    Stealth Splitter Valve?

    Has anyone had first hand experience with these? The price is appealing compared to the Forge versions but I am wondering if the quality is drastically reduced.

    Thanks in advance.

    It will probably leak (as most do) and if its remotely atmos like the Forge split-r it will be a pile of poo...

    The Forge split-r's are rubbish <end/>

    Any atmos valve is not really suited to the 1.8t engine on std management... they cause running issues (despite what anyone says)... if you insist on getting an aftermarket DV then get a Forge 007p or 008 (the latest versions have been revised and shouldn't leak) else just stick to a brand new genuine OE DV...

    Swapping the DV adds nothing to power and can reduce it if it leaks... DV's are meant to be quiet... if you want a whoooosh noise then get a remap (higher boost so more air to let out making a noise) and a cone or panel filter... or buy a scooby...

    I've just replaced a Forge Splitter valve that was on my car when I got it, with the correct recirculating one, and immediately the car ran better.
