    Default Swirl valve slow

    Hi all just got the wife to start car while i had a look at the swirl valve, it slowly moved left 2 right and when she turned off the car is quickly moved right 2 left don't know if this is normal i was expecting it to move quickly l-r. and does it move while driving because i do feel it is sluggish before turbo kicks in then it rips your head off.

    It's normal. And if you accelerate it will go back from right to left. All this is normal.

    the swirl flaps are closely monitored so i wouldn't worry if their was any issue a warning would tell you.

    It depends on the acceleration. Put your wife to accelerate fast from idle to 2500-3000 rpm and have a look.
