    Mke sure it is a recirculating valve or your car wont run properly! Even the split r ones are not good... That one there is the 008 from forge and is really good with adjustable internals to suit different boost pressures

    The split r is a pita to set up I've been there with my old Leon Cupra r. Try it on full recirculating. Have you got a boost gauge so you can see if its set up right ?

    weve tried going to the limits on Turing both ways still cutting out and running lumpy do you think them 2 adapter /valve thingys it came with are important?? Coz the one on my original DV is a different size connector to the type we are trying

    Cheers guess al put the placker scrapper one back on the split r one is being a right hassle and waste of money so do the forge 008s make the tsssh noise

    Therw should be three ports on the valve two which need to be connectd up to original and then one which is used as the dump! This one meeds to be covered witht the blanking plate because these engines are not made to dump the air out, they work best with the air rcirculating bk around system! The purpose of a uprated dv is not to get a dump sound but to hold higher levels of boost pressure. Like i said if you wont the dump you need to install and open cone filter and it ill give you the noise you are after like mine
