One of the Forge DV piston got stuck - so back to stock for the moment while I sort this out.

Yes - I haven't read any issues with it as well. Last Google issues were in the Audis and in 2008. Probably back luck . I am reviewing a different option at the moment.

Maybe just a dud DV then. Sure they will replace?

Probably, the installers have made sure everything is working in order, have it lubed correctly, and have it on their test bench with an air compressor and tested before installation too.

Will see who I need to speak to. Once I got all the pictures of the kit, I will email Forge and see if they are going to deal with it directly or I have to go through Mike from N54tuning.

I haven't picked up the car yet, but apparently the DV has been a hassle fitting especially the hose. FMIC went straight in. The ER charge pipe needs a little fiddle but relatively straight forward.

I saw a thread about the right way to fit the Forge DV's. The boost tubing needs to point away from the airbox.

Okay, picked up the car today, and the installer has done a great job. The ER chargepipe was the easiest to fit - it just went straight in. The tube is much larger than the stock pipe and as someone was saying I can see the baffle on the stock part - which is now gone. It is not louder when it was warm, but definitely louder on a cold start - it could also be where I have started the car though.

The Wagner actually requires minor trimming for it to fit perfectly on the vertical shroud. The included bolts didn't fit, but they have plenty in the workshop to secure the FMIC down.

The Forge DV valve opens this morning. Could be due to a heat issue where it was stuck? I had a good inspection but can't see the opening of the forge to even change the spring?? Need to investigate further.

You can feel the extra omph from the FMIC, and the response are better. I haven't got a chance to really have a go yet as it is a it wet today up on the coast - but I am already loving it!

Where about the body it screws apart? I am struggling to screw anything apart on that thing... I think the Green spring must still be inside.

yeh its a well machined piece of kit. The top screws off iirc, but saying that i am starting to doubt myself. if you put the bottom hose connector in a vice and grab the top with multi grips and turn anti clockwise it'll come apart

I recently installed mine Steve. I can't remember them being too hard to screw apart? If I did use vice &/or multi grips I would've put a rag underneath to protect the anodised finish. I removed the green springs (supposed to be similar to the standard DV spring pressure), & inserted the yellow ones. They were easy to install too. I just needed to get the elbow angles right so the DVs didn't rub on anything.

Thanks Tim - unless I got two dud ones... do you remember where it opens up?

I don't think I did Steve. 'May need to use these if you're running really high boost & want even greater spring pressure.
