    Unhappy Lack of Boost.

    Hi guys wondering if you could help ?

    ive done a scan of my a3 1.8t aum and had a few faults.
    mostly misfire , ive read a few post and found out my coil packs were under a recall. had them done the other day and it seems to be better.

    the main problem is the malfunction of my N249 valve. when driving i get a fairly loud hissing nosie followed by a noise sounding like a dump valve, so i've checked to see if the donnut that last had the car had put one on and its the standard oem diverter valve top right corner under the engine cover (If im looking in the right place) im a complete newbie to a turbo and dont know where to even start.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    Post up the fualt codes mate... codes will help work out whats going on..

    This will also help...
    Category:Fault Codes - Ross-Tech Wiki

    By malfunction of the N249 I will assume you got a 'mechanical failure' code? has the N249 been bypassed?

    Any other details such as if the engines remapped, other mods etc will help but get the codes up from the scan

    If you haven't done the bypass and you are getting that fault with a std DV then I would imagine the DV is the problem... you should be getting a choo, choo, choo type noise letting off part throttle if the diaphragm has gone... OEM ones are cheap... or get a 007p/008 from Forge

    Hi ya Peep's.

    ive fitted the new DV today got hold of one from a vrs, the loud hissing noise has now gone and the DV is silent rather than sounding like the choo choo choo that was said by <tuffty/>. i still get a small amount of nosie as the turbo spools up, is this right and just the turbo making noise. Also i would like to know if i have a ko3s or ko3 turbo. the power since ive changed the dv doesnt seem any different, would i notice a change or not ??? i know a DV makes no proformance diffrence but thought as the oem one was damage it might. thanks guys.

    Aum has the k03s standard unless it's been replaced at some point. I've got a noticeable spool and dump sound since I put a 007p, silicone tip and pipercross panel filter on. Although it wasn't exactly silent in standard form like I've been lead to believe.

    As for the faults im not too sure sorry. Check the ross-tech wiki like tuffty suggested

    Forge 007p, Pipercross Panel Filter, Eibach Prokit 35mm drop, EBC Green Stuff Pads
