    Fitting an aftermarket dump valve to the Z20LET is not good for the power as the standard setup uses a re-circulating valve rather than a blow-off type. However if you want one just for the psst noise then someone like demon tweeks should be able to sort you out mate
    Europa Blue cabriolet turbo...now with VXR turbo, collins dump valve and a large number of Courtenay hoses

    Or alternatively get a cone filter. There are mixed reviews about them though.....

    i put a bailey on my GSi after some thought though, alot of people say not to bother but i thought why not, even if only for a while (noise does get heads turning).
    some people get running problems but i have had none .

    Same with mine, before i put my dv on i was told to leave the oem one connected as some people have running problems when dissconected, as i said i have had no problems running both (using a non return valve)
    hope this helps
