Hi All
New on here and i was looking for some advice
i am looking to fit a dump valve on my R26 F1 230 and have seen that miltek do one for about 166.00 but have noticed that there are a number for sale on ebay for about 100.oo
So what to look for ?
what to stay away from?

i like the sound of my Forge dump valve... quite cheap and came with all the things needed for fitting including blanking plate.......howver if you want a chirp sound rather than a ppppshhhhh (air) sound then get a SSQV youtube them mate they all sound pretty much the same boost will make a little diff to the sound on the SSQV

Are you saying you want to sell yours? If so how much? does it also have the blanking plug to replace the recirculating valve or is that not needed?

Hey
thanks for the reply
I have seen the forge ones
i see some of the kits come with a blanking plate for the recirculating valve.
Does this have to be used or can i leave the standard one in situ and just fit the BOV?
Where abouts is the recirculating valve positioned as i can seem to see it.
Cheers
Simon

Ok guys ive had engine cover off to have a look at the job all seems very straight forward except for the 3rd bolt on bottom of recirculation valve.. so will the bolt come out without the need to remove any other engine parts? i dont want to start and then find i cant finish
Cheers

may have to remove the air pipe from the turbo to the box for extra room but with the right tools you wont need to move anything
