      cheers
      The forge dumpvalve comes with a blanking plate which replaces the valve on the turbo! Its best to change it for the best performance out of the dumpvalve! Also it could loose boost if you have both on at the same time!

      The turbo makes the boost so the more the better! If you loose boost then it means the power from the turbo will die off a lot quicker!

      Fitting the blanking plate will let the turbo hold the boost better and will only release threw the dump valve! It just makes things more efficient

      Cut a small bit off the bottom hole of the blanking plate so you can screw the bottom bolt in by hand sit the blanking plate on then tighten it all up

      remove the intake pipe from the airbox, you will be amazed at how much room it frees up. was the only way i could get to the bottom bolt.

      I used a 10mm socket on a swivel joint on a long extension all on a 1/2" drive. I would have preferred to use 1/4" drive but I didn't have a swivel or extension in that size.
