  • Panel filter/DV question?

    Hi all,

    A few memebers on here have persuaded me into taking the plunge to go for a panel filter for my VXR. Atm I can't here my standard DV at all and am told it could be due to the fact that the engine has only done 500 miles and that I have still got the standard panel filter on!

    If I was to change this to an ITG panel filter (I am using ITG because I had great results on my clio 172 cup with their Maxogen) why would I hear the dump valve, is it something to do with the vacuum?

    Cheers
    Mark

    Well i fitted a K&N panel filter at the weekend and i can hear the turbo whoosh and the dump valve hiss now, although it is subtle.
    I wouldnt want it any louder, but it makes some interesting noises now.

      Same here.

      I think it would get pretty annoying after a while if i had an aftermarket dv!

            Remapped the ECU with the Bluefin Superchip and fitted the K&N for sound effects.
            Very pleased with the result.

              I got a map too.

              It gives the standard zaust a sucking noise as you floor it and the odd pop when you change up.

              Bloody lav it lol!

                    I remember Tiff Needel taking the corsa against the 197 on track and he was going on about the amazing sucking sound from the turbo, but I have never heard it yet!!!

                          Going from Standard to Stage 2 the difference in sound is amazing. Guessing its because of the panel filter and the Map. But if you want sound i would reccomend it!
