      Anyone coming to PVS this year who has a DV?

      I'd like to listen to one before i get one, i had one on the old GSi for a bit but it caused the boost control solenoid to go so bit weary about getting on on the VXR. You had any problems Dave?

                      Its the boost sensor in that pipe.

                        Tbh lads i wouldn't bother with a dump valve, VXR's i've driven are super responsive on and off boost, why jeopardise that with a DV where they can become jerky and slightly more laggy between gears? :?

                        And as for the sound the Baileys DV26 has to be one of the gayest noises about . Go for venturi valve if fitting any at all.

                          Fitting an aftermarket DV to the VXR makes little to no difference to performance feel as the OE unit remains - just adds the audible noise for fun :wink:
