    why do you want a dump valve?
    the car is set up to recirc the vented charge back into the TIP. if you dump it you may through some codes, you will certainly end up running a bit rich and you could end up with worse performance.

    much better getting a decent recirc valve.
    If it the noise you are after just get a sheilded cone instead of the airbox

    How do I go about the sensor on top of air box when fitting a cone ?? Was looking at getting the splitter from forge ?? Any easy to mount ??

    That's just the ignition amplifier. I just zip tied mine out of harms way. Never had a problem with it.
