    Baileys Dump Valve on Z20LET

    Hi, been looking at getting a Baileys Dump Valve for my SRi-T.

    Basically anyone who has a Baileys Dump Valve on a Z20LET, how noisy is it?

    Cheers in advance.

    there are so many different ways of fitting them, i have tryed all ways and what i have found is that if you keep the standerd d/v working the baily is quiet but the car does run smooth, but if you disable the standerd d/v than the baily is louder but the car is jurkey and creates running problems,

    i am now running eds phase 3 with both dump valves working and i am happy with the sound

    hope this helps

    When you say if you have them both running, the Baileys dump valve is quiet, is it quieter than the standard one, noisier or about the same?

    You will be able to hear it.
    Will sound a lot louder with an induction kit on.

    Get one, see if you like it, if not just sell it, sure someone will want one!

    How much louder is yours, now that your running higher boost. Has it made much difference?

    I reckon your induction kit will make it sound a lot louder !.
