Baileys dump valve on a mk4 golf 1.8 gti t???
« on: 02 June 2010, 19:58 »
hello, im new to the site.  I purchased a baileys piston dump valve for my newly purchased mk4 golf without checking which one to get first (only wanted it for the noise lol)  anyway after looking under the bonnet thers already a recirc dump valve on it and my dump valve doesnt have the extra connector on it for the air intake hose...Iv read a lot about the engine management light coming on if the piston dump valves are fitted to the golfs,  Is there any way of fitting the dump valve as the one thats on doesnt make any sound and its the ppptttshhhht i want.

the dump valve i have bought is the same as this one http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Bailey-Motorsport-dump-valve-/250641001685?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3a5b5e2cd5

the one thats already on is the same as this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/RECIRCULATING-DUMP-VALVE-GOLF-GTI-1-8T-20v-Turbo-/380231211857?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item58878bdb51

any help would be very much appreciated as this is my first VW and i am not familiar with these vehicles,

very best regards,

Shaun

It would be best to leave the one that you have now on, as that other one will throw codes and might make you lose some performance too.

Want the noise of a scooby? Buy one  :tongue: :tongue:

fit it to the intercooler pipe useing a kit and buy 2 blanking plugs to blank of the pipes where your standard dv is, alot of ppl say they throw the engine management lights up altho i had a baileys 1 fitted to mine for months without any lights up but they seem to make ya loose abit of power , best option is to go for the forge 007p and a cold air induction kit (for the noise) sounds just as nice and ya car will feel alot better on throttle response.
