    There isn't a dump valve on a diesel. Nor is there one on the TFSi (it's a diverter valve). Dump valves are for the likes of Scoobies and Mitsis not for Audis.

    They sound REALLY Chavtastic too!

    Save your cash.

    Yeah please don't get a dump valve. Considering most peple buy an Audi to be understated it would be a very strange mod!!

    Hey guys i think your letting personal taste get in the way here.

    You can get atmospheric vavles for both and i personally like them but hey each to their own gents. You can change your diverter valve to let off some air everytime you change gear. People like Forge do them so check with them. Not 100% on the diesel side of things though.

    Its like saying stage 1 & 2 conversions aren't for 4 door diesel family cars but hey you've done it...... Each to their own my friends, each to their own.

    By the way that car must have some torque with that upgrade, must pull like a bitch on the motorway!

    You can buy dump valve kits for TDis from the likes of Forge and Dervdoctor.
    They are around £250+ and do nothing but make the dumping noise.

    There is no benefit whatsoever in fitting a dump valve on a TDI.

    But if you want the sound of it thats up to you.

    Diesel + blowoff noise? I'm sorry, but that doesnt sound right to me.
