View Full Version : 710N DV News: Chipped? They rip.

Hey guys, Im in the process of installing a Baileys DV

Here is some backstory:

I bought my car with a Neuspeed chip that the previous owner installed. It was a moderate chip that increased performance to fun levels. Within a few months of ownership, I decided to get a GIAC, hearing that they were much more aggressive. They are -- they make the car a blast to drive.

However, I got the infamous honking DV soon after installation. GG new boost levels.

Long story short, I bought a Baileys and tried to install it tonight (my vac line ripped, whoops, Mr. Bailey was too big for that slut.) and to my surprise when I took out the old honker, I found that it was a 710N. The previous owner put it in when he chipped it and forgot to tell me.

So, 710Ns are silly. Only use them in a jam of no money. I mean yeah it was probably in there for awhile, I know some of you will argue that. Still, temporary fix ONLY.

ANYWAY, anything else I should do while my car is up and slightly disassembled on the intake side? N75 Race perhaps??

My stock dv was holding fine until i broke it myself by accident. My 710n (knock on wood) is doing superb at the moment. Been chipped for like 25k miles....

my 710n worked great, and never had any issues, and they are alot cheaper as well since you can pick them up new for less than $35....

there have been tests done, and most prefer the 710n over aftermarket...

I had my 710n in while chipped for about 15k miles. Thought it was bad and bought a bosch 110 replacement. I then tested the 710n it was fine.
I just left the 110 in as that was the MTM recommendation. From Saab Viggen, Porsche Turbo and others.

710N is a good part. I've had one go on me, but you can buy what - five of them for the price of one aftermarket one?

I had my 710N for 2 months on 0.8 bars....Worked ok....Chipped the car and ran 1.3 bars...The car worked fine for 2 days....After that time 0.9 bars...I'm like wtf?Started testing the maf,was ok...The n75,was ok...So i thought i had a boost leak somewhere in the pipes...Everyone kept telling me check the dv,and i was like no way the dv is brand new and it's an 710N...Couldn't find any leaks,and a night,I was very angry,so went outside and changed the 710N with my old stock,and there!!!That was my problem!!So,no love for the 710N here..

I should mention that i never drive my car normally,every second of driving it is like i am on the track....Maybe that was the reason....
