    My mates Octavia VRS did this when he fitted a Pipercross induction kit. He swore blind that was all he had changed, me thinking he had fitted a atmospheric DV or BOV.

    The chatter noise is usually a faulty DV, maybe running too strong as spring and not releasing pressure and as the air is hitting the blades within the compressor housing, it can cause it to stall and therefore giving the chatter sound. Not good for the turbo and should be dealt with sooner rather than later.

    Check the pipe that goes from the N75 to the Actuator for splits etc

    What dump valve does it have?? Standard one? The diaphrams can collapse so give it a check that its working. new one from a dealer is about 30 quid.

    Chances are your mates dv is split too mate!

    somoften the dv's on these cars are broken, and on the standard air of you usually won't hear the flutter. It only becomes apparent that you have a dv problem when you change the air filter.

    If the vac line from the inlet manifold to the dv is intact, then the dv is faulty.

    I think you will need a smoke test next mate, to rule out splits/escapes

    if you pull the pipe off the DV when the engines running do you feel a "suck" from the pipe?

    My bad, I forgot AGU egnines wasnt blessed with pointless crap like AUM.

    Funny this thread has come up. mines started doing the same when I boost past 3k.

    Ive changed all the vaccum pipes so im going to have a look over the weekend.

    are we talking a flutter when you are letting off the throttle?
    or a 'flutter' when accelerating and boosting hard?

    two entirely different things.

    Ok guys i did what badger5 said... No suck from pipe ontop of dv.. Checked the other side to that dv pipe to inlet at bottom and theres No suction there too.. But the pipe on right of inlet has vacuume so i followed that n put the dv pipe on a bleed nipple that was there.. I know its no ideal but it works n i hear the whoosh sound now.

    my question is that y is there no suction on connection under inlet?? But the pipe that connects on right of inlet does!!??

    weird one... Any help??

    Just to make it more clear as im goin on n on loll
    theres 2 outlets under intake mani.. One goes to fuel regulator n other next to it goes to dv.. The dv one has no vacuum at all!!
    i havnt checked fuel reg one as i didnt want to break the hose clip and it looks ok..
    what could cause that outlet to not have no suction?? Could there be a blockage in the manifold for that connection??
    thanks

    Just take the inlet off and give it a good clean, you can clean all the ports then without fear of dumping crap into the inlet chambers..

    You will need a new inlet gasket, theres abotu 10-12 allen studs to remove, and another 2 for the fuel rail that needs removing. be sure to cover the actual inlet of the engine whiel the manifold is off as the last thing you want, is anything going down there. get some carb cleaner and give it a good clean

    Take the throttle body off and have a look? Probably easier than taking the while thing out.
