    no dissadvantages that I know of and not many advantages (well not that you'll notice).
    The advantage is supposed to be when u deaccelarate it keeps the turbo spinning thus preventing turbo lag! But like i said you probally would'nt notice it.
    The best advantage is the noise!

    All Z20LET have standard dump valves built in. If you want to fit a aftermarket dump valve they do have the advantage of a cool noise but you can have driveability problems if not fitted correctly. Personally i would just stick with the standard DV , drives nicer in my opinion.
