Question about 1996 Audi A4
Hi ive just got a audi a3 1.8t and want to fit a baileys dump valve,do i need to take off the re-circulating dump valve?
A dump valve replaces the recirc valve. Did you see the reply to your prior post on this topic that I put up the other day? You can do it but it'll cost you your catalytic converter and O2 sensors - that has been proven out many times in the past. If you don't care about that and don't mind spending $1200-1500 every year or 18 months to replace those parts, then go to www.audiworld.com or www.audidiy.com and look in the tech areas - there are step by step procedures there that walk you through recirc valve replacment. They'll show you how to fit an aftermarket recirc valve, but you can follow that procedure to do a BOV as well.
Seriously though, as I said before, some cars are fine with BOVs but Audis are not. You're going to cost yourself a LOT of money just for the sneeze sound and slightly slower turbo spool. Your car and money though so it's your decision.
