For street driving, I think the valve works really well out of the box. I drove fro 2 weels of street driving, and didn't have any issues. I have said the same thing regarding my TiAL QR. IMO, street driving is still not a good way of testing to make sure a part works that way it is designed to.

What do you guys think is making the flutter- BOV, wastegate, or compressor surge?

I know I need to retune the car because I'm quite certain now that my old BOV was leaking. I just wanted to get some input on what could be causing the flutter before I tackle the retune.

Update:

So I went and did some tuning this morning and managed to solve the flutter issue. I pretty much found out that 95% of the drivability and tuning issues I was having were related to my old BOV. Without getting into too much detail, some of my boost settings were kinda wacked out because the old BOV didn't want to hold boost after it hit 25 psi and it also wasn't reacting and closing fast enough after I would push the clutch in. The last time I was at the track it seriously felt like my clutch was slipping because in between shifts I don't think the old BOV was closing properly and the car just wouldn't really pull after shifting gears at WOT. Now when I shift gears at WOT... It feels like I'm being punched in the chest!!! Boost comes on almost instantly once I let the clutch out and punch the gas, and the thing pulls like crazy!!!

Bottomline... The Synapse DV is awesome!!! I wish I would have bought one of these a year ago. Drivability is better than either one of the stock 9 BOVs I've used and obviously the Synapse holds boost much better as well.

So for anyone who cares, here's what I did in regards to the tune. (This is the Reader's Digest version):
  1. I tried lowering the WGDC to 50 from about 4000 up. This would only give me a peak boost of about 17psi and I was still getting the flutter after about 4500.
  2. Made some changes to the Boost Adder tables (which were out of whack because of the old, leaking BOV) and zeroed out the Boost Error Correction tables. This seemed to solve the flutter issue whenever I would hit peak boost.
  3. Starting raising the WGDC back up until I was hitting my previous peak target of 25psi. I ended up running almost the same WGDC in the mid RPMs (4500-6000) as before, but about 10% less WGDC after 6000 in order to hit the same boost at 7000 (about 22psi)
I still have some fine tuning to do in regards to my target boost tables and the BEC tables but hopefully once I get the target boost tables figured out I won't have an issue with the BEC causing the fluttering anymore.

Very nice Ian0611, glad adjusting the WGDC worked out for you and your getting punched in the chest with boost now, haha...

Mind you, I have the TiAL flange setup, and the bov is mounted directly to the uicp, and not the intake pipe like most stock configurations. During the testing, I ran into the same partial throttle issues I did with the TiAL. However, I started playing with the preload adjust, and it started working better and better. I'm right at the halfway point of the adjustment, and works really well. The car feels absolutely amazing on and off throttle.
Thanks for the feedback Chu. The flange setup shouldn't have any impact on how the device performs.

What I've found in road racing applications is especially true in this scenario: Long straight that goes into heavy braking, with a tight exit that requires slow throttle input. If you're setup with A+B, you'll find that the vacuum is too strong and it opens the BOV/DV. So, for anyone road racing, I really recommend using Port B.

The solution by other manufacturers is more spring pre-load, which translates into the DV/BOV not working in other critical areas. Pneumatically, with only Port B the DV/BOV won't self relieve pressure until well over 60 psi anyhow, so, you'll be just fine.

That is some great info Ian! Are you sharing the same line with the DV as the boost control solenoid?

BTW just as a side note, I know that we talk alot about the DV being quick to open, but the real gold mine is how fast it closes, when you open up the throttle again. It may open in 30 ms, but it also closes in 30 ms. You should see just how incredibly fast turbo shaft speed can actually pop when it is properly re-loaded during throttle transitions.

I'm using the same line that the stock BOV used so I don't think that it's the same line as the BCS but someone can correct me if I'm wrong. Is that a good line to use or should I try using something else?

This has been by far the most noticeable difference for me. Like I said before, I didn't realize how many issues the old BOV was causing for me until after I installed the Synapse. Not only was the stock BOV staying open partially after WOT shifts but my idle would often stumble and nearly stall, and my AFRs would go really rich whenever I would press the clutch in below 3000rpm as I was slowing down or stopping. Both problems have been rectified with the Synapse DV installed. Obviously my old BOV was staying open a lot longer than it should, even under light boost.

I can't believe how much different the car feels now that I have a properly functioning BOV! Yesterday, on my way home from work I did a quick shift from 1st to 2nd at WOT and I actually managed to chirp the tires going into 2nd!!! That's something that I've never done the entire time I've owned the car. I'm still having some fluttering/surging issues in 4th and 5th but I've managed to get that worked out in 1st-3rd so I'm sure I just need to lower the WGDC a little more in those gears (Thanks Tephra for gear based boost maps ) The Bottomline is that I love this thing and I'm still kicking myself for not buying one sooner! With as good as the car feels right now I think I'll hold off on making my switch to E-85 and any other mods and just enjoy what I have for a while

My bov is prematurely blowing off on 2nd and 3rd gear at times. do I need to have it retuned?

sorry if it has been already asked but I didn't find anything...


What is the difference, performance wise, between the synapse synchronic DV and the synapse synchronic BOV?
Assuming both are recirculated...

I just installed mine in Push mode with A+B ports hooked up and didn't run into any problems in my initial testing. It opens fast, closes fast and I could not get it to flutter at all. Tomorrow when I get more time, I'll try B port only (push) and then also Pull mode A+B and B only to see if I can find any noticeable differences.

I will say though, it does come quite close to the strut bar in Push mode and has even rubbed a tiny bit due to engine movement.

The only thing I haven't tried is A&B together. I think I've figured out my flutter problem though. It does seem to be related to my Grimmspeed 3 port BCS. Whenever the BCS tries to make small changes the valve flutters. I know Synapse said that this will happen when the BCS and DV are hooked up to the same line but the only thing I have hooked up to the line with the DV is my boost gauge so I'm a little confused as to why the BCS is causing the flutter. I basically fixed it by just running the same WGDC from 4000 rpms and up. I don't have as much control over taper now but since I have gear based boost control that doesn't bother me as much.

^ according to Synapse you are not suppose to hook the boost gauge with the dv.

Yeah I thought they said that it was just the BCS that you shouldn't hook it up with. I tried asking them about the boodt gauge but I never got a reply back. I may try rerouting the lines next week so the DV has it's own designated line but I'm not sure where else I can tap into for the boost gauge.
