    DV+

    Anyone used this or heard of them? Are they any good? GFB DV+ for VW / Seat / Skoda / Audi TSI and FSI 2.0

    Never heard of them tbh, but an interesting product nevertheless and £81 isn't too bad either.

    Works out to £105 delivered, seems pretty steep.

    Interesting though, bet it would work well on tuned cars.

    Nice way to waste £81. I've got the Rev D DV. Using boost gauge, it shows it works well with perfect boost and vacuum.

    I've got the Torque App on the phone. So can monitor boost and vacuum every so often to make sure it's all ticitybooo !!!
    Magnetic phone mount sits between the two central vents.
    In a previous car, the mechanical boost gauge was located on the dash in the corner by the A pillar and windscreen.

    The rev D are terrible for not sealing properly after gear change even on stage 1 cars. I swapped mine for a rev G and it was like I'd had a remap!

    Why dont you just fit the Forge one?

    Its literally Fit and forget.....


    Yes it costs more initially, but it can be run either BOV or Re-circ and its super easy to chop between the two!

    It also has it's drawbacks and it certainly isn't fit and forget - the piston requires servicing from time to time as they can stick.

    Ok in the event of a stickage.....undo allen bolts on top, lubricate, refit, done.

    Off you go for another million miles, without the thought of cracking and diaphragms splitting.

    It just ends up being a lubricating process. Not exactly expensive and not exactly difficult.

    Yes you can. I have been for a while now, no problems at all. With this latest one developed by Forge, on my car.
