      Never knew about this. I wonder if it helps with boost like the N75 of older setups?

      Cheers

      ^^^^ i ended up call ecs last night and they said it will work on all 2.0t except b7's.

      the ecu's from the a3/vw models are different and will work in conjuntion with it.. but ours goes nuts when it is put into the system. They say it will go directly to limp mode.....

      sux, i was gonna pick one up

      Those things generally suck anyways. The stock N75 valve is perfectly fine, if you want more boost, talk to your tuner, the N75 is not the weak link in the chain stopping you from getting more boost. There are other limitations like the turbo, fueling,... so on.

      yea iam well aware of that.... But on my 1.8t the n75 valve smoothed any surging and help hold a higher more consistant boost... imo.

      i figuered same concept would apply. But i was wrong...
