Yup, drop-in replacement for the plastic Bosch valve on the 965 elbow used for the Ruf, Kokeln and other intercoolers that replace the factory recirc valve. Also available in black anodized for $150 new...

But rebuildable and tunable for twice the price of the sealed OEM junk that has a poor reputation for working when new and dies quickly? I thought it was a no brainer after holding the plastic Bosch valve in my hand for 3 minutes - and the Forge is a nice piece.

Here's some random tests by some guy who replaced Bosch valves with Forge on his Audi TT, including charts of boost spikes between shifts with the stock valves etc. http://www.audiworld.com/tech/eng16.shtml
