Turbo might look good, but without reliable ECU tuning, it aint worth S#$T.

Make sure that whatever turbo kit you buy has a realiable chip to go with it.

Included with the kit is a BOV...my respect leaves this kit already.

But it says the kit "deletes the atmospheric BOV".

In essence, a BPV is a BOV, only it vents back into the system instead of the atmosphere. I think they just have bad wording.

This is what it says -

This kit deletes most emissions related devices such as:

- Crankcase breather recirculation (Breather filter or catch can used)
- Atmospheric BOV - (ATP BOV w/Anti-stall option recommended)

It says it deletes the Atmoshperic BOV but recommends a ATP BOV...

Yeah, I just think it's bad wording. Maybe the ATP BOV actually is plumbed back into the system. I'm not sure. Either way, this is all a moot point b/c they don't have any reliable programming for the kit. Waste of time for most of us.

Good point with the programming but if it was plumbed back wouldn't it be a BPV/DV or considered a hybrid valve BOV/DV if it was plumbed back and still spraying outwords?

I know Cable used to have ATP on his 1.8T and after messing with it for a year and having it custom tuned to get it running right he sold it and moved into a B5 S4. He ended up having alot more time and money tied up into it than just buying a APR or PES stage III

Here's the thing ATP's hardware is fine but their software sucks.
