Guys,

where is the dump valve on the TDCI's. I saw a few Mondeo TDCI's and they had all changed their dump valves and it sounded rather nice but I didnt get a chance to ask what they had changed it to and how difficult it was.

any ideas?

I wouldn't bother as a dump valve on a diesel actually makes the car slower as it purges charged air from the intake

diesels dont have dump valves as standard the ford focus diesels use a recirculation valve infact all diesels do so fitting a dump valve would only cause issues
i.e engine management lights , and drops in performance.

i think they sell aftermarket recirc valves that are louder etc but im no expert on them , have a search around

as above, it wont have a dump valve as diesels are free breathers.

sorry my bad. i should have put Blow Off Valve (BOV). I need to do some research....but feel free to share any info you may have.

its the same thing mate, basically the pressure is released to atmosphere when foot comes off accelaretor, as i said id look for a recirculation valve that makes a noise

if you do some exhaust work youll hear that sound your looking for quite clearly downpipe / silencer replacement with a straight pipe, check : [url="http://www.european-parts.net/catalog/index.php/cPath/58_82"]http://www.european-parts.net/catalog/index.php/cPath/58_82[/url]
