    hi

    I have a mark 1 audi s3 thinking of buying a forge recirculating blow off dump valve. has anyone got one fitted or know if it will make the noise.

    If you have one fitted how good does it sound?

    Cheers

    You get more noise from more boost pressure (remap) and running an aftermarket filter (open cone or panel filter...)...

    The valve (regardless of if its OE or Forge recirculating) makes no real difference...

    And don't bother with a split-r or any type of atmospheric valve...

    general opinion is stick to the OEM valve, they're good up to 30psi i believe, forge recirc valve is pretty much just engine bay bling, needs to be serviced every year so is a bit of a false economy buying one (although i have one myself) .
    that's what i've gathered from people on here anyways but lots of people will have different opinions.

    and yea, dont bother with atmospheric blow off valves or split valves
