Just wanted to know where exactly the DV routes to… If i’m not mistaken, diverter valves relocates the air from the turbo and dumps it back into the intake. But when i look at the GTI’s engine bay, i can’t figure out where the dv sends all that air to.

It’s a recirculating valve. Doesn’t dump to atmosphere or the intake, but rather into the compressor side of the turbo.
