hi everyone

i no that the audi has a recirculating system where the turbo puts the sir back into the intake. my mechanic tells me that if i take off the diverter valve the car will cut off . i was wondering if this is true and if it is can i have both a diverter var and blow off valve in my car without having ne performance problems or affect the car in ne way.

don't install a BOV on the 1.8t. Here are two reasons why: firt of all (which you already discussed) the 1.8t isnt made for a BOV. It has a diverter valve. Reason 2: ususally people put blow off valves on for proformance reasons, putting on on a 1.8t would only sound cool, not really give you any proformance - actually proformance would probably suffer.

You need to get an aftermarket diverter valve like the one from Forge. You'll get a similar sound to a BOV without the other problems.

no.. but not sure why you'd want that... i'd rather have the excess air pushed back into the air system rather than being shot into the atmosphere :huh:

i dont know i guess im one of those who likes the sound
diverter valves make a louder sound too... just a different type. ppl who know audis/vws know the sound. people who really know audis/vws who here a BOV "pssssssst" will be mad at you :p

hard to describe.. still sounds like air being moved from one place to another.. a diverter valve sounds more mechanical i'd say... just get one. its just about the same price as a BOV
