      What's the point of these? Aren't our factor DV's piston equipped already?

      It makes it 'divert' the boost release into the engine bay instead of back into the intake side of the turbo. Basically it's BOV sound without buying a BOV.

      Been wondering where that noise has been coming from on some of the MK6s.
