    Was sat at a set of traffic lights last night when a Blue Ibiza Cupra pulled up next to me. Never seen it before ever. Heard him revving it up, so we set off and I had him off. Pulled up at next set, the same thing happened. He could not get past me. Anyway, this car for sure had a Atmospheric Dump Valve. I could clearly hear it. Also had an exhaust and induction kit, but he couldn't get past me. We pulled up and had a crack a bit down the road. Apparently, he'd only jus bought the car about 3 days before and therefore couldn't set off properly in it, which was his lame excuse for being beaten twice!! He was saying tho, that he had reciept's for a REVO re-map, full supersprint system and Jabbasport induction kit and other bits and bobs done to the engine.

    Basically, the reason for this thread is two things:

    1) How the hell has he got an Atmospheric D/V on it without problems??

    2) Also, my car is totally standard apart from REVO, and his has a few things done and couldn't get past me for ****. It wasn't as if he was goining on me once he'd set off, I was constantly gaining distance on him. How is this?? And if this is the case, whats the point in adding £500 exhausts n stuff, when it dosent make the car any faster???

    it probably is a forge recirc , mine makes a fairly loud release and its a recirc.
    iether that or thats why he wasnt running away.

    with a jabba filter (open not enclosed) you could probably hear the forge 007p (assuming that is what he has) dump through it. I know you can hear mine when quite loud when you remove the cover from the BMC

    Yup, he probably has a re-circ DV with an open filter. When i have the cover off my RamAir the DV noise is quite loud.

    A CAT-back exhaust and filter wont make much of a difference on their own.

    Perhaps he was running too much timing/boost from using SPS.

    It might have been a Turbo XS dump valve.

    But chatter is bad, your Diverter Valve mustn't be working.

    Steve0, like has already been said, the cat back exhaust and filter won't make a massive improvement on his car, if it had a turbo back exhaust that could make some difference. :)

    Right. was jus checking about th d/v.

    Yes, am sure he couldn't get past. Was very surprised tbh, was expecting him to come flying past when I heard the exhaust, etc.

    What sort'a filter would you lot recommend then, to get the loudest d/v sound when coupled with a Forge Re-circ???

    Any type of open filter will be loud with the Forge DV.
