    Default fitting a dump valve

    hi i am going to fit a dump valve to my 2.0 turbo my cousin has one he used on his volvo t5 and says that i can have it if it will fit .he says its a double action one or something im not well up on engines.
    does anyone know if this would fit. or if all dump valves are the same and its just the hoses that are different sizes.

    are they easy to fit.
    another friend has one from a 2.0 turbo astra coupe would this fit.
    my engine is a z20net his was a z20let
    any info would be great. thanks.

    iirc its the fittings around the dump valve you may need to change. You will need a new t-piece to take the boost into the valve and a t-piece for the vacuum pipe. sorry i dont know sizes of these pipes.

    You'll be the first to try, AFAIA most guys buy the Forge DV for the Vec C and fit that rather than take it off another car.
