    mad max diverter

    so after a lot of reading and research i decided to try the mad max diverter.
    Bought a evo 9 diverter for £60 ebay.
    Turned up, did the fill on the oem hole and drilled the new one.
    Fitted and went for a spin.
    i did not crush the top part yet, im not running huge boost and fitted backwards( reversal of normal dv fitting)
    First thoughts are very impressive.
    Very responsive and good pick up between changes.
    off to work now so i will let you know how it works on a longer run.

    Had mine fitted for about 3 weeks and love it, its the actual one off max, noise, response etc is immense, just a shame about the price.

    To be honest I have never used one, for the simple reason it's a DV, it has no performance enhancement, the forge DV's are good and so are 3rd party ones. As long as it holds boost and opens when it should it doesn't matter who or what make it is in my opinion! Buy it if you feel like something different but it's not going to change your life. It's better than stock , which is all that matters!

    But listen to those that have used

    Dan i totally agree but this is a defo improvement over the forge 008 that i ran, throttle response is better and back on boost is better if that makes sense.

    It's funny as its the "BIGGEST" thing on ttforum at the moment but things like Wellys coolers, b5 tips , hybrids all seem to be behind..

    Maybe we're all being a bit slow now with this!

    A little update.
    Last night on the way home, coil pack gave the ghost (was trying the tfsi uprade coils)
    Got home just.
    So this morning refitted my old bolt downs and went to pick up my xs manni gasket (wrong one will have to wait till monday now to fit xs)
    Any way i would recommend this valve, you can feel the difference between gear changes and pick up.
    im glad i took plunge, the valve all in all cost me about £100 with reducers and hose.
    Dani does The hole in your valve go all the way through to the internal chamber? or does it just penetrate the first skin?
    This is the only part i didnt understand
    The valve is double skinned where the hole is
    My valve is deffo not shiney lol
