its a dump valve,normally only found on turbo'd petrol cars,but "the derv doctor" has got them to work on diesel cars.

once id got mine fitted i had a good look at the kit and to be honest its really simple.Turbo D's do have vacum,though not from the inlet manifold like on petrol cars,its from the vacum pump which creates vacum for your brake servo to work.You quite simply put a T piece into this pipe so you now have your vacum.What you need now is to control the vacum via a micro switch on the throttle and a vacum switch inline on your new vacum pipe.The vacum switch is actually an EGr valve of a Peugeot 306.You can get all the parts for about £150.then its just a case of fitting.

our bodyshop has a VW 2.0L TD in at the moment and it sounds amazing with the dump valve on. You would get more out of a bleed valve and a boost gauge though to be honest....and a lot cheaper

bought the dump valve purely for the sound...the looks you get on peoples faces is class....im well impressed with the powerchip,pulls through the gears much faster,looking at getting the bleed valve next,the derv doctor got 150bhp out a ZR TD van!!!!
