    I think diesels don't need or can use a dump valve.Replace the standard panel filter with a K&N or similar

    Dump valve on a diesel is pointless ,
    dumpvalves are used to stop the turbo stalling off throttle with back pressure in the inlet caused by the throttle flap being closed,
    but diesels dont have throttle flaps so theres no need for a dump valve as there is no pressure build up so nothing to vent ,
    also there is no manifold vaccum so theres nothing to operate the valve easily it could be done with the vac system and a series of solenoids and throttle switches but its pointless there would be no gain only the noise,
    Sorry .

    as bellow, no need for a dump valve...look on ebay and you can get a sound reccording of one if you want :lmfao:

    on the induction kit....again dont bother, because a diesel is at WOT all the time all the cone does is drone very loudly! it doesnt bark like a petrol, plus theres no proper room for one, and any that could be fitted would be sucking hot air from above the turbo :no: **** for power and throttle reponse, and just generally a **** idea.
