    one way valve question

    ok so a quick question..

    just for shits and giggles a thought i would put a one way valve in the coupe to see if th ecolins sounded any louder..

    just a few things..

    plumbed the valve in and the colins is louder but loads o turbo chatter... is this normal and ok as i have had my OEM and baileys running together for years now.

    valve other way round i lose boost..

    usually im ok with this crap but today im just a bit thick.
    The coupe...ITS ALIVE & back from the dead....again!

    you got a cone filter by any chance

    Same thing happened with mine so i think this is what is causing the turbo's to go pop so often

    im just para about it really..

    I dont have a cone filter but i do have a BMC CDA and the froin panel is missing just now so it could be cause o that..

    i wlways thought it was turbo stall but as a said, that many diff things said about it and i dont wanna start up that old chestnut again about is it or isnt it good for the turbo..

    im prob gonna just put it back and leave it..

    if it aint broke dont fix it my papa always said
