Still confused on he consensus if people with DSG need the spring or not? I have had mine with the spring ever since I installed it and still not sure. Also, installed the Unitronic DV relocation kit and will get a whistle with DV+. Trying to figure out if I have a leak somewhere since I'm hitting only around 15 psi and should be hitting around 20 on my GIAC tune.

NEED? No. Will a DSG benefit? Yes, but only very slightly. I have a DSG and I have a DV+ and I like it.

I'm on stock tune and not many other mods, so I can't help you with the relocation or boost leak issue.

Thanks for the input. Once I get my car back I'm gonna fiddle around with the setup to see what I like best and try to figure out the boost issue. I just realized you commented on the other post as well!

For those with DV+, do you buy a new DV during installation or use the old one?

I just install my DV+ on the weekend to get rid of the "flute" sound from my open intake. The flute noise is gone but I have noticed my intake is a lot quiter now and don't get as much turbo noise when I let off the throttle like I used to which I liked.

My question is, is there a way to get some of that blow off noise back but still have that "flute" noise taken care of?
I have heard people removing the wider spring from this DV+ on DSG equipped cars which mine is? Will that make the Diverter valve louder like the stock one again? And what else does taking out the spring do?

Thanks.

I think by removing the secondary spring your removing what GFB calls the TMS advantage feature. Basically what makes it more responsive than a regular DV (or so they claim) If you remove it, it will make the DV act as a regular Rev D just probably more durable. Also some people get a soft P2261 code with the secondary spring in. I have a DSG and leave both springs in.

Alright, thanks. If they say it acts like the stock DV with the spring out do you have any idea if that would mean the flute or goose honk sound would re appear?

No clue man! I have a frankenstein intake composed of the BSH and IE intakes and never experienced the flute noise with a stock or GFB DV. I actually tried running my GFB without the second spring before and iirc there wasnt a big difference in sound either.
