    your DV is in backwards mate, if you're running high boost on a standard spring, it will be forced open for sure. Flip it round to the side of the DV goes into the throttle body hose.

    Also, I don't like the look of the vacuum line, have you used a joiner to connect into the old DV top line? It gives you WAY too much un-needed hose and much more chance for a leak. If there's a leak in that vacuum line the DV won't be opening as it should at all, and also won't be held shut under boost, so with it being in backwards, you're probably loosing boost!

    Trace the original DV feed back to the inlet manifold (may be the FPR on some) and plug the silicon in there directly.

    The noise with the cold side kit is definately different though, dont worry about that

    you have WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY more than enough. see where it's resting on top of the inlet manifold in the bottom right of the pic? That's there it needs to connect underneath!

    the line you have tapped onto the end of, trace it back, and you will find it is connected to the inlet mani, rip all that **** out, including the metal section of the pipe, and fit the silicon directly onto the inlet mani.

    the less joins you have in the pressurised system the better!
