    welcome to the world of VAG matey (VAG = Volkswagen Audi Group)

    As a general rule of thumb standard VAG turbo engines dont like blow off dump valves as they up set the way the engine controls the excess boost. A standard VAG engine recirculates the excess boost to keep the turbo spinning and reduce the chance of turbo lag.

    If you run a modified VAG engine with a modified ECU you can easily use a blow off valve because you can change the way the engine uses the boost to suit your turbo.

    If you are new to VAG engines but still want a blow off valve to make noises when your out and about you will need to get a good quality one like this Forge Motorsport | Alloy Fabrication

    Dont get some cheap crap of a well know auction web site as this will only cause problems later with your engine and ecu. Like they say buy cheap and pay twice.

    There is loads of info and helpful people on here and other good forums to help you learn all you need to know about your new motor

    Atmospheric dump valves dont work properly on any 1.8T motors, irrespective of the transmission.

    Stick to a recirculating valve.

    I agree with Aragorn. Perofrmane of a recirc is better than an atmospheric because it recycles the air back into the intake (thus recirc). Besides you have yourself a lovely Audi now so why ou wana scoot around sounding as if its a 5 turbo.....But each to there own. I'm guilty of it in the past (I even got an uprated spring so wastegate chatter/air coming back out the filter would be more prominent!) with jap cars and a saab! If you are intent on it stick to one of the collins motorsport units as they are brilliant and the springs are interchangeable, they are rebuildable and have race proven.....Focus ST Dump Valve Kit "Collins Performance" - BLACK on eBay (end time 22-Oct-10 16:08:21 BST)
    Good luck pal, and enjoy your AUDI!

    He can't put a DV on as it's a diesel, nothing to do with it being an automatic. Diesel engine operates in a different way. It is possible to fit a DV to a diesel but it requires a box of trick and doesn't actually offer any gain at all

    thats true, the tdi has a vnt turbo and needs no dv plus tdi's are always at atmosphere or boost with no throttle plate so no need to dump

    Anyhoo, the auto petrol of the OP (welchy) will not dump till you lift off or level out in top gear, it wont dump as it changes gear since the throttle doesnt close between gears on the auto so there is no dump till you stop pressing the pedal.....unlike the manual boys who dump every shift

    plus on the 1.8T if you fitted a cone filter then the standard factory fitted bosch dv will be very audible as it dumps into the intake just behind the maf.....
