I removed my turbo diverter valve today inc solenoid and stretched my alta stiffy spring by 4mm and fitted an aluminium blow off vale same as Forge type and re fitted the results were amazing  turbo pull was much better I gave it a long road test and no EML light came on brilliant results. Just thought I would share info in case anyone was thinking of doing it. The car pulls so well now.

Did you much benefit in the Alta Stiffy Spring? Seems like a worth while little job

To be honest jake I fitted the spring ages ago to hold a little more boost. I think the spring is a little over priced to be honest but since I've combined it with the blow off adapter it's great but I did also stretch it a further 4mm and it's going really well power delivery is so much better.

Checkout the items for sale as I'm trying to sell off these specific mods. Yes the spring helps but as the valve is plastic it can be prone to failure and the job it does is very important!

The piston type one I'm selling is much better, and the BoV helps to avoid the turbo from stalling
