  • Dump Valve, Worth It?

    I keep reading about problems with dump valves, more so than people that have got them working right!

    Are they worth having, i like the noise but after reading all ther reviews etc. just doesnt seem worth it.

    Help?

          wantted one baddly, finally got one took it strieght off after about a week....

          made the car judder when crawling in traffic. waste of money, could speed the money on something like a rarb which is more worth while an you will feel the benifits more...

          and the sound, had mine when i got stage 3 so running more boost, an a wasp could fart louder.. because you have the rc valve on the turbo, not much point having a dv if you dont blank off the rc valve.

          i know there are quite afew people on here that had one an took it them back off.
