ZZP Performance 1.4 Bypass valve spring

Hey guys i just wanted to let you know that as of now i replaced the stock spring in my 1.4 and i have to admit it sounds way better then before. i also have an AEM air intake in it so that also helps it sound better. before the spring swap it was still pretty quiet. i do recommend having a buddy to help you since when it's time to put the spring in home you can have them hold it in position while you screw it in place. this is not a performance mod but just something to help make driving more fun. just so you know the gold spring is the zzperformance spring. they look the same but it felt a little stiffer then the stock one

so i recommend having a buddy with you since taking out the spring is easy but putting it back isn't lol. so the tool that really helped me out was a flex extender. it lets you bend it what ever way you need to. if you also go to youtube you can check out how to change your blow off valve. and look for a video that has a green sonic on it. that tells you how to do it. i did mine with my intake on it
This one?

I have one of those for sale!
I have one also, just haven't installed it yet.I also have a Forge Wastegate Actuator to be installed as well.
I was going to put it on my new turbo but my tuner says they are "a waste of money because the factory valve is superior. And it won't work correctly on my car." Which I'm assuming is false, because some people on this forum have a BOV. I just think he doesn't have a tune made up for them.
Good bet

That Wastegate actuator makes a big difference. It made a bigger difference than the catless downpipe I had. Holds about 22 pounds of boost consistently.
I am waiting to take the Bomb down the strip before any other mods. I am trying to document as I go. I will probably put both Forge products on this summer.
if you can please tag me in your post so i can see your progress
I'll try and remember, but I have CRS disease.
