    Question Turbo chatter with K&N??

    As above, at low revs get a chattering noise when i let off, is this a good thing or bad thing. Ive read so many different opinions!?!

    So should i take it off or leave it on?

    And how come this started when i put an open cone on?

    Cheers

    The chatter will always be there, you just can't hear it. The cone just acts like a megaphone for your engine, amplifying the sound.
    Up to you whether you like it or not, I had a K&N 57i on mine and thought it sounded horrible.

    People say turbo stalls bad....

    Ive not got a dumpvalve, blocked the recirculation valve off too, it chatters like mad and dumps very loud... Turbo's still boosting to 1.7bar and holding 1.4bar.

    Its all stories, the noise is fine. As buckle said your cone is amplifying the sound.

    Just sticking the cone on wont make your turbo chatter, its always there like said, just the airbox does a real good job of quietning everything down so we think theres no noise there. I personnaly loved the noise of the filter when flooring it, sounded great

    He's not talking about the dv tho lol, if the oe dv has been spaced off then the turbo chatters alot more anyway, is that what you've done mate?

    i had a spacer in my oe valve which made the chatter sound quite loud even tho it was no worse than with the airbox just the cone was exhagerating the noise not making it chatter more

    I think a lot of people dont understand chatter. I bet you have not got chatter but just the standard recirc doing its buisness
