    Hi ive read on here that you can fit an 007p in reverse. Is this true and what will it actually do. Thanks.

    apparently it works but i think i have seen a dyno run with it set up the wrong way round and it was a bit erratic, fitting it the correct way cured it i think. People fit them in reverse because it allegedly makes a louder tsht on lift off... Might as well get it right first time around IMO

    Yup just fit it the same way as your standard dv as its a pile of poo about it sounding better, i got a slight chink noise on let off when i reversed it, and if youv got a standard airbox then i doubt youl hear anything anyway. Good choice with the 007p (there is no choice really lol)

    What about the Bailey DV30 which is also self adjusting so no messing with springs after maps

    They use a spring like most of the other aftermarket so are not self adjusting... the 007p is designed to be 'tuned' whereas the Bailey DV30 is what it is... maybe its spring is similar in stiffness to the Forge yellow spring which is normally the run to run on stage 1/2 remaps but self adjusting? nah...

    I had a bailys dv26 which is the one for 1.8t and it sounded good but was **** at holding back the boost, always leaking, and overfueling as a result. 007p is the best.

    The dv26 is an atmospheric valve though where as the 007 is a recirc

    I'm considering the 008! Seen a few on eBay but I'm not sure if it's £40 better then the 007p? But surely the 007p will mKe the difference over stock

    Save your doh and buy a 007p, only real reason to upgrade your dv would be if its broke, or your remapping. The dv does nothing in increasing bhp just forge 007ps hold more pressure and are alot more reliable.

    Yep. I only fitted mine because my old one had split. The 007 is the one to get, fit it correctly and then forget about it :)

    Could anyone tell me what happens if the wrong spring is in place? I have a non remaped 1.8t with a 007p with a yellow spring, i have no problems of what i know of, is there any noise to listen for or would the car be jumpy or sumthyn? Thanks all.

    If the spring is too stiff/hard it will be harder for the vac pressure to open the valve which would cause chatter/flutter and damage your turbo. Too soft/weak and fitted the correct way will mean your boost pressure is too high and would open the valve when you don't want it to causing boost leak. When fitted in reverse, the boost pressure acts on the side of the piston so spring choice is kinda irrelevant and its just best to have the weakest spring so DV operation is nice and smooth.

    I did have a red spring that felt softer than my yellow spring? Had it in for a while with no probs and then done a service and checked the dv over to give it abit of a grease up and found the spring was wearing away? Put my yellow back in and all seems fine. Need new intercooler pipes now though as i defintly have a boost leak!

    I am running a yellow spring on a stock 180bhp engine. Works perfectly, it's ready for a remap but isn't causing any issues at all as it is.

    I had the Forge 007p fitted in reverse. I did this because all i had was a green cotton panel filter so i wanted better dv noise. I spoke with the Forge technical team about this and they said it does NOT affect performance. The only difference is the sound as it gives a loud chirp sound. But if you have a cone filter i would recommend fitting it the correct way as the 'whoosh' would definitely be there!
