I love the sound of the atmospheric BOV but as i understand the VW has an internal BOV that doesnt work the same. Is there any way to get the atmospheric BOV (the one that makes the PSHHHHH sound) and not throw 100 different check engine lights? Any help would be great. Ive found this one
but im just wondering if anyone has actually attempted this change and how it worked because there is a disclaimer that it may not function exactly as before and i dont wanna risk screwing up the car by doing it.

hey im glad somebody has posted on the BOV, as ive been after one for some time but dont know which is best...

after doing some research i guess the forge atmos is the best as its made specialy for the vw 2.0 t engine.

i suppose it will help the turbo but most people say it makes the turbo slower without remapping the ecu it aint worth having.?????
i think i will just leave it stock, i was thinking of an airfilter aswell but if oil leaks into the maf system the cars a gonner so ive heard??

the carbonio and neuspeed are the best options but im just not sure after hearing these comments
