TIP - use a 3'' long peice of wooden broom handle and wedge it where the D/V goes ,

Then pull out the the vacum hose that fits into the front of the D/V , Use a bolt to wedge into the end of the silicone vacum pipe if your not 100% confident in removing the pipe work completely  , this will eliminate the D/V set up  [ just Remember to tuck it away some where its not going to either melt on something hot , or get stuck/ wedged in.

Then remove air box and fittings , attache the 90degree bend to the turbo cold side , then place the metal pipe into the bend then filter at the end! . yeah maybe a t2 will sound slightly different but still miles better !

basically your a mug if you WANT your turbo to chatter, its just about the worst thing to ever want for your turbo, yes it sounds good but if you actually imagine the forces that are involved to make a turbine wheel thats spinning at about 150krpms to stall instantly itl make you cringe....and then need a turbo rebuild

The damage is questionable. The R5 didn't leave the factory with any bypass valves at all and many owners have not suffered any premature failures because of this.

As i mentioned in my other post most if not all modern turbo cars do have bypass valves, but this seems mainly in the interest of keeping the engine running smoothly rather then actual physical damage.

Honestly, I do not have the greatest knowledge on turbos, but I know that the WRC rally cars' turbos do chatter. I've heard it. And it is also mentioned earlier in this thread... So why would they race with turbo chatter, if the chatter is potentially damaging? They would know what's best, I reckon??

PS. I too am currently thinking about removing my dumpvalve :D

Cheers...
