    yes - just run with the Forge/EvoMS on its own - afterall its just an uprated and improved version of the factory rubber diaphragm model

    I went for the EvoMS one but if i were purchasing one again Id opt for the Forge as they are so much easier to fit and maintain - ie different springs available for differing levels of boost

    ive just got the forge one off ebay. i was running forge with collins. but i was curious about running the forge on its own so im doing that now. it seems a lot less jerky when easing off the power but all astras seem to react differently.

    it should run a hell of a lot better with JUST the Forge/EvoMS

    the addition of the aftermarket DV tends to give the jerking etc u mention
