Just swapped my tcv out for the ARD one because of the upcoming mods I'm doing. Mileage is unknown but the car has 89k on when I took it off but i dont know if it was ever replaced before. Looks like new.

$25 shipped in the US.

I thought everyone's been saying the pierburg ones are better than the ipd/ard "heavy duty" tcvs?

I don't know if they are better they all do the same thing. Lucky who sells the ARD one will tell you himself there really is no need to change it unless your tcv is failing. Some people say you should when upgrading your turbo which I'm going to be putting a 19t in my car at some point so I figured why not replace the tcv before hand.

They're not the same. All the HD TCV are MAC solenoids and it seems they all cause boost spike issues. I don't think I've seen anyone on SS not switch back to the stock TCV pretty quickly after installing a MAC solenoid.

OP might want to hold on to the stock unit instead of selling it.
