WHAT!? So theres no way that you can remove it when you start throwing codes!? You are aware that 1.8Ts are happiest with a diverter and NOT a Blow off valve right?

I'm in school and have nothing better to do.

Cons: After WOT if you let the car drop back to idol it will totally stall out if the valve is tunned to loosely. with a loose valve ALL of the air is relaeased and nothing is left to ignite.
Tunning them can be a pain,but ones its done just tighten the bolt and it will be fine. The car never has CEL's and will never idol or run rough like some others can. Since the HKS is a push and not a pull (mabye other way around) it can never leak.
Each time you shift, or it goes off the car runs rich for like 1/5 of a second, Nothing that will hurt it, but the cat will reduce its lifespan. Once it is tunned right, you can slowly let off the gass and it will pssh for like 10-20 seconds if u can do it right, its so much fun pulling besided a honda and just letting it rip. Ask anyone at the york GTG's my friends golf with the SSQUV sounds amazing and when pulling up to a local hangout (sheets) and letting it rip, just watch all of the necks snap to see who that was. I never get tired of driving/riding in that car. Theres some more pros and cons but im drawing a blank right now, ill post them as i think of them.

Make sure it is tunned pretty tight, 1/4 of the treads should be out, or it will stall randomly on u and you loose all the Power shit, Mainly the PS. Its scarry

To tune it you much turn the screw comming out the back. Farther out less air is left it, but it goes off under less gas, tighter you turn, the noise gets a little louder and it is much better for the car. My friend has a EVOms CAI , much better than AEM, but it helps the sound a good bit

I'm with you. I have AEM and Forge DVR, and it sounds sweet. It's definately loud enough to turn heads. Everytime I take it to the dealer, one of the techs comes out and tells me how sweet it sounds.
