    VXR Turbo - oe dump valve dead

    Well i developed a vacuum leak and after changing all of the vacuum pipes was tearing my hair out and a mate of mine that works for VX said to check the oe dump valve - after lots of swearing and skin sizzling this is what i found.....





    Wouldn't mind but the turbo is 6 months old and only covered 2.5k

    that'd be excessive if that were the case?

    I wonder if one of those could be made? is it just a peice of rubber?

    I know.. I asked on zlet a while back and they said you can't buy them. Best thing to do is ask on forums if anyones got one they can sell. Vauxhall might sell them new now as it was a few months back I asked?? Worth a try I suppose...

    I remember reading about 2 years ago that the OE dump valve's werent reliable but that opinion seems to have changed since Courtenay said the Baileys are bad and everyone changed their minds and joined them in agreement.

    Ah well, if it has warranty then you'll get a new turbo

    dont know where i stand as it's one i bought from LMF and i heard rumours that it a vxr turbo was purchased and fitted to a z20let no warranty applies as it technically been fitted incorrectly/used in the wrong application and that a chassis number will be required to prove correct fitment??????

    Out of interest does anybody what make and type the vxr turbo is i.e. is it a kkk03???? Forgive my ignorance but i was told that i may be able to get an uprated kevlar one from someone like turbo technics?

    Go direct to turbo manufacturers? I very much doubt gm make their own turbo's the manufacturer should be able to provide broken down parts.
