    The only thing that running ritch can really do to your engine is wash oil off of your cylinder walls. This means that you may have to change your oil a little more offten, but not much.

    Well, I just got mine!! I am just interested in the theory behind changing the springs and what the process is like and what to look for when taking it out for a test drive. Which spring for which power level, etc....

    I use the blue spring. It is extremely easy to change them and the washers/shims are equally simple. Forge do give GREAT customer support.

    One twist of the body and you can access the spring.

    I wouldn't describe what I had as a stumble - it would not make boost beyond 4psi as the BOV was opening! Changed the spring and no probs - if you go too stiff on the spring you will not vent and get compressor stall.

    You essentially have to match your spring tension to the boost levels you are running.

    Thanks, I think I got it now. The guy I am getting mine from basically had the same mods as me and he said he had the medium spring installed in it. I am sure I will get a better feel for it when I get it installed and take it out for spin.

    I just installed mine today, and I CAN notice some differences...

    Shifting is a LITTLE, not very noticable at all, sloppy.

    Sometimes the RPMs will bump up like 100-200RPMs when I'm shifting (after I let off the clutch)...

    No big deals tho, but it's definately worth it! BTW, I got a Forge.

    Now, tonite I need to install my MBC that I got in the mail today! Today was a great day! Forge BOV and MBC came in the mail, not to mention how beautiful it is outside.

    you can also order them directly from forge ...

    you will have to also have to factor in sales and import tax in with the forge if you order it from the UK...

    note the fine print...

    Prices do not include shipping. You will be contacted to confirm shipping cost BEFORE your card is charged. If you have any questions or concerns please call FORGE on 01452 380999
    it will probably be closer to $175

    Note, I ordered from Forge's website (and it looked like everything was coming from the UK) - but Forge USA (in Florida) sent me my valve with no outrageous shipping charges. Loved the whole experience!
