    DV fitted to icemans coupe turbo

    fitted a baileys dv26-d dump valve on Lee's (icemans) coupe turbo for him today, used the one way valve to disable the OE dv and it sounds sweet, thought i would post a video of it for all to see as dont see many z20let dv videos on youtube, here is the link http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=R1gRkC_MyAo

    The previous owner of my car had one installed but then turned off again. He said it affected the performance.
    Is it hassle to get it working or is it best to take it to a garage?.

    Sounds nice, bit more high pitched than mine.

    That sounds sweet, im debating whether to dump valve mine, I know a lot of people hate the sound and the whole dumpvalve idea, seing as the astras oe valve is adequate but its my first turbo and i can't help but crave the sound haha.

    Where did he but the dump valve from mate? and what was needed - just the dump valve and the fitting kit?

    Back in the Vauxhall fold - Astra Turbo & '82 Merc sadly missed, Two VX220's should keep me happy though

    you just need the baileys dv26-d and fitting kit you can buy them from ebay or lmf etc..., also need a 1 way valve which you can buy from halfords for £2.29
