    if all you have done is remove the vacume pipe from it then i suggest connecting it, putting a one way valve in and trying that..

    you will always get a small amount of chatter from it as you have taken the resirc away m8..

    have you just taken the vac line from the resirc and plumbed it to the new DV?

    u will always get some chatter because u have removed the resirc..

    personally i have found th ecar runs better with the resirc connected, without it i get a slight hesitation before the DV dumps but i can live with it..

    blocking off the OEM DV opens up a can o worms on the "it will damage / wont damage the turbo" thing again tho

    so many posts covering it but tbh, i dont think it really matters tbh...

    same as people removing boost solenoid's etc.. some say yes, some say no..

    personally its there for a reason other wise why would VX fit it
