I HAVE A DUMP VALVE ON MY CAR :D

didnt even have a clue until the guy that used to own my car had seen me on here and emailed me to ask how it was!!

i did wonder what the noise was but presumed it was just the turbo!!!!

That sure is a dump valve m8, same as mine from k tec. To check it out get to about 3000rpm in third, stereo off and windows down, back of the throttle real quick and yo shud hear the familiar woosh, although not too loud. Basically works on a vacuum system to stop the turbo from stalling when changing gear, lets air back to turbo to keep it spinning, no real gains in BHP but your car should accelerate quicker cos the turbo keps spinning and doesn't need to pick up as much from start.
