    2 things mate......

    if you're running 10psi, the car is NOT standard. standard boost on an AGU is only 6-7psi at absolute most. 10psi isn't high enough to imply it's been mapped, but it's definately not standard.

    Also, if you're getting any flutter when you back off, your DV is broken. SImples. Flutter is compressor stall, and is a REALLY bad thing for the ko3. a flutter means the diaphram is split and the DV isn't opening. This will give you REALLY bad fuel economy. poor throttle response, and generally is *****.

    otherwise, good job!

    its a new DV mate. its not broke. i know the stall is bad for the as there made from fag papers. dunno what it flutters, the DV works fine.

    As for the 10psi... i did wonder what it was higher than 7. could be a chipped ECU maybe?

    again on the flutter.. me and my pals have had the whole boost system off and everything tickadi boo!

    Edit: fuel is really good, and throttle responce is spot on. Even more so i have fitted this induction jobby. Make sense it dont, feel free to come have a test drive :) (no sarcasem there or bitchyness) im serious mate!! were as baffled as anyone else why it flutters! Its not like the flutter the mk4 boys have coz they block off there pipes. its a loudish soft flutter if that makes sense. (shugs) i dunno!

    if you're absoutely sure the DV is new and in working condition, then it must be a vacuum problem mate.

    I can promise you, if you're getting a flutter, then the DV is not operating when you back off. you should get a single WOOOOOOSH, and nothing more.

    10psi seems very low for a remap, a ko3 is usually mapped to 15psi. could there be a boost controller hidden in there somewhere?

    na deffo no boost controller.. i like my engine. like i say, we have had the whole boost system off. vac only reads -13 which i thinks low as my AEB lump was at -20 psi. and so was the scoob. Myself and Byzan fitted this engine when my mate owned it. there is deffo no MBC. me dunno :( not unless Audi sold me a dud DV. anyone got a spare i could try?

    yea, something is Odd mate, sounds like the vacuum line to the DV perhaps, that would cause low vac readings and stop the DV from working.

    You should be seeing -20 vac when warmed up, and you should definately not have any flutter. so something isn't working. the increased boost is very odd though, extra preload on the actuator perhaps?

    :( mate really, under normal circumstances i would hold them/take a deposit. The fact i just been made redundent too dont help the cause either. I need the 18`s on before i can fit my coilovers and the rest of the gubbings i have. its silly to do it all twice. plus my lower arms really clonking now. Im not excusing you out dude, but in this instance i just cant do it. im sorry. Ask all that know me, i would normally.

    sorry fella. :( :icon_thumright:
