    Ok, might be a silly question but does it matter which way the diverter valves go? the reason why I ask is after doing to research on the net I have seen them both up / down and on there side. Had a look at mine and 1 if facing up and 1 on the side, does this cause any issues?

    The OEM valves should be mounted with the boost going in the side of them, and the intake pipe going to the bottom port.

    On an S4 this means they're on their side, with the vacuum nipples pointing towards each other.

    However various aftermarket valves are supposed to be installed the other way round.

    Ok so with mine being 1 one way and 1 the other is not right, right? I have Forge 007's so which way should these be fitted?
