I am reasonably new to the ST having owned it for about 3 weeks now. The car came fitted with the DSCI induction kit and also has a dump valve fitted. I am not really a fan of the dump valve to be honest but what are the benefits of having one fitted over standard (if there is any)? Also how much is the clutch from and RS and are they a straight swap for the clutch from the ST as i think it is starting to slip.

remove the dump valve its just for noise show. the dsci makes its own noise that sounds good and does a purpose.

someone will buy the dumpvalve off you unbelievably on here so you will be quids up.
as for the clutch...well id like to wait and find out that answer too

If you answer yes to more than two of the following questions then a dump valve is for you;

1. Have you ever gone to McDonalds to park and not eat the food?
2. Do you have mates who shorten their name with a 'z' or 'ce' e.g. Daz, Baz, Trace, Stace?
3. Have you bought anything with the following brands - Burberry, Henry Lloyd?
4. Do you enjoy driving up to 7000 revs in first gearing then dumping the clutch and stopping again?
5. Have you or do you own a sovereign ring?
6. Are you getting offended by ANY of the above or below questions?
7. Have you ever put your tracksuit bottoms into your socks when NOT playing a sport?
8. Have you ever worn shoes with tracksuit bottoms?
9. Does your current or former girlfriend wear large hooped earings?
10. Do you have two ears pierced (as a man) and wear large faux-diamonte stones in them?

No offence to anyone who does any of this - please see question 6.

I have shortened my name to Dazza for the purposes of this site alone, but i do none of the above apart from that, i think dump valves are an extension of your
and hate all chavs with the burning passion of 1,000,000 suns. But because i am "Dazza" i now feel i should buy a dump valve. Think it would go well with my long hair and guitar in the boot. . .? What do you reakon? Lol. Haha.
All of the above, absolutely brilliant! One of the best posts i've ever seen!

profile do a swap for your clutch but you have to change the flywheel and slave cyclinders aswell.
dont think you need to change all this with a normal ST clutch.
so its cheaper if you are changing it all not if its just the clutch.

if you like the dump valve keep it, if not sell it.
on the ST i dont beleave there are any benifits from it (not true for other car's , on some it does improve performance)

Loving the questions but slightly embarassed!! I have a DV fitted but have never done any of the above. I had it fitted because I had always wanted one so thought I would try it. Am liking it but to be honest not 100% sure if I will keep it. Think its a choice of taste - give it a go and see!

its personal choice really i got one when i got my
becuse as above i always wanted one but it wore off after a few months and i changed it will the DSCI induction kit which i thought sounded better and sold the DV but a month back i put one back on but it has annoyed me yet again so its back in the garage lol i dont think it will go back on

and is it doing anything... proberly not just making a noise they are there to stop the turbo turbines from stalling but as the st already has a dv built into the turbo houseing it doesnt need 2 no the answer would be no
