    It may not be for all of the DV's out but it seems that when the car is running an AmD remap when on full boost it lifts the dump valve off its seat and dumps the boost to atmostphere when your still accelerating. This causes hesitiation and a fault to be logged.

    All cars running the AmD remap and std DV have been fine. Any issues with Astra's running the AmD software have now been resolved. It seemed to be a mixture of insecure pipes, after market DV's and on a few we have updated the software to expand air mass signals to cope with the higher boost.

    Any queries please emal AmD sales@amdtechnik.com.

    Craig wastegate chatter sounds good but it will destroy it pretty quick as well.

    Under normal operation it is to control boost, it only chatters when you back of and the boost has no where to go but through the wastegate. A little bit of chatter is ok but loud chatter means the gate boucing on its seat, it wasn't really designed to do this. Eventually you get bits of wastegate cracking and falling off.
