it wont give you that much, maybe 5hp...
it basically keeps the valve open in your exhaust, therefore allow'n better flow/sound...??? ( those ?'s are for affirmation, not doubt)
go under your car, and on the drivers side, next to the exhaust pipe coming out of the muffler has a rubber hose. if u pinch that hose shut, you will enjoy the bad ass sound ur car makes during intial startup and during higher speeds/rpm...
hope that helps,,,

you need to mention that this is also a special case with the R32/TT 3.2 exhaust which has a flap that activates at below a certain rpm and speed to lessen the noise that comes out...

i thought i did that, but ok...
from a post, i think it requires over 3500 rpm, and/or 45mph+ in order to open, which lead'n to more noise and power...
mine is now open constantly, and from a recent post, a dyno was done, and showed only a 5HP increase, I think? hey, i'm to lazy to go back and check, but it's around here somewhere...
ok, i found it..

No, it's been dyno proven to add +5HP in one instance, and +10lb/ft of tq. in another. HP and TQ are two different things, so let's not confuse the issue at hand.
IMHO, it's FIVE FREE HORSEPOWER and TEN FREE LB/FT OF TORQUE, so why wouldn't you do it, lol.

I closed off the line the 1st day of ownership. I knew about that valve even before anyone in this discussion began talking about it. I talked to a VW tech who told me he had to install them, which meant that they weren't shipped here like that...?! Validity of that, uncomfirmed. I will believe it when I see it...
However, I know it can be remove by a VW Tech (physicaly and from computer program), that is if you have a buddy who's a VW tech...under the table...
Hey, 5hp is 5Hp!!!
As for torque, 10 more lbs works for me!
PS: When did I confuse HP and torque??? I don't think it's possible

Re: (H2O2H)

Dynos don't lie. Head over to the R32 forum and check the threads. Just having less backpressure down low is good for a +10 lb torque increse. So the clamp does what it says. Research a little before you blast something.

Re: (H2O2H)

I hope you didn't take my post as a flame, just that the original poster doesn't have an R32 according to his info, less he try this mod that on a car other than the R32 or Audi TT 3.2, I just wanted to clear that up. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
