how come when anyone mentions a dump valve everyone on here hates the idea, boy racer blah blah blah, but when someone upgrades their recirculating dumpvalve and gets a cai then everyone loves the sound even though it basically sounds the same. just dont understand you either like it or you dont in my opinion.

Your speaking crap so go sit in the corner.

Everyone slates dump valves because they make the car run crap, the 1.8t was not designed to run an atmospheric valve. As the air is not recirculating back into the intake the ecu goes nuts because it can't account for the sudden loss of air and it will make the car run rich and will have idling problems. So if you want a big whoosh but your car to run like a bag of steaming turd then by all accounts go get a 'BoV' ?

I personally like the Saxo VTS, in fact I nearly bought one in place of the car I had before my Golf.
Superb punchy engine with great handling out of the box.

I had a few Saxos when I first passed my test. This was back in 1999 when they
were relatively ok, and not even a twinkle in a Chavs eye.... Before 'modifying'
became 'fibreglass - make your car look like something out of Star
Wars'.
