    Is your keyboard broken?

    Anyway, no, a dump valve 'dumps' excess and unused boost pressure from a turbo. No turbo, no valve.

    No, you can't.

    If there's no Turbo, what's it going to dump, and where would you fit it?

    Unless he's referring to those toilet-rolls you attach to the exhaust.

    you can tell him you can fit an eletronic one to a non turbo car....but you'll sound like a complete **** though

    heard someone at the lights and even when he wasn't booting the thing gave off the same "dump" noise could tell its fake!

    I think you've missed the point.
    "heard someone at the lights and even when he wasn't booting the thing gave off the same "dump" noise could tell its fake!"

    He was giving it no welly at all, but it was giving off the dump sound. The supra is giving a big of gas, ergo spooling the turbo, and dumping pressure.

    And the electronic ones are gay and stupid.

    Have you got one?

    a dump valve? yes, an electronic one? no.

    I have the same one as on the supra (Turbosmart Super Sonic) on my RS turbo

    Right, so what's your point about telling if it's electric or not?

    well its not the fact he was next to me its also because it was a rover 200 with the 1.4 badge still stuck on the back.

    Not to mention i was in a 1.2 corsa back then and he wasn't redlining his car we were both driving normally side by side still and there was still a massive dump sound coming from it
