    nope. the bov element is a leak in ALL scenarios... on the bench, in situ... etc etc as obvious from the videos...
    It also leaks in recirc mode too.... as that piston has no seals to the cylinder wall... = leaky
    How is this ever a good thing..

    Its a **** valve.. lol

    You clearly have no Clue about this from your ambiguous non-sensical comments about what the engines consuming airflow wise..
    Std OE valves do not leak.. Aftermarket ones should'nt either. Its not difficult to comprehend is it..

    Or is it...............

    I'm relatively new to this forum (about a year) and it can initially be intimidating when tuffty goes on a "policing the forum rant", but then he has a point about stickies and rules etc as it saves a lot of repeat threads. He is admittedly is a relative expert and a genuinely useful and a valued member of ASN, hence your negative experience here Maty. Kudos to tuffty for not rising to the initial response from Maty, and in terms of the information available on the site it's second to none and I've never gone wrong with the advice here.
    I'm honestly disappointed guys and I think it's rather rude to say things like "retard" and "disability living allowance". Maybe we should keep it to the point and "professional" so as to speak.

    Think you all need to take a chill pill or go for a smoke or breathe into a paper bag . Whatever floats your boat . He asked for advice and didn't like the response . Life is too short to take it too seriously.

    Maty j, just take the advice given and get an oem Bosch DV for £45 iirc from dealer , you could sell your forge one on ebay maybe and then it wouldn't cost you anything but make a vast improvement.

    The oem DV is good for 300+ bhp iirc and when I put a new one on my s3 it was loads better than the 007p I was running IMO.

    Just out of interest, why has no one suggested the poster does a leak test of his own? Two options;

    A: the poster performs said leak test and proves his valve does (or doesn't) leak and thus Bill, Tuffty and every other knowledgeable forum user is right (or wrong).

    B: Mat doesn't perform a leak test, meaning he is worried about the results and what he might see...

    lol, why would he want to perform such a test like I video'd and confirm as it would make his whole argument in this comedy thread pointless................ Oh hang on.............. LOL

    :)

    He's tucked up in bed down under currently.. I'm sure this will resume for more amusement tomorrow..

    How the f**k is this Maty J chump still here after his response to Tuffty in post #3?!?

    For future reference: If a moderator asks you to imrpove your linguistic game, you don't respond like that.

    ...Because when a cranky Administrator happens to notice the thread, he bans you for a week so you can practice suppressing the chip(s) on your shoulder(s).

    Nobody here owes you anything, and you'd do well to listen to Paul; he's forgotten more than you'll ever know about the 1.8T.

    Come back in a week and try again; if you're still a ****, you'll have to wait until hell freezes over to benefit from the forum's experience.

    No more replies please students, the subject has turned into a complete plonker!

    Bill and Tuffty have already read him the bible and still he objects! Let's talk about something interesting instead of this dribble!

    @badger5

    I don't know what you mean? The last Ashes series was played in the northern hemisphere summer, and while England weren't as convincing as in other recent series, still successful. The next series will be played in 2015. NO OTHER GAMES HAVE BEEN PLAYED.
