Is not the AA valve just a Bosch unit?

It is a 6 speed manual.

The valve is an AA unit but i also believe that Bosch actually makes it

Just an update, due to work, I have not had a chance to perform any type of test on the bypass valve. I hope to remove it and take a look at it this weekend.

Ok did a vacuum test on it today.

I hooked up a hand vacuum pump with a built in gauge. Created 20lbs of vacuum and it dropped to 0 in about 5 seconds. My thought would be that there should be no drop at all. Any thoughts? I am email AA about these results also.

Still waiting for a reply from AA. Does anybody else know if there should be a vacuum drop or not?
