sorry dude but i'm not wrong. you admit it doesn't work by suggesting that
if you only crack it, you avoid the cel.

it's very well documented that the maf / ecu setup of the a4 is designed to
work with a bypass or diverter valve. the ecu needs to account for the air
that is escaping to atmosphere.

any ofrum you search, any tuner you speak to, and any seller of bypass /
blowoff valves will say the same [check turboxs's site, the only bpv hey
sell if for metered air setups like the audi].

sell it on a honda forum and buy my adjustable hyperboost so i can get a new
apr. or just get a 710n valve which is just as good [or better] than an
fancy aftermarket valve, albeit with a shorter lifespan due to the diaphragm
failure every 20-30k.
