Hey guys - I'm planning to make my own FMIC setup in the near future, but I want to keep the stock BPV. I tried searching for a proper flange, but only found
some on eBay that won't fit. The flange on the stock intercooler seems to have a 30mm diameter hole and I want to match that exactly.

Does anyone know where I can get a flange for the stock BPV? Otherwise I guess I would have to have one made at a machine shop, or maybe buy an eBay flange and have it modified to fit. Any ideas? Thanks!

No one makes a flange pipe for the stock bpv. You have to make your own. What I did was buy and hks flanged pipe. Then drew a template of the stock bpv and had it machined and welded onto the hks pipe. Make sure not to buy the stainless steel one. Get the aluminum.

The Synapse adapter looks good. I actually came across it earlier today, but I didn't give it too much thought. I could have the BOV side welded to a pipe. The flat side matches the stock BPV. This looks promising - thanks!

I'm going to remove the bumper tomorrow to take some measurements so I can make a decision on which IC core to buy. I'm really going to take my time on this.

I ordered all the parts I need. But because I'm in Canada, I had everything shipped to a friend of a friend in the US. My friend will be staying in the US for 2 weeks later this month and will bring everything back for me. This will save me taxes, fees, etc, but it means that I won't get the parts until the first week of November. From there, I will take my time, working only on weekends. This is my only car, so I will need to plan ahead and take it slow.

As for the flange, I got the Synapse adapter. Probably not the cheapest way to build a flange, but I think the results will be good.
