My surge valve is currently ran like a normal bov would, t'd off of the tb line. The only problem though, is during normal cruise between 10hg and 0psi you hear it open. Then once you hit boost it closes, it sounds like it does at least. Is this normal? It kind of makes it hard to drive when it comes down to it. Ptb plus an open surge valve makes acceleration super slow. Also, I have the ptb fix set up with my vaccum lines. Any thoughts on the stocker would be benificial, thanks.

Well according to what you said, you have the surge valve t'd into the TB line correct? According to the PTB vacline fix, the surge valve is supposed to be going straight to the solenoid, might want to try that out. Altho there are different ways people do them, i have it going to the solenoid as of now with no probs

Yeah dude, get a spring. I had the same issue. I got a PTP BOV spring and problem solved.

Actually it's set up just like the ptb fix:

im talking about the diagram above that one. instead of t'ing the surgevalve and turbo into the tb/brakebooster, They each go into their own portion of the solenoid, then t the tb/brakebooster into it also. Truthfully im not even sure if the outcome would even change since im no specialist on how these vaccuum deals work, but you might as well give it a try. Mine is exactly like this with an AGP wastegate, and it works like a charm

That's how I had it before, and it would stay closed during cruise, but since my bov solenoid is acting up(going off at random times) I had to run my surge valve directly like a bov. I will just see about ordering that spring to keep that bitch closed!!

I found that the positive and negative battery wires were touching causing Interference. Split them and fixed the prob.
