    Removing dump valve

    Will it have any bad affects on how the car runs atall,I prefer the noise of the chatter from the turbo tbh,I know it can shorten the life of the turbo but my last car was a cosworth powered mk4 escort estate which had no dump valve atall and never had any problems,everything I've looked into for the cossies was always that the dump valve wasn't necessary unless you were running over 30psi

    Removing the DV will damage the turbo... normally snaps the shaft in half... leave it on.. its a safety/reliability feature

    advise is dont do it
    you have already stated the risk

    your car

    k0x turbo aint a garret from a cossy.... and 1990's cars vs current tech... they fit DV's for a reason
