Default Blow off valve?????

hello, im new here and new to Turbo cars...
before i had a 2000 supercharged pontiac grand prix so it did not have a option for a blow of valve...

I always liked the way the sound it makes.
are they worth it or should i just skip it and just get an intake for now?
Will they damage a OEM setup?

I have a 2004 A4 1.8t

thanks

skip it and don't get an intake, save your money to get real power

if you are on a budget get a tune and upgrade your dv, then move to exhaust and upgrade your ic

or if your not on a budget, upgrade your turbo and all the other goodies

Default what's up kraut?

you probably don't remember me, but I met you and your vehicle at Parktown imports awhile back...you were buying a bolt, I was buying gaskets. BOV are bad for our cars, use DV only...and the stock intake is very efficient...listen to kraut and get an exhaust or tune or upgraded turbo

Don't make your car sound like an obnoxious suburu. You own an audi, not a ricer! Have some distinction!

hey now guys i have a bov or forge 004... but i do have a bt to go with it....


and what up dude, hows the car treating you....

a dv or diverter valve is the vave that you are trying to replace, it goes from under the intake manifold to the tip(turbo inlet pipe) to the inter cooler

the dv recirculates the air back into the system.... and no to the exhaust since it is for a b6, which has dual exhaust and you have single


like i said, start with chip, dv and boost gauge

then move to the other stuff, front mount and exhause(test pipe/muffler.....)



oh and ebay is not really the place for audi people to buy their parts
