    The thing that goes "Pishhhhhhhhhhh" when you change gear on a turbo car. pointless, don't bother.

    Also not easy on a diesel. It needs to be a fully electronic one.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    It's basically a valve that releases the excess air pressure generated by the turbo when you depress the clutch or stop accelerating mate. All turbo cars have one, normally known as a wastegate I believe. A dump valve is simply a noisy boy-racerish one that makes you sound like a rally driver and is, fdor want of a better word, gay...









    Although the one I saw fitted to a smart car was ratehr amusing.....

    I agree! Nothing sounds better than the induction of an engine revving up, the 'tishhhhh', as the car passes with a pop from the exhaust before revving up through the next gear!

    Even the new Golf GTI Diesel I saw the other day had one fitted! Sounded quite nice I though, compared to an old Escort diesel, which sounded light the trolly block and crashed his trolly's into a wall at Tescos!
