    some say yea, some say no... ive been running it like that for weeks now you just get a bit more lag between gears... over time ive been told it can ruin the turbo but i have my doubts.

    I wouldnt risk it mate but Im only basing that answer on the fact that through a very reliable source, the standard turbo recirc valve should NEVER be blanked. But everyone has their own opinion on this I still wouldnt drive a turbo without one though.

    I think he'll be fine with it like that for a week mate. tbh theres plenty of reliable sources around that clash with their opinions and i for one have had my doubts, ive been running with no dv atall whilst my custem t piece gets made up for about 8 weeks now and ive had no trouble.

    So what your saying is that even with a dv on like a baileys collins etc you wouldnt blank the OE one ?

    No..... is my answer Rainey. I have ran them both together when I had a Dumpvalve on my car. I do however prefer to run my car without an after market DV..
