    Dump valve Question

    Hi again.
    Im buying a riva gen 2 inter cooler kit to replace my gen 1 kit can I re use the pipe from my gen 1 with the blow off valve on it or will I have to buy a new blow of valve for the gen 2 pipe? They seem to have a Difrent fitting to the pipe on the 1&2 kit for the bov
    Many thanks.

    You can re use your old one until u start running more than 12psi boost.itwill get too hot, and melt/leak. You can buy, or make a block off for the metal pipe that will come in that kit.
    I would ditch that BOV, It's not really necessary at all on your setup. The metal pipes will have a larger inside diameter than the old plastic ones also.
