    Forge Valve

    Is it recomemnded to install the Forge valve as a replacement for the OE Audi valve on a 2009 car with the revised Audi valve which is being remapped? Also is there any louder turbo/wastegate noise from the Forge valve?

    As with most things there are mixed opinions on this subject: some are running the OE revised DV with no problems. The subject is being discussed here and there doesn't seem to be a marked increase in noise from the aftermarket item; what I have learned is that as a closed loop system you want get an a typical BOV noise from the system anyway.

    As for recommended, I haven't seen it listed as a requirement for mapped cars in the same way as TBE/CAI, etc.

    For me, I don't see the need for it so far and will just move to the OE revision piece when necessary and save c. 100.

    The S3 already has the DV remotely located to the front of the engine bay which makes it less likely to tear. I would stick with the OEM DV and then only change it if you get a problem which will be unlikely.
