    DUMP VALVE

    Hello Guys, im a virgin to this site and the world of turbos. I bought an astro turbo sri 2003. Neva had a turbo before, always just a 6 cyclinder.
    i have always loved the sound of a blow off valve, but need help on how to install one. im from australia, and have been to a few turbo joints, but they dont seem to have a clue, which makes two.
    i want to get one but without ordering over the net. whats the best one to get. can i use a turbosmart.
    Also where is the original blow off valve, and what do u guys mean by a spacer in the old valve to stop it working. An how do i coneect the hoses to it.
    thanks :roll:

    Hiya - use the search facility on this site - search for dump valve - there is loads of information and discussion about this topic. Every angle covered.

    Also look through this technial area - there was a post only just recently about this.

    We used to have an Archive section which seems to have dissapeared now this used to have a very good dump valve discussion.

    This may not sound very helpful, but as T-bone says if you use the sites search facility you should be able to find all the info you need as its been discussed so many times, in fact there are a couple of threads going at the mo

    thanks 4 the info guys. c10kem or if anyone had detailed info on how to fit one it would be greatly appreciated. Also if this system is a plumback system that is meant 2 recirculate the air, what will happen to the air im expelling to the atmosphere(from the dump valve that is!)
    Sorry to sound stupid again, but on low revs, like if im at 40km and speed up abit in 5 gear, i get a whooshing or whistling sound what is that???
    thanks again for the info from everyone
