hey i just found out that blow off valve dont really work well with gti....something about it cause less preasuret to go to a sensor or something and makes the injectors run rich....not sure but i read something like that ....anyway....ibut is there any product out there that allows GTI to have a blow off valve without slowing the car down.......
if there is nothing to stop this form happening, how much horsepower does a gti loose?

the BOV adapter for the GTI costs more then the Neuspeed cold air intake and is 10x harder to install. it also gives you no power gains of any sort. my opinion spend yer money on the Neuspeed cold air intake or any cold air intake and you will get better performance and will still get a BOV sound.

Atmospheric BOVs may be bad for the car if it has a stock recirculating BOV. Might run rich in between shifts, which, in time, can lead to problems.

Not sure about the GTI specifically, but this is the case with several factory turboed cars. Ask your tuner.
