Well i got the box this morning at work and it was well packaged with detailed instructions. so i installed it and went through all the processes that it said for adapting and test drove it. Before teh valve i had a turbo underboost DTC and the car jerked a couple times under 3/4-full boost so i decided to replace it with the IPD valve over stock. I test drove the R and got about a mile from the shop limp mode and set a DTC for overboost well i was baffled for a moment. i then did a hard battery reset for 20min and hooked it all back up again. Wow what a differance smoth boost through the gears and power is great. i bought the car used with 84,000 miles on it and it had the underboost since i got it 2 weeks ago so i belive what happend was teh car adapted to the low boost and when it got the new valve it was like um no we have too much boost lol. anyways GREAT product good company and they did free shipping and included two ipd decals becasue it wa son backorder when i ordered it. Thanks to the guys at IPD for the great product <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">
