    Default just fitted my dump valve anddd

    it doesnt open .. does this mean its not workin at all ?
    im sure everything is on right
    the only thing that may not be right .. is that the blanking plate i got sent doesnt fit at all .. so i pop riveted the old actuator to work as this same thing ??
    could this be the problem

    These dump valve's are pressure rated so i doubt it would work with it being pop riveted but im no expert....

    Picture's would help buddy

    am i correct in thinkin that by actuator you mean the original dump valve as you shouldnt of been any where near turbo actuator and if you have used the original dump valve housing this will never work as you are now permantly rooting incoming air round in circles
    i will try and draw some thing...

    if you have removed the insides of standard dump valve then all incoming air will not be boosted by turbo
