    The dump valve you mention is an uprated one, as the standard plastic ones dont handle the extra boost from the remap very well and are pretty crap, the 1.8t all run a closed loop system which means the the dumped air is recirculated, no ptshhh noise. Not really any power gains though, but i think they do improve running. 205.8 bhp did you get that figure from a dyno, seems quite high for just a remap.

    Yeah the forge dump valve will improve running and is highly recommended when running a remapped car. 205.8bhp sounds about right if not a little low, I take it you had the 150bhp version.

    You want a recirculating DV otherwise you will loose power and risk damaging your turbo. You do still get quite a noticeable noise with the forge DV, I've personally got a bailey recirc DV.

    That's probably about right as you're only running 1bar of boost, who done it for you as the gains differ between the companies.

    There's loads on ebay, have a search.

    It takes 5 minutes to fit as it is a direct replacement, so it's just a question of undoing the jubilees, taking the old DV off and putting the new one in and doing the jubilees back up. Simples.

    Awesome GTi do the Forge 007 with their logo on it for about 15 less than the regular one. That's what I went for.

    Had my old A4 1.8T Superchipped and their figure was 186bhp, so yours sounds realistic rather than some (most) companies pie-in-the-sky figures!

    You won't lose power as you already have a DV as standard but it's plastic and will most likely break with the extra boost you're using. It doesn't really matter which one you get as they are the same just different make, I'd be getting the cheaper one or do as JS1500 said and get the awesome GTI DV as it's even cheaper http://www.awesome-gti.co.uk/product...13863&xSec=382
    If you don't go for any of these, where ever you decide to get it from just make sure it's a recirculating DV and not an atmospheric DV otherwise you will lose power.

    You can get a forge split valve, that bleeds a little air out to make the noise, but you need to recirculate most, as the air is pre metered by the airflow meter and will overfuel the engine. My car had a chip change as the ecu could not be reflashed. Was done by a bloke called Scott Phillips who came and done all the work while the car was on the drive. He gave a full warranty and tested car before and after. Think the software was from a German based tuning company. But he said that prob about 190-200 bhp now, car should stay reliable with that.
