    Default Removing dump valve (2.0 t)

    Hi people, Im looking to sell my 2.0 turbo vectra soon, i've only owned it 3-4 months and it came with a dump valve so i've not got around to removing it yet. I think the dump valve will probably put most buyers off, plus its not to my taste anyway.

    Is there a replacment part that I need to fit or does it just pull off?

    Cheers, Liam.

    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    depends what type of DV it is.. If its the type that bolts to the turbo in place of the factory wastegate then you will need to find another. if its the type that just fits in the vacuum pipes then just rejoin them or replace the pipe itself.. Got a pic?
