Dump valve noises

Does anyone know which dump valves make the "metallic" sounding noise as opposed to the generic "swoosh" noise you normally hear?

Re: Dump valve noises

erm.. I guess you could call it that! Do you have one in mind? More of a high pitched sound than the normal noise anyway. I'm no good at describing sounds...

Re: Dump valve noises

why not record/video the sound you want and host it,if you want the Flutter/Chatter,lose the dumpvalve and spend over 1K on a big turbo( ie garret range),will definatly get the chattering sound then!!but on doing that the slippery slope begins!!

I would not describe it as a slope..............more like a vertical drop.

Re: Dump valve noises
