the hks ssqv isnt open/close on boost/vacuum it opens and closes on pressure differences. so when you boost its close but when it unboost is opens... but then when you idle it closes back up because idle is a different pressure then blow off. if you get what im saying?

i read somewhere that your not supposed to run a bov unless you get your ecu tuned to run without the maf sensor? it didnt sound right to me but then again i bought my gti with a lot of mods and one of them was a bigger DV n i was wondering why they didnt just go with a bov??

False info you read.

For mkiv's you can run a bov if it's closed at idle. You can do that on an all stock motor, no problems.

It still runs on vac pressure, boost holds it closed but vac opens it up hence the vac hose on the back...
