New Forge diverter AND blow off valve?!?
Whats everyones opinions of this?!?
is it just literally Ł50 extra for a noise?!?
I have a standard A3 1.8T Quattro at the mo, so want to start modding, I know the Forge 007 is a popular choice at a touch under Ł100, but is this one an improvement or?!?
Thanks in advance for any info

No improvement, and not much louder.
Seems to be the way forward doesnt it, lol
From what I can gather the 007p is quiet or silent? with a standard airbox? but I am planning to get a Carbinaro one soon anyway.
Just thought the new dual one may have been an improvement, but if its just noise I doubt its worth the extra 50 bar!

All recirc valves will be quieter than BOVs, but a lot less chavvy. The noise depends on the intake system you're blowing the air into, and the amount of air you're recirculating.
If you have a Carbionio, BMC, Viper, etc, you'll get more noise. If you have the car mapped and have a higher pressure from the turbo, you'll be dumping more air and therefoe have more noise. If you change the turbo for a bigger one, you'll get even more. My 007P is very loud - too loud!
Yeah the plan is to get the car mapped mate...
So in short, these BOV's are just dumping air into the atmosphere which is being wasted?
I looked on youtube and there are quite a few videos and I have to admit I like sounds like this :-
the high pitched short noise...
Rather than a longer noise like this which sounds more chavish :-
and ultimately would like to achive the wastegate chatter sound like this :-
A lot of them seem to be going for the HKS ones, but these seem pricey and am not sure, besides a different sound, if you would gain anything?
DUMP VALVE GOOD OR BAD FOR S3???
