I have read in a lot of places that upgrading to a forge diverter valve is recommended when upping the power. I have approx 215 hp in my Mk 4 but still have the stock Bosch.
What does upgrading to the forge do?
I've been hearing that a blow off valve for the 1.8's will ruin the turbo life but I'm not sure. Ive heard a ton about the R1 Apr diverter valve and am wondering if that would be the better route rather than a blow off valve. Thanks
I HAVE A VW GTI 08/MK5
So far all i have in it is a K & N intake and a PCD chip. i want something else something with performance but not so expensive. if anyone could tell me a good way to start with making this car better then it already is, i would really appreciate it.
two things here that i would like some input on:
1) does anybody in the LA area know how to change the boost on a 2002 1.8T gti?i would like to make it faster but i don't know how to change it myself.

Lotta confusion over this :/
Looking to put a bov in but.... where? I know I need some type of pipe or adapter or something but don't know exactly what it is or where to get it. and I've seen like 4 different locations for installation. I saw a video of an mkv with the same bov that I bought and...
I have an immense amount of turbo flutter and backspin on my turbo. I heard putting a BOV on decreases the amount of air flow back into the turbo (which is what creates turbo flutter). Correct me if i'm wrong. Although, looking around on other forum sites some say that you wouldn't be able to...
Has anyone upgraded their blow of valve on their turbo to an after market one? I heard that the stock valves with a ECU tune can get damaged pretty quickly. Also heard that with a after market one when you switch gears you will start with more boost.
alright, so what i want to know is, can i just drop in a good blow off valve to get the sound of a high end turbo?
if not, what is the cheapest way to get this effect? hopefully without upgrading the snail cause i dnt have 1k for it >.<
