    A3TDi Dump Valve

    Could anyone tell if it is possible to fit a dump valve to a 2.0Tdi Sport A3 (new style) and if so where are they available? closer to scotland the better!

    thanks! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    There aint a dump valve on your car at the moment (which by your question you knew) all the air is through the wastegate.
    I was in the same boat as you wanting to fit a viper dv but it aint possible i'm afraid.
    The wastegate on a heavily modded tdi sounds impressive enough anyway.

    Dump valves and diesels don't go. Don't ask me to explain the science though.
