          Welcome To Online

          Personally i don't have a dump valve, know a lot of people who have had problems after fitting them, but in saying that there are people who have them and dont have any problems,

              As Jase said mate, that is always a gd start. I will be going down this route when i get back from holiday.

              I've got a baileys dv and its been totally fine, was a 2nd hand one as well with the courtney sport pipe connecting it.

                first mod is order some owners club decals

                Debadge the back bar the vxr and get a good wax detail done.

                Then a few little bits/touches -

                Then id go for springs and RARB as this will transform the car, plugs and filter, brake ducts and dot 51 fluid.

                Get used to the car then remap and turbo back system and intercooler.
