new dump valve fitted
so my new forge recirculating valve came and i've just fitted it.. no pshhht sound from it at all as it's not the atmospheric kind, i pu$$ied out and opted for a quiet one..
i can say theres an improvement in throttle response but that could be due to the old one being a bit tired at the stage of its life. i recommend getting your dump valves upgraded, the forge's one's designed so the housing houses the spring and can be opened and closed like a jar by turning, this is a better design than the oem one which has the spring pressed against between the body of the turbo and the dump valve case which makes taking it out a bit of a pain because of the spring that is eager to come out..
the valve for the hose which connects to the inlet manifold also could be turned to any position. in conclusion, get one cause it's shiny and treat the spring a service item and the forge dump valve makes taking it out of the turbo much easier, and or get the atmospheric kind to get the pshhhht sound.
tbh i deserve a medal for being able to take the old one out and fit a new one in whilst the turbo is still in the car. it was torture.
**oh the forge dump valve comes with a green spring in it so you dont really need to buy a separate spring.
