Out of the three options that come with the er charge pipe:

1. Tial
2. Synapse
3. HKS

Which one is the best/what are the differences?

They're all high quality options, Tial seems to be the most popular brand, but I don't think any option is objectively superior to the other. The HKS is very loud and obvious, the Synapse in the middle, and the Tial pretty quiet (relatively speaking). I went with synapse because I love the various induction and spooling sounds, but the HKS boarders on obnoxious.

HKS is loud, really loud. I like my synapse but I wish it were a bit louder. If you drive without the cowl it's perfect at 14psi+

I have er chargepipe with hks bov.It sounds great but you will have to get a thicker o ring for the flange because the oem hks one is not big enough for the er chargepipe.I have an extra you could have if you go that route.

HKS is pretty loud, this is mine:


It's only being revved to about 4,800 RPM, and it's even louder when you're actually driving.

It's not so loud if you're just driving normally, but if you're driving spiritedly, it's loud enough to hear with your windows up. I had a friend in the car who asked about how a turbo felt when pushing it, so I did, and she complained about the "breathing" sound startling her. That was with the windows up.

When I was getting the BoV from ER, they told me that Tial is the more popular choice for its subtlety.

ER with the forge dv set up is dope. Quiet as hell. Car sounds super sleeper when shifting... But when u r running full catless there isn't much sleeper about the setup.

The synapse is the better valve because it has a piston type bov. The others are a diaphragm type bov. A diaphragm type valve reacts slower because of the stretch of the rubber. watch the video and it will explain.

I was originally going with the Tial, but I think I got sold on the Synapse. It looks to be just a solid design without the leaks you get from diaphragm BOVs. I just have to find one locally.
