Default 08+ HKS ssqv and Process West TMIC

So, after installing everything last night I ran into an issue. The PW tmic is wider, therefor moving the bpv over. Thus, moving it further away from the recirc line. Now, with the way HKS thought so smartly about routing the 08+ SSQV, its like 6 inches even further to the right away from the recirc line. Nowhere near reaching. Is there a flange I can replace the goofy setup that it came with to just bolt it right to the intercooler, that way the recirc line can hook up, or am I SOL and have to just go ahead and order a FORGE and cut my losses? Anyone have an idea? I have to get rid of the stocker, because on my way home from getting tuned today I managed to hear it start to leak and chatter when I put my foot on the floor in forth or fifth to build full boost.

Yea Id like to get this sorted out because Im not really too fond of having a leaky BPV right now haha. Its literally right on the edge. Sometimes if I put my foot down it will hold the boost, sometimes at the same boost level and the same putting my foot down itll start to leak and chatter.

Why not set it up similar to how a FMIC flange would be. Get the flange to bolt on the TMIC, then use a silicone hose to connect to teh HKS, that would give you enough play to move the unit over.

You can also try to find a longer hose. Perhaps something from home depot or a radiator hose.

Due to work I have been having a hard time getting under my hood to get a pic, but I did find this...

When I looked up the ssqv a couple times for my year, it shows it with that type of flange on it from the start. Why did mine come with this goofy flange, to rubber hose, to valve setup?

Just seems rediculous to me to put a long hose between my intercooler and valve, and then have to make the recirc hose longer to reach it all when It should Just bolt right to the intercooler, plug together, and be done.

I bought this one for a reason. Its a pull type which I wanted. The money is already spent I just didn't get what was pictured and I'm trying to find the correct flange. Thanks for Your help though.
