    I had one fitted when I had my big turbo fitted. Can't say it's any louder than my standard bosch item though.

    with it been remapped its running higher boost, which means more presure too get rid off. therefore making it louder than it was not mapped. also if uve fitted a aftermarket panel filter it will also be alot louder.

    sound like you you have a leak if it was making a noise before being mapped.
    did they check the boost when it was re mapped or do you have a boost gauge?

    Mine makes the ever so slight ptssshh noise. Its normal, the sound is exagerated with after markert filters and remaps.

    Mine makes a noise, it changes with the spring that is fitted and also the speed with which you left off the throttle when you change gear.

    I don't think you have a boost leak...

    A small dumping sound is normal for the 007. If the standard valve makes lots of noise then it means it's split. This might be what the garage was reffering to.

    As mentioned if you have a cone filter you will hear it more.

    You can change for a stronger spring or add a few shims to reduce the noise, but don't go to strong as you want to dump pressure to stop the turbo stalling (unless you are into that ford style chopping sound when you change gear :-( ).

    hmm yeeeeah.. after telling myself not too, to stick with the idea of an A4 I just cracked.. tried some insurance quotes et voila, here I am. I have to knock the rear seats everytime I go to carry all my kit, but still. Nice motor!

    Bet the 1.8T shifts now! you've got a nice list of mods..
