    Hi all.
    With my S4 health check coming up soon, I am pretty sure they are going to tell me that my standard diverter valves are shot.

    What are the best uprated DV's to replace the standard ones with?
    I don't want anything too loud, fairly silent like the standard ones really.

    I fitted a Forge recirculating one to my previous Audi (2001 B6 A4 1.8T)
    after it was remapped at a cost of £105.

    However with the S4 needing 2 of them I was not sure if I should buy a coulpe of them or fit 710's from the S3 (I have read about this in other posts)?

    Any advice appreciated.

    Thanks

    Ooow there it mentions you have to grease the piston-based one every year or so.

    Is that true of the forge ones as I was going to go for one of them, but being mechanically clueless I dont want to have to try and take it out and "lube it up" every so often :/

    Can anyone with experience of these comment?

    Looks like a good deal, do they need to be greased the first time you install them?

    What exactly does "greasing" involve? some sort of oil that goes in the top? or? Thanks for your help, sorry to go off topic a bit
