    You need a top hat mod with a dump valve take off or chav/gay valve as a lot of people like to call them

    Just search corsa vxr dump valve online

    Planning to go stage 3/3.5 eventually

    You already asked this back in February;

    The answer is still the same as everyone told you back then;

    - The car already has a recirc valve.
    and
    - On some cars you could fit a dump valve to get the noise but on the Corsa it will confuse the ECU and ultimately make the car run crap and slower
    therefore
    - Buying an open cone filter is the only way to get the noise you want.

    The cone filter is about 45 quid off ebay;

    Personally I like to carry a trapped spirit around in my passenger seat surrounded by a summoning circle of holy salt.
    I attach a negatively charged ectoplasm prod to the gear lever and with the windows down when I change gear, an exquisite booooooo can be heard from my car.

    So what is a wastegate acuator and why di djames may say it is what you need to make the wush dusshh sound. her ei sht evideo go to 1:18 onwards he starts talking about ferrari getting rid of the 'pa chu' sound like you get is subaru imprezzas. Whats with all the goofy rpelies btw? And i know i asked thi sbefore mate i di dsay that in the first post on this thread and i appareicate all the helpful replies also.

    TBH ive been told so many different htings just dont know what the hell to do but atleast it isnt expensive or complicated to do i hope.

    This sounds complicated htough: On some cars you could fit a dump valve to get the noise but on the Corsa it will confuse the ECU and ultimately make the car run crap and slower
    therefore

    I just want to buy a part that wont effect anythign negitivly, and be able to rmvoe if if i need to when i go to sell the car but in the meantime it does whta i need which is make thta cool noise...

    Dont really want to share htis vid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEMFFHQdmS0 as i do not want to get the wrong type of noise a sim not sure this is whta im looking for but all i could find. Apprently he just had the Recirc valve pipe disconnected. I dont even know what that is or what it looks like...

    I want it to make a cool dusshhh wooossh sound does it happen every gear change? Or just when the exhaust decides to pop and bang i am a bit confused?

    ^ The car in that video has an open cone fitted so gives the "tsssh"/whoosh when changing gear. But for some reason he has also disconnected a pipe from the recirc valve which is causing the "duh-duh-duh-duh" noise...this is bad and will confuse the ecu/make it run like crap (similar to what a dump valve will do)

    Again, just buy the air filter i linked to. It will give you the sound you need. You don't need to mess about with anything else. You'll get the noise anytime you lift off the accelerator.
