    you wont really get it as s3's recirc the pressure. The whoosh noise is the boost pressure getting released to the atmosphere, which the S3 will not like and mess with the ecu.

    Best thing is to get a forge or similar dump valve and a panel filter (pipercross for example)

    And also ive heard of people drilling hole in their air box for the whoosh noise on s3's, but i would never do that myself.

    The best ones are the ones that have no whoosh noise. if you want the noise without compromising on performance, get a Forge recirculating valve (FMCL007P) and then a BMC CDA or something like that. You get the noise without leaking the air to atmosphere and creating lag.

    recomend either forge 007p or you can uprate the standard one to a bosch 710n unit, which comes off a tt225bhp, does same job at fraction of cost!!

    Chav!!.


    .....well someone had to

    Panel filter and a 007 will give you a bit more 'whoosh' but it'll never EVER be anything that dumps to atmosphere.

    I have fitted my 007p the other day and i have noticed that the dump sound is alot louder then the standard bosch valve.

    Should this be the case or am i leaking boost?

    Not sure as i have only owned the car a few days before putting the new valve on. Should you be able to hear the valve re-circ the air fairly loudly around 3kish revs?

    That one will fit

    Tested on the TT forum to have the best gains.....

    But as has been said , can`t use proper dump valves on the 1.8T

    You could always try turning the 007P round to see if it gives any more sound
    It worked on my son`s MK4 Golf 1.8T , now he is more impressed

    Oh ok, not to worry.
    Do these valves make much of a noise or do they sound like more of a quiet sneeze?
