Welcome to Librarium Online!
Alright. I took allot of your guys recommendations. I am wondering how this list will work. I feel its low on shooty but you will tell me I guess. Ha-ha.
Hive Tyrant. Adrenal Glands (I) Enhanced Senses (BS) Extended Carapace Barbed Strangler, Scything Talons. Warp Field for pysh. 209 (too Expensive? I was thinking I should keep it to 175 tops.)
Tyranid Warrior Brood Adrenal Glands (I) Extended Carapace Flesh Hooks Leaping (Should I give them toxic sacs?) Bio Plasma. 165 (Five of these guys, and I did not include toxic sacs)
Geanestealers Brood Extended Carapace Scything Talons 240 (10 of these in 1 brood)
Hormagaunt Brood Adrenal Glands Extended Carapace 192 (two broods of these at 16 in a brood so a total of 384)
Spinegaunts (question on these guys. They get 1 shot each, reroll if they miss and 2 cc attacks? 3 if they charge?) [3 groups of 16 guys at 80 points a brood total of 240]
Last thing is I have about 200 points left. I don't know if I want to take 5 Reveners. OR if I want to take a Carinfex, with Enhanced Senses Extended Carapace Bonded Exoskeleton Reinforced Chitin, also with Barbed Strangler and Venom Cannon.
So that will be about 14xx. But only reevers or Fix, not both. So let me know. I am pretty sure I got the point value right this time, but don't take my math for it Hahaha.
Mixing ranged and melee with TMCs is typically considered bad business by Tyranid players. Replace those Scything Talons with a Venom Cannon (if you drop Warp Field, you should have the points). You can safely drop AG(I) with an all-shooty Tyrant, too.
If you can find the points, get this guy (at least) two Tyrant Guard (I prefer TG with Lash Whips, it's free and it helps you if the Tyrant gets assaulted).
Hive Tyrant w/ Enhanced Senses (BS), Extended Carapace, Barbed Strangler, Venom Cannon. 155. Question with this, can he fire both wepons in the same round?) With Ret 254 (two ret guys, with lash whips)
Tyranid Warrior Brood w/ Adrenal Glands (I), Extended Carapace, Flesh Hooks, Leaping, , Bio Plasma Scything / Rending. 200 (Five of these guys)
Genestealers w/ Extended Carapace, 200 (10 of these in 1 brood)
Hormagaunt Brood w/ Adrenal Glands (+I), (two broods of these at 16 in a brood so a total of 352)
Spinegaunts (the question came from "these are carried in pairs" usally with marines if they have a bolter, they get an extra cc attack.) [3 groups of 16 guys at 80 points a brood total of 240]
Carinfex, with Enhanced Senses Extended Carapace Bonded Exoskeleton Reinforced Chitin, also with Barbed Strangler and Venom Cannon. 200
1446 is my new total. I really couldn't up the numbers too much becuase the ret guys are 45 a pop. How would this list fair?

Incorrect unit costs are in red.
You might consider replacing your Warriors with two broods of cheap flying warriors instead. They're not very effective, and will die like chumps, but they should last long enough to provide advanced synapse for your Hormagaunts if you keep them in cover / out of enemy LOS.
Cheap Flying Warriors:
3x Warriors w/ Wings, Scything Talons, Rending Claws - 114 (x2, 228 points)
Alternatively, you could get a Flying Tyrant to do the same thing. One of the best flying Tyrants is:
Hive Tyrant w/ Wings, Enhanced Senses, Toxin Sacs, 2x Twin-Linked Devourers, Warp Field -196 (oops) points
If you have points to spare, get him Adrenal Glands (Initiative) and Flesh Hooks too. This tyrant's a bit tricky to use. You see, ideally you want him to fire all his weapons at a target, and then assault them on the same turn. This means he needs to be hitting targets that aren't aready swamped by Hormagaunts. Good thing he's blindingly fast, huh?
Alternatively, you can have him blast away at squads within 18" that are about to be charged by hormagaunts, weakening them before your assault.
He's also reasonably effective against low AV vehicles, and because he's twin-linked BS4 with rerolling S5 wounds, this Tyrant averages 11-12 wounds per shooting phase. Which is very, very nice.

Hive Tyrant w/ Wings, Enhanced Senses, Toxin Sacs, 2x Twin-Linked Devourers, Warp Field -156 points I REALLY like this HT. i think i will swap him out to get the synapse range. If i did that i would also have about 90 points to play with to get other things. Perhaps a couple winged warroirs or something. I'll have to think about it. Maybe give the HT both AG and make him a real big CC monkey. with 90 poitns perhaps i should buy some more stealers? ideas?
I persnaly don't like things that die easly. Could do it i guess. Maybe i could split up my warroirs? have a group of 4 and a group of 3. That way i cover the board. *shrugs* things to think about.
Ok here is an odd question, with this list, I have 2 synapse broods. My HT and my warriors. Should I either A: split my warriors up so my carnifex isn't left in the dust? or B: just move my warriors and fex at the same time? as the winged HT has to support the stealers and my gaunts? Guess I didn't think this all the way though?
