im not sure if i have asked this question b4 or not but is there any down side in performance if you dis connect the recirculating dump valve,

i do love the noise from the turbo wen its disconnected but dont wont to do it if it slows the car down or makes it loose any bhp/performance

Yes mate you really lose boost and power. I will be doing a blanking plate soon so you will be able to do it properly :wink:

That makes sense then as i fitted a DV i made up
and it has dropped by 0.2 BAR with the recirc disconnected
i spent hours looking for a bloody leaking hose!

I'll definately have one, you lose about 0.2 Bar with the re-circ valve disconnected
as i need another T piece to plumb in the DV, Boost gauge and RECIRC all at once!

I got a free T piece off Dave at K-tec so got the ricirc,DV and boost gauge all running sweet.
the power difference is very noticeable(back to normal anyway!)

Met up with Craigy225 aswell had a good natter (his car looks ten times better in the flesh!)
, we spoke with dave and they have big plans coming up so keep an eye out!

Got my free oil change aswell, dead chuffed!

phil :D
