Can any one tell me if this engine has a turbo dump valve and if so where is it normally located. all replies greatfully recieved.
thanks regards martin.
The active discussions on this topic are always in the performance forum.

The 9-3 does NOT have a dump valve. It has a bypass valve, a.k.a. recirculating valve.

Martin,

I just want to make you aware that there is a rabid discussion on BOV's currently taking place in the performance forum. You will definitely want to read up before you spend your money. There have been a lot of problems with BOV's on this car for the past two years. The Trionic system does not like them.

There is a special (yellow) spring you need from Forge to get their valve to work. Frankly, I'm not sure this is the final solution, but so far, so good.

Just to warn you, stock BOV's have sent some members cars into "limp mode," which required a trip to the dealer to clear error codes.

This is the performance forum for the 9-3SS
