i was having a problem with my stock valve sticking during full throttle. i met with john a. the new upsolute rep from nj and we scanned my car and test drove it. the problem is hard to duplicate because it is intermittent, but i am almost positive that is what it was. i got a polished forge valve as an early christmas present(wifey loves me). i hope the problem is fixed.
i will be going to the track this friday to improve on my time. thanks john and andy for the excellent csr service. i would highly recommend either of these guys to deal with.

Re: installed forge dv (wolfsburg_de)

yeah, i was holding out on the dv until it went. i didn't see a need to spend the $ until i needed to. well, i needed to so, christmas came a little early. hopefully i will see 14.2-14.3 this friday. thanks again for the help.
p.s. i will send "it" out on friday/saturday, thanks again for your patience.

Re: installed forge dv (wolfsburg2)

when it comes time to service it, make sure you dont over grease it.
I did and it started sticking almost right away. (doh)... Cleaned it up and put maybe 2 drops of lube on my finger and did the two O rings... Thats all it needed.

Mine needed servicing after about 5 months I guess.

Re: installed forge dv (Cypher2k)

What kind of lube are you using. I have tried white lithium grease (frpm a spray can) and it did not work well. I am currently using some bicycle grease and it is working well.
