How do you know when the spring in your DV is not strong enough?

    As subject..

    On my Golf with a K04 tuned to 250bhp i had a Forge007 DV, where I could change the srings (with the red one being the strongest), to be honest I didnt 'really' know exactly what I was doing although I realised that the spring pressure was overcome by Turbo pressure at some point and too early was obviously detremental...

    Now, i have a hyperboost DV but how do i know its not dumping too early?

    A complete balancing act - the red spring in the Forge tuning kit is supposed to be good for tons of pressure but on my car which is running 17ish psi doesn't hold boost in 4th or 5th.

    It is a question of trying combinations and seeing what happens.

    Try putting a strong spring in, if when you rev the car hard then change gear you get a big pause before the power comes back in the DV is not working properly.

    If you don't feel the difference try driving with an obviously weak spring and see how that feels (from what I hear it is not going to cause any damage as long as you don't drive for too long).
