    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:

    [​IMG]


    After:

    [​IMG]


    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:

    [​IMG]

    BINGO!!


    Now after:

    [​IMG]

    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:

    [​IMG]

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



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

    [​IMG]

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


    Any advice would be awesome thanks.

    If its a 007P then it makes more of a squeak, rather than being quiet...(depending on CAI). Not sure if you can fit ALL types in both orientations...

    Those PSI levels lookmucho better mate, is what I'd expect from a stage 1 map.

    Which N249 thread did you read?? ;)

    I dont have a clue what DV i actually have. Will have to take it off one day and look for markings.

    I read this thread - N249 ByPass Guide Although i did read / look at about a million threads on here :D

    A trick I used to do if I developed a fault, or hit limp mode, was to reset the battery. You won't lose the map, but it will reset the cars 'learnt' settings. Will be worth a go if its been driving at 5psi and poor vac for a while.

    Could be a Bailey DV30, that was the most common after a 007P. The reason I say this is I had both a polished 007P and a black 007p, neither had 'ridges' around the top as per your pic. Also, bearing in mind it was a couple of years ago, I don' think my DV sat like yours does... let me find a pic.. :)

    I only asked about the N249 thread as I started one years ago, and every so often it pops up! lol

    I'm not saying that, but worth looking at other peoples when you're next at a meet.

    At the end of the day if you are driving around fine, and no error codes are apparent, then the car is happy, and so should you be lol
