i dont see how a dump valve could affect fuel said your intercooler made the dv quiter? yeah relocating it could affect noise a bit and am sure i've read somewhere on here relocating the dv somewhere near the intercooler try searching mate
I would also say that a DV would probably not affect fuel consumption, although fitting the front mount possibly could - if the map on your car doesn't allow for the additional volume of air, the ECU might adjust he mixture (making it richer) to compensate...

As for making more noise - I run a recirculating valve with a K&N cone filter and this makes plenty of dump noise as the released air leaves through the cone. [Y]

cool dude thanks for help got another question as you got a agu a red light kept coming on yesterday an exclamation mark in brackets i have checked my manual and it says top brake fluid up is this true cheers rick
