Default Synergy Turbo?

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!

Does anyone know how to get ahold of Synergy Turbo? I purchased a 20G from them, had it installed and tuned professionally, and it was blown 600 miles later in 2 days. I was told they went out of business. Does anyone have any insight on how to contact them or has anyone taken legal action?

I appreciate any information you guys might have!

Cheers,
Adam

They did close down unfortunately. We've always had good experience with their turbos though. Maybe try contacting the installer?

i thought synergy turbos were alright, sucks to hear that though. it might not be all their fault. they never know if they tune was not right or if you pushed the hell out of your car or didnt properly break in the turbo can lead to that kind of stuff; how would they know you didnt do any of that?

The car was towed from Forman to Church where I had a extremely
conservative tune done as this is my DD. I did hear great things from others out there with GEN-1 models. The GEN-2 not so. I am getting similar stories with others, but they did at least get a few K miles before theirs went. However, it is the nature of the hobby.....

Anyone want to buy the turbo and rebuild it? LOL

What is with all these blown Synergy turbos I am ready about? I have a 20G from them that has been on my car for a year now with no problems. Should I buy another turbo from another company for backup?
