Re: Can the new APR v2 be used w/ a N75 J valve? (turbovw18)

i was running my N75 J w/ the regular APR 93 and was quite pleased. i didnt know if the update was supposed to do away w/ the need for an N75...

Ahhhhhhh, whatever. Drive mine and tell me what you think. Unless 5psi with the APR 93 oct program is normal with the ECS/H valve.
Anyway, YES, the J valve with APR V2.0 93, or 100, program rocks!! I have a 2.5" DP, CAI, and J valve. Getting 22psi spikes, settling to 20, then smoothly tapering off. For those who get soft limp with the ECS (and there are LOTS of us), the J valve is the current "miracle cure". Definitely go for it http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I've never hit limp with my ECS valve on either the v1.1 93 or the v2.0 93. If you have a full exhaust that could be a different story as it is twitchy then. The J has less of a spike, but holds more boost towards redline. It should be fine, but you never know.

well I have personal experience and his car runs at a tad bit higher than 5psi with the ECS n75....more like 21-22psi..most of these valves seem to be car based...meaning how a certain car reacts to it...just try it out and if doesn't work try something else...yes the unfortunate trial and error theory...

Actually I think it is because he has a turbo back and you don't. The H doens't cause problems on APR software with a stock exhaust 99% of the time.

Actually, I only have a 2.5" DP with the factory cat back. My ECS worked great with the stock DP, then overboosted with the 2.5". Overboosting is very common with the ECS/H, APR 93, and some form of aftermarket exhaust. That's why I'm such a proponent of the J valve.
Also, the comment about being "car based" is pretty correct. I have noticed that my 2003 is very touchy compared to other years. I, personally, could not get a Boostvalve to work correctly at all. I know how to use them, and I simply could not get it to keep me out of soft limp either. I, along with some other 2003 folks, also have problems with hard limp comming on when setting/resuming the cruise control. Oh well, go with the J

APR V2 93&100 octane, N75 (H and J), both give no overboost problems

Colin - I have about the same setup as you - I have an 02 jetta and the only time I hit a soft limp (haha) was on a cool crisp morning with the 1.1v apr 93 w/ the ECS "H"valve. I haven't seen a day like that since I updated. Actually, I am changing to the J valve to see how it works tonight. I'll keep you posted....PEACE http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I'm not sure what version of APR 93 I have (how do you tell? I purchased in Jan 03).
Anyway..I have the 'H' valve and get limp all the time. Mostly on partial throttle accelleration.
Definitely limps more when the air is crisp and cool .
Perhaps I'll try the 'J' valve..

You have v1.1 and on the 337 you have a slightly more open exhasut, so the H will have a tendency to cause limp. Get the J and it should help.

The FL APR rep (per se, not officially) is here in Orlando. Send me an IM and I'll pass on the info.
