    Hi guys well as I have boost issues i'm just looking at every angle

    I took my Forge 007P off tonight and put on my standard DV to make sure it wasn't leaking.

    First thing i noticed is my standard DV was doing the chatter which indicated I put it the wrong way round which is fine. Now when I turn my 007P is just makes the same sounds regardless of which way round it is, why is this?

    Now when I took my 007P off I noticed that it was very easy to push the piston in, so looked on the forge website to read this:

    Now mine is loosing boost and dumps very easily, just wondering if this could be my problem. Has anyone else changed the spring on theres with similar mods i.e stage 1 remap?

    Thanks

    I went through various springs on mine to decide which was best... Stage 1 and 2 I used the yellow spring...was the way forward for me... I think the IHI had a red spring.. but not sure... :)

    Seems to be an endless debate, I still use the standard green spring on my hybrid with no apparent issues? :confused:
