    Dump valve and power pipe

    Long time member first time poster....

    ive got a totally standard astra gsi and im maybe looking to get a dump valve, ive pretty much decided on a collins unit if i buy one but i just want to know should i get a metal power pipe or is it safe to leave the standard pipe on?

    just worried it will expand to much or something to go pop

    cheers

    Rubber one is safer than a solid metal one, but looks a bit of a mess once it has been cut and a t-piece added. The rubber one isn't going to break while running standard boost.
