    OEM Piston DV - Many people using it?

    I've just added the APR fuel pump and looking to upgrade my DV as it's lifting off it's seal and I'm wondering if many people have upgraded to the new OEM piston DV? Any reviews from people here?

    I keep reading conflicting reports. Some people say it works fine and others are reporting that their car is building up boost very slowly (nothing til over 4000rpm). I know of one guy here, Rabbit222, who doesn't seem to have any issues. Maybe Revo controls the DV in a different way?

    Also, I know forge is an option but I'm thinking OEM manufactured/tested is the best path if it works.

    There is a new OEM DV that is, by all accounts, more hardy than the original.
