Yes its a DIY job and the only effect it had for me was a silly chirping noise - it lasted all of 5 minutes before being put back the normal way.

i have a stock 710N fitteed in reverse on a chipped AGU. It is supposed to hold boost better this way round. It now makes a kind of double dumping noise from time to time.

Its an easy DIY job if you own some pliers and a spanner.

In the link you posted Forge stated that "Reversing the valve changes nothing in the way of the stiffeness of the valve or the amount of boost it will release or hold. Reversing the valve only allows the air to pass though the valve in a different manner."

Yes its the pipes which leaves the DV sitting on its side.

There are two large pipes and one small pipe - leave the small one as it is and just swap the two large pipes over.

gary-glad to see people read back. This should also help...

i believe, if memory serves, that the 710N in particular holds more boost when reversed.

However, not sure if any benefit other than a prolonged life span of DV, that there will be on a standard engine.
