    No, a diverter valve is a bypass valve.

    All my friends are German lovers, and being a former German car owner i say no way to them after owning the subies. with my stage 2 03 WRX i pulled on my friends 2000 Stage 2 S4 wagon, and got pulled by my other friends 2001 Stage 2 s4 Sedan... and now that i have an 07 wrx (stock) , i still pull on the wagon, but get pulled by a different 01 S4 sedan. all those races are being all around the board, with the 03 i pulled on both of them up to about 80 then the sedan pulled me back in. and in the 07 im pretty even with the 01 sedan on the highway but down low he gets me.

    now yesterday i raced a B6 S4 ?2005? with the v8 in it on the highway, and he was alone and i had 2 other people in my car and i put 2 legnts on him by 100 then i shut down.


    I dont know if any of that made any sense but i have alot of S4 experience so if you need me to clear anything up let me know...


    (all races were done on a closed course under careful professional supervision with paramedics standing by, don't try this at home kids)

    Oh and a diverter valve is the same thing as a bypass valve, rather than expelling the extra gas to the atmosphere, it diverts it back into the intake. Diverter valves by themselves will not yield any performance gains, just a good idea if you are running more boost. most audi/VW guys go with the forged 007 diverter valve (valveS if your on the 2.7t as there are 2 of them)

    That's what I thought, when my cousin did have the A6 those were one of the few mods he had... some nice diverter valves (they was nice and shiney)...you could hear it release air..

    yeah pretty much, B5 S4's are no joke. They kill a lot of cars they shouldnt be beating, especially in a straight line.

    An embarrasment for us Subie owners, I think :-(
    I don't get how that's an embarrassment. The guy was rocking a 100% stock sti vs a decently modded S4. That would be like me picking on my friends stock S4.

    LOL because just watch the STi guy he shifts at like 3000rpm I mean c'mon. And he like rocks his whole body every time he shifts hahaha he's obviously not a good driver. The video is not about the fact that a modded S4 would stomp a stock STi, it's about the STi guy's driving skills, or lack thereof
