    remove standard OE dump valve and replace for aftermarket??

    just wondering if its possible to remove the standard dump valve as fitted to the z20let turbo units and fit one in place (with one that makes a noise)

    I dont really want a baileys one on a t piece etc / near the top hat.

    I want one mounted right near the turbo.


    Pics if possible

    afaik it cant be removed as its part of the turbo,

    only option is a bailey style one, where you put it is up to you though, could be nearer the IC if you wanted,

    Yeah you can blank it off but some people including me have had problems with them and others havent. Best of trying the search bar to get a better idea mate and how to blank it off.
