    Addition to car

    Well.. im pleased to say that i now have a Baileys dump valve DV26 on my car.. along wth the blue courtney hoses

    i like the sound of it.. cos its not too prominent but you can still hear it when you put the foot down...

    next plan of action is to get the rest of the blue courtney hoses

    so... for the show on sunday the wheels have been refurbished and car is also gettin a cheeky machine polish for too..

    i hated the baileys on the GSi, it was the first thing i changed after i crashed it (Irish i know...but thats when funds allowed it) went for the forge and it sounded amazing

    I also had loads of problems with my baileys releasing pressure when the throttle was open, it should only release pressure when the Throttle is closed and your comign off the power (if that makes sense.. i know what i'm trying to say lol)

    prob with the earlyer baileys DV's was the spring in them was quite frankly shite!

    newer versions came with uprated springs designed to keep the valve shut for longer ( higher boost pressures etc )

    as said i miss mine as its a diff sound to the colins but at the same time i like the colins..

    if i had my own way i wouldnt have any on it but im no aloud to take it back off!
    the wean loves the sound
