    Dissapointed

    Big thanks to Coutenay for fitting my dump valve, Green panel filter And de-restricing and fitting the large inlet pipe to the air box.

    Coming on boost feels more aggressive now which i like and a litle more roar from the engine.

    But im so dissapointed as ive just spent £120 on the dump valve and fitting kit which expels hardly any noise at all . Yes the standard r/c valve is still working but im just really pissed off that nothing come out the baily valve.

    Also i was especting more turbo whistle coming through the air box but its still quite.

    Any way Courtenay are really helpfull and its nice knowing they are always there to help, So bring on the stage 1

    the only way you will here it louder is by not using the original valve, or by partly restricting it with a one way valve. this is du to the turbo not really running a high pressure. i have a cone filter on mine and it sounds very good, and you can hear what the turbo is doing.

    trust me it will be louder on the outside

    and what ever you do dont disconnect the OEM one regardless of wanting more whooosh as it causes running problems

    get a bigger map on it with more boost and you will hear it more

    Yeah they did explain to me about that, im going to leave it as it is but it is very quite, they have positioned it pointing towards the back and down, i might move it facing up over the rocker cover?
