    Random question......

    Silly friday question.....

    Does installing a dump valve actually alter the performance of a car or is it just for chavs trying to make themselves heard?

    In some cases they do alter the performance as they can decrease the turbo lag time when you get off the throttle and then back on straight away.

    Most cases its just noise!

    I had to laugh at some guy who drove by my house a while back.

    He had a 1.9TDI Seat Leon. All I heard was a rattley diesel coming up the road, followed by a horrendously loud dump valve noise.

    Hedge End retail parks seems to be the place that all the local chav's like to meet up.

    The amount of idiots in scooby dump valves as I now call them is unreal. They look shi!t stickered up with Limo tint windows, oil barrles for exhausts and wooshing dump valves...

    I'm getting old I guess as I just don't get it.

    I agree. I like the subtle noise the S3 makes when blowing off but I wouldn't want it any louder.

    Ha ha, i was thinking that as i wrote it!

    Like most people i think there is a limit to what is exceptable with these things.

    I do find the need for people on here to call other people chavs is funny though. Especially as half the time the thing someone is being called a chav for is nothing like what chavs do!

    Anyway moving away from thread! Done right can be good, down wrong and your a CHAV.

    Think thats a good summary?

    Nobody actually called you or anyone else on here a chav. Con S3 originally asked if it was a chav thing to make noise and then noone else mentioned the word until you did.

    I picked up on the fact he needed to state he wasn't a chav, implying he thought that liking a dump valve was chav and therefore making him a chav!

    I know that!

    Read the thread! As MB said it was just a little gag that he started!

    I wasn't talking about this thread anyhow, was just saying that since i've been a member on here i have seen some funny threads in which people have been branded 'Chavs'!

    Was purely passing comment, nothing more and nothing less!

    Hope the matter is all cleared up!

    Yeah there has to be some sort of age limit. I keep seeing old people in modded cars and I'm guessing it was modded when they bought it and they simply don't know!

    Or they're chavs too...

    I'm afraid there's no age limit for chav-membership. Jordan's mid 30's or so isn't she? And she's a massive chav.
