    If its a "blow off valve " no,
    It will only cause running problems.
    The car is designed to use a recirculating type valve.
    Search the forge 007 or something

    Nice, similar to my wifes, the A3 1.8 T needs a DV (Diverter Valve)...the recirculating type, a lot of owners fit the Forge 007P.

    I think it must be the valve you are talking about. I didn't really know what it was called!

    It's a blow off valve, dont bother fitting it mate, will cause you alot of hassle. You need a re-circulating dump valve like the 007p forge one.

    That's my old car, sold it to a lad about 3 years ago who I believe you bought it off, the car should already have a forge 007p Dv fitted unless the boy before you removed it, was fitted and remapped by AmD in Bicester....

    Was a good car to me, hope you enjoy it !! :)

    Cheers mate, It seems like a decent car, although the water pump went a week after I got it! Should the re-circulating valve make a noise? If so, mine has been removed. What bhp should it be after the remap mate?

    The water pump went on me too at about 70k if irrc, the car was mapped to 194bhp with Amd which is the limit for that particular model really, the Dv never made a noise when I had it, you could just hear the turbo whistle louder...

    The car was also mapped at around 60k so even if it is the same forge item I had put on it might be passed it's best now...

    Yeah it's on 125k now so I imagine a few bits could need replacing. I'll have to put my head under the bonnet and have a look round! It does feel quick @ 194bhp
