Thumbs Up Can a Dump Valve be fitted to a 147 Lusso 1.9 Turbo Diesel

Hi everyone just a quick question, is it possible to fit a dump valve or a waste gate valve to my Alfa 147 Lusso 8v 1.9 turbo diesel.

If possible to do it what dump/waste gate valve do i need.

Last question would you be able to hear it

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.

You can buy false ones on e bay etc. Alternatively fit Acme Thunderer to your exhaust

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
