    its the boost regulating valve located near the DV, its a funny shaped thing, the J version when fitted in reverse (or the more aggresive H version) can provide usually between 3-5 psi extra over the rev range, but also throws the car into limp mode sometimes, but theres an overboost kit available that stops limp mode from the US

    someone posted up the part number a few threads ago have a looksee

    Try vagparts.com and search for N75J. About £40 I seem to remember. Had one of these on my S3 and worked nicely with no problems.

    Jonesy I think you want a Manual Boost Controller, have a gander on ebay.
     
  10. well a friend of mine has got a boost controller i can have but the only problem is it just has the knob to controll the boost but what will i do with the electrical plug that comes from the standard n75????

    Beware though can and will throw the car into limp mode and only way to get it out is disconnecting the battery or clearing it via vag com.

    I had one on my 8L S3 and was ok for a few days then continually threw it into limp mode all the time so it had to go.

    If you have a remapped car then the chances of limp mode are much more than a standard car.

    Stick to stock n75's as said you will just get a boost spike,standard is smoother,i did logs to compare.Also if you are getting extra free boost ,do you get increased fuelling to suit,probably not.
     
  13. I’m not surprised the parts man didn’t know what an N75 J was, as they only talk in part numbers. Try again, but this time ask for an 034 906 283 J. It’s a solenoid valve originally used on 3B and RR engines.
