a couple of hours has been compiled over the last 18 years.

If you have any questions about anything feel free to pm me (or most people on the board) and I'll be more than happy to help you out.

EDIT: Oh yeah.... Just because something is the most expensive or a name brand doesn't mean it's the best product. I wouldn't even get a Synapse yet to be honest, try and find a used 1g BOV (if you don't have one already). Like I said, if you want you can PM me before you buy anything and I'll try to let you know if it's reasonable or not.

The car has a stock BoV, and it already has mods on it. Not a BoV yet though. So thats why I was looking into it.
