    Forge recirculating valve.

    Howdy. Just wondered if any1 had any thoughts/ info on these
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FORGE-RECIRCUL...item414d49f14f. Are they worth getting and do they make a difference etc. Also will they fit on the side of a standard lel turbo? As always any input would be great as i might buy 1 in the very near future. Thanx!

    ^ Or how about both Forge & Collins.

    Smooth gear change and loud as hell ... the best of both worlds.

    had a collins but sold it the other day. I liked it but did get anoying after a while imo.
    Plus the Mrs bought me a s/s power pipe but didn't have the dv spout on it. I'm only sayin the forge recirc valve cos i think the diaphram has split on the orginal 1. I take it they don't dump and they r quiet??? i want the stelth approach! lol

    Yep Forge is silent and IMO gives a better dump/smoother dump than the OE one.

    i have got one of these and a collins fitted and the car is great!! forge valve is definatly better than OE and wont break when u run higher boost!!!

    easy to fit too!! one of the cap heads is a bit of a pain to remove, you will need an alan key with the end cut down to remove it, defo not a hard job just a tab fiddly in places, make sure you get the dump port facing the correct way or its pointless!!!!!
