    If you used parts from lowes/home depot, which I did as well, after a period of time check your Tee and barbed coupler for defects!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just relocated my diverter valve from the bottom of the motor up to the top in front of the airbox. I used 1" heater hose to run the vacuum lines coming off of it. There is more distance for the air to go, and I'm wondering if this is why it isn't making nearly as much noise anymore. Before...
