    Changed Bailey for HKS and need help. Cars Stalling.

    Hi. Iv just bought a new HKS SSQV 3 to replace the Bailey DV. 1st test run went well went out for about 30mins holds boost alot better. Then went out about 1 hour later. Was driving and went from 2nd to 3rd changed about 2500rpm and as the revs dropped between gears it cut out. the TC light then stayed on. Plugged in my op-com and cleared the code which has never returned. the car still keeps stalling, it does it more when its warm and been hard in boost. The DV is has the vac hose goin to the the FPR same as the Bailey. I think its still running OE DV. Iv done some searches and read about putting a one way valve in from OE DV and also read about running the vac hose to the inlet manifold? no idea how to do any of this so any pics, info would be great.

    Thanks Sam

    I have one and mine was exactly the same stalling all the time but luckily mine had an adjuster on dont think yours will if its a newer version though,

    When i read up about it, i got the impression that it was because the valve was dumping to much air there was no pressure going into the cylinders, thus stalling the car.

    I'd try the one way valve but im not certain itll clear your problems,

    putting a 1 way valve in will just make the ssqv louder.
    hopefully yours in adjustable (has a screw on the opposite end to the fins??) just tighten it up a bit. its a bit of trial and error tbh. tighten it up too much and you'll get a short sharp dump...too little and it lets too much air out and the car effectively thinks that there has been a pipe pop off so no correct air/fuel=stalling....mate...beem here...done this!!

    I was just thinking that two valves would let more air out than 1, thats why i said about the one way valve.

    Thanks guys. Hmm il give the one way valve ago since it wouldn't hurt to make it any louder I sort of know how to do it but what am stuck on is connecting the pipe to the OE dump valve. Any one got any pics?

    And sorry to say it's not the adjustable one

    The vacuum pipe should already be connected to the oe dv. Just cut the rubber connector tube thats behind airbox and pop in the one way valve.
    For free hugs PM me.

    So your saying there is no vacuum pipe coming from your OE DV coming out the left of the turbo and going round behind your airbox?
