So, my warranty expired at 50,000mi. and 97 miles later my CEL came back to remind me that it is still here. In any case I had a friend VAG my car, and it came up with a lower limit exceeded code. I don't have the exact error, but I am figuring that it is either a vacuum leak, or the DV diaphram has gone the way of Disco. I would like to attempt to make whatever repair myself, but if it makes more sense to go to the dealership I will.
PLEASE HELP...I want my turbo back...

holds your psi a little longer. if you want to install it yourself here is what you need to do. buy it, remove your splash shield..look at your turbo, and follow it up..there should be some thin 1/4" thich hoses connecting to what is your dv valve. its a pita to do, so bring your patience..end results in a big smile, better blow off sound..more crisp..

I agree with Pierre but i will also second the notion of it being a Pain in the A$$. Make sure you tighten the top screw all the way. I was not able to see if, you wont be able to either but make sure you feel around it to make sure it is tight. Otherwise use some blue locktite and have fun. Much better then the old diaphram crap audi uses!!

imo the dv is much easier to change on the newer b7s, than the old b6. but i felt that the forge its better, diaphragm type dv's just dont seem to last long, where the forge is all metal.
fyi tho, the current b7 uses an electronically actuated valve, where the forge is still mechanically actuated on the b7, so it doesnt respond as well.
