    How do I remove Bailey dump valve

    My Cab turbo currently has a Bailey dump valve fitted to it and I would like to remove this and replace it with the standard rubber pipe. I obviously know how to remove the power pipe etc but my question is I dont know if the person who fitted it has fitted a 1 way valve or blanking valve so how do I find out if they have, where would it be etc? As much detail as possible please as am quite a novice at this or alternatively if anyone has the Bailey fitting instructions please let me know and hopefully I can work backwards.
    I spoke to vauxhall today who told me there would be no one way valve etc and I could just change the pipes over but I dont believe them.

    if you look at the valve on the side of the turbo (underneath the boost control solenoid) you should see wether there is a one way valve on the vac line or not, check that first, take a pic and post it up if u like

    simple...
    take air box off, and give the car a rev... IF u hear a tsssssssssssss before the Bailys dumps then ur OEM dv is stil running.. IF not then the chances are theres EITHER a one way valve fitted somewhere in teh vac line between the trubo and the rear BCS... OR a spacer has been fitted to the OEM DV.
    The coupe...ITS ALIVE & back from the dead....again!
