COMPLETELY pointless.

The purpose of a dump valve is to vent excess pressure and prevent the turbo stalling when the throttle butterfly is closed.
The valve opens when there is more pressure before the butterfly than after it (over a set amount).
Diesels do not have a throttle butterfly so don't have that issue at all.

Diesel Turbos have no vaccum also so you need an electronically controlled valve.

I remember one complete **** describing the noise a dump valve made as 'air gears'.

OP should hang their head in shame, delete their account and hide under a stone somewhere...

He's only posted once, that's a bit harsh just because he's desperate for a dump. Welcome to the stupid world of Alfaowner stp8080
