just what is "surging" anyway? how does it feel?
lately i have noticed that when i really get on the gas
i hear and feel kind of a rumble from the car. this is
a 2k a4 1.8t avant with an APR chip, BTW. the rumble
kind of sounds like it's coming from the rear of the
car, and like i said, i can hear and feel it. it is
pretty subtle and i am pretty sure it subsides a bit
once i reach maximum boost. i'mn pretty much just
talking about 4th or 5th gear, here.
again, this is when i really get on the gas. i am kind
of a boost addict and frequently pust the car to max
boost, just for the thrill of it, even if i am going to
back off in just a few seconds.
any ideas what, if anything, this might be? is this
surging? i also heard from a friend big in the VW
scene that there is come kind of valve that wears out
in a year or so in chipped 1.8t cars, perhaps this is it?
