    Hi,

    I've got a Forge 007 diverter valve on my S3, it's been remaped - which colour spring should I be using? And what are the problems with using the wrong colour spring?

    cheers!

    Yellow, you may also need some shims. The wrong spring if too soft won't hold boost and recirc it sooner then need, the wrong spring when too hard won't allow the valve to open.

    Green if you don't ask for a different colour.

    Forge told me either green or yellow. Experiement with yellow if not happy with green.

    Hi Dean
    Thanks for the email
    The 007 valves come assembled with a green coloured spring inside as standard , this will be fine on a standard car or a chipped car

    I'm going back to std, as I have a few strange boost issues, off/on boost at revs 3-4k rpm :)
