  • DV not working :(

    iv brought a collins DV and take off pipe fitted as it says in the "how to guides" but when i take it done the road and it comes on boost it brings the light on the codes reading - (low boost pressure) my astras on a 06 plate would the mapping be a bit diff in other year cars cause i know 2 lads whos got DVs on and they never had problems ???

    take it off mate, they are a waste of time and not needed as there is already one on the turbo.

    sounds like you have connected one of the pipes wrong, should have put a t piece in just next the the fuel reg that is under the cross over and then a pipe to go from there to the dv.

                  as already said fella, post up some pics if you can so we can see if you have set it up correctly,

                  never had any problems of juddering with both my baileys and collins dv, have had no fault codes or lights coming on due to it ever, dont suffer any loss of performance either,

                  if you want a dv then get 1, if you dont then dont, any time there is a thread on here about dvs all you get is dont bother its a waste of money,
