    I just replaced my old worn out diverter valve with a 710N. Now around 2,000-2,500 RPM I get this really annoying groaning noise that will go away if I let off the throttle or accelerate. I know this has been discussed and I've read every thread I can find on the subject. But, they all kind of...

    So I'm looking to upgrade my stock 710A DV. I'm not looking to chip my car but I would like a good DV that will hold boost pressure reliably. What are the differances in the forge 007 and 008. Is one quicker and more efficient? Is one louder than the other? Also would the 007 or 008 be superior...

    FS: ECS Tuning Emissions (PCV) Service Kit , MAF Sensor, 710N Diverter $250 takes it I purchased the following parts brand new from ECS Tuning less than a year ago because I'm a bit of a hoarder and wanted them around just in case anything went wrong. They are 100% brand new and unused. I have...

    So, I ordered a 710N Diverter Valve from ETEK and based on their website picture I assumed I was getting a Bosch part. I did not get a Bosch part. I got a part with no manufacturer mark or place of manufacture or even a complete part #. Those were sanded off (pic attached). When I emailed ETEK...

    They're $38 on ECS right now. I have a chipped 2000 atw. What program? Good question. Idk. Nothing too crazy, in summer temps, spike around 17 hold 14. Now, spike 15 hold 12. I do see some fluctuation in boost sometimes, which makes me feel a new DV is a good idea. My issue is, however, if the...

    Hey first post here, so please be easy on me :P Just got my 02 5 spd 1.8t a month ago. Loved it, ran the p*ss out of it for about 3 days (used to my old 1.9tdi :D ), then on the way to work one day i felt it lunge, and heard the familiar flutter sound I've read about. After a few more stop...

    Hey guys My dad just bought me a 710N diverter valve and I was wondering what would happen if I put it on my car (non chipped). Would I get an increase in power or something? Decrease in power? Decrease in reliability or anything? I heard these DV's are used on chipped cars so... Thanks, Elliott

    Hi all- Just installed my 710N DV this past weekend. Nice change...better spool and holds boost much better than my stock DV It also seems like my gas mileage has gone up significantly...have yet to fill the tank and calculate yet, but the computer reads ~28 mpg rather than the usual ~23. Is...

    I plan on getting my 2000 1.8T chipped, but found a good price on an Audi TT diverter valve that I was going to get right now. What would be the effects of putting the valve in before I chip the car? Thanks in advance.

    Is the 710G the same as the 710N diverter valve? Thanks

    I've seen a few posts where people say the 710N can be had for $35. The best I can find is $45 with free shipping from MJM Autohaus. Where else sells it for less? Local dealership and indy shop both want nearly $60 for it. I can get a Forge 007 for $125 to my door, but can't really justify $80...

    Had a new turbo fitted sometime ago. Never been completely happy as I had an issue with boost fluctuation between the 16 to 20lb mark. I already had a 710n valve fitted when my car was upsoluted. I was reading through some diverter valve info on this site, when I came across a diagram showing...
