    Removed vacuum box and boost solenoid today

    Far better, its cured all the jerkiness that i kept getting rid of then it was comes back! so no more turbo chatter as well! just plumbed the OE dump valve in with the bit for the throttle body and cut all the other crap out!

    So do you just get the pipe running from the OE DV and put it straight onto a t-piece from the fpr?

    Done mine last summer lol as was sick of the jerky half throttle business so pee'd it all off, no one was too fussed back then but now people are doing it left, right and centre and feeling the benefits for themselves..
