Not being rude here, but thats not true, look above at my pics... no resistors, but black box is gone. Mine was all done with just tubing.

As far as the car was concerned the box was still there :)

Looked much cleaner :)

Right after a little bit of reading on the forum and looking at pic i though i would have a go Bypassing the N249.

Well, what can i say....for all the threads on here about it...its a piece of cake. lol

Though i would mess it up but no, its nice and simple...followed a thread on here and walla. All done.

Soo some pics:

Before:




After:




Also when i opened the bonned i could hear this hissing sound, was like this since i got it but i couldnt hear it while i was looking around the car before buying!! ohwell.

Any way, i automaticlly though...Split Pipe [:@]

Had a look around from where the noise was coming from and:



BINGO!!


Now after:



Sounds a lot better AND its running at around 18psi of boost :clap:

Although it only boosts to about 14/15psi sometimes in different gears! Is this normal for the psi to change?


AND now on idle the boost gauge is now showing a different reading, is this normal??

After i fixed it:



With the split, it was on about 10 / 9.



Also, would like to ask...is my DV on the right way? :redface:



Im not 100% sure as im a n0000b :whistle:


Any advice would be awesome thanks.
alright bud looks to me that your dv is the wrong way around give it a try the other way.
as for your boost gauge thats looking about the same as mines does on tick over.
does your psi drop from 14psi if 14 is your peak, mine peaks at 21psi and then drops to around 16psi then holds it and thats in all gears iv got a stage 1 remap not sure who maybe revo

From your pic mate your dump valve is on correct. It looks slightly different to a 007 but same design. The pipe leading into the bottom of the valve should be coming from the charge pipe. The shiney alloy pipe running across top of engine! Which by the looks of yours it is. This means the charge from the turbo will be pushing up on the piston and will open it when accelerator is let off. The outlet on the side of the valve should then go into the tip.

If it was installed the other way around it would still work. But all the pressure is pushing on the side of piston and it won't open as responsively

Well the standard ones 'can' work their way out, slightly raised. Plus the standard ones are'nt great, during ownership your almost guaranteed to need to repalce a couple (I always carried a spare).

The IHI had the ones like you've got, had no problems with them :)
