1.8t Blow off Valve
« on: 07 February 2018, 03:03 »
Call me a ricer, I don't care.

I have recently fallen in love with the MK4's...I am torn between the VR6 or the 1.8t.

I love the exhaust note on the VR6, while the 1.8 is lacking in that department. My question is, what is the best blow off valve to get the nice 'woosh' noise after letting off? If I have that sound, I could sacrifice the VR6 noise.

Thank you!

Admittedly I don't know much about this stuff, but:

It's not just the valve, its the induction kit / panel filter too and a remap.
A standard 1.8T with any DV on it isn't loud at all
ARZ K03s, Oettinger Side Skirts, R32 front, Carbon stage 2, Forge 007p (yellow spring), Forge Actuator (yellow spring), Pipercross panel filter with DSG parts, N249 and N112 deleted, SAI deleted, Carbon canister deleted, Rear wiper deleted, Long Life turbo back custom exhaust with 200 cell sports cat, VR6/G60 clutch kit, Creation Motorsport TIP, Catch can, 'Wellycooler', K04 charge pipe, S3 ported inlet manifold - looks pretty standard on the outside though :)
