    to be honest mate i've done it several times now chopping and changing it back and forth. And i can safely say that my car pulls a shit load better with it connected, but thats just my experience with my mk5. Asked Chris at regal if it was bennificial to do and he reckons it's a load of bollocks.
    But on the other hand some people have said that power is delivered smoother when it's done. So i guess it's up to you really, try it and see what happens!

    It's only really any smoother with the rear BCS disconnected, if your rear BCS is faulty.
    However by removing the rear BCS and all of the vacum lines with it, you reduce the components that can cause issues.

    It's not really a performance mod, more of a reliability mod.
