    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 :)

    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

    Looking good mate, I like it :)

    I had those coil pakcs (the bolt down ones) mucho better than standard... shame you're leaving the tray on, but it looks better :)

    Love the clean look, keep it going fella :)

    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 :)
