    Dump valve

    Hi all when i brought my baileys dump valve i got a spacer with it to put in the oe dump valve i didnt fit it cause i didnt no what it was for now i no is it ok to do & if i do will it affect anythink else? All that you do is take the oe dump valve off take the spring out & replace it with the spacer & then the baileys will sound louder is this true?

    dont bother m8..

    go get a £2 one way washer valve from halfords and fit it to the OEM vac line on the OEM DV..

    trying to remove the spring will take well over a hour and ull lose more skin and blood than its worth, where as the one way valve takes 30secs to do

    and yes it will make the DV louder because you are directing all the presure to that now and not splitting it between 2 valves
    The coupe...ITS ALIVE & back from the dead....again!
