    not to worry.. you have a recirculating turbo so an external bov / DV will give you no benefit, if anything it will hinder your performance.. If its the sound your after then fair enough but i hate the extra sound, to me its chavvy but we each want different things. My car is tuned up and lets a very audible dump anyway when I am giving it some gas, its enough for me but people will have just heard it take off so hearing the dump will not surprise them.. In essence unless you car really goes then leave the DVs to lads in the ASDA car park.

    ta... Some guys like the Powerflow zorsts some don't, its a franchise type thing isn't it so you have to hope that your local one is good. Mine is a ******, there are others a little further away but I have not used them yet.. As you know a good free flowing exhaust system is a benefit, where you get it from is your choice. Your turbo produces all the back pressure your engine needs basically, you just need to balance the sound with what sounds good and what will annoy the tits off you when your cruising down the motorway trying to chat with your mates etc..
