    New Guy - Coupe Turbo!

    Hi folks, just got a coupe turbo on tuesday, it lovely, well chuffed with it. its 3 yr old blue bad-boy, 24k and absolutely immac condition.

    Got the regal power pipe and dump valve and just fitted it, was expecting it to be louder than it is, is this normal or have i fitted it wrong??? As instructions said, find a breather hose on the back of the engine bay and follow to "pop off valve" (?) on turbo, which i did and i inserted the 'T' piece just behind the airbox on the rubber joining bit.

    Any feed back to put my mind at rest would be great!

    Anyone recommend air filters, should i go for a induction kit or just put a panel filter in the std airbox?

    Cheers folks....

    Welcome to the site. The Bailey valve will be quite quiet. You can make it louder by disabling the standard valve, Legoman is your person to speak to about this, as he sells the needed equipment

    Panel filter and de-restrict the airbox is the easiest way for alittle more induction roar. I prefer K&N myself, PVD foam filter @ £25 is the cheapest though I think

    Welcome to the site.

    I don't think Turbo's like induction kits, can suck in hot air from the engine. I'd stick with the air box/air filter set-up.
    de-restrict it
    and
    Fit a larger inlet pipe

    re: New Guy - Coupe Turbo!

    Cheers guys, was thinking of just sticking with the std air box, ill be looking about for a replacement filter and enlarged feed pipes soon. it could do with a bit of an induction roar, the car is soooo quiet.

    it needs to go back to the garage tho, they locked the stereo for me, which was nice of 'em, they said i had to wait for it to clear, but i left it for about 3hrs last nite and it still didnt clear. luckily ive got a dump valve to listen to....

    it is a bit of a beast, fastest car ive had yet (its my 8th car and im only 20!) I love the torque of it, even at 30mph in 5th, it pulls like a wee trooper!
