    only prob i have ever had with it is it sticks if the car is ideling for more than 5mins without moving...

    heat causes the piston to expand a bit and sometimes sticks so if you are blocking off OE dv be aware of this problem.

    and i have never lost any power due to it being fitted either but some people have so its really your choice.

    you mean the dump tssshhhh noise>?

    depends on what your car is running really a beleve..

    as a said i have the 26-d..(better spring)as the 26 leaks a bit i think.. sounds just right for me, tho i have blocked of OE valve too mind.. there are trumpet ones out there too that sound louder.. its really up to you..

    what kinda sound you want?

    a few people have started using the HKS dump valve or BOV (blow off valve) and have found these quite good
