Hi all,

A couple of quick turkey noise questions...

1. When this happens, is it louder than the normal little 'chuff' you get when the standard DV.
2. If this isn't caused by the 'popped off' pipe on the vacuum box, is the split diaphram the only other cause?

I mainly ask as I am not too sure whether I have a problem or not on my VXR.

When changing gear, sometimes it sounds like a cross between the turkey gobble and a standard dump. IE a standard chuff but stuttered (if that sounds right). The car also seems to be popping and banging from the exhaust loads more than previously and fuel economy seems to be worse (although I'm not 100% on the economy, I don't look too closely at that!)

I've checked the vacuum pipe for wear/popping off/etc. and it's all good.

Ta in advance,

Graham.

yeah its pretty loud in comparison to the standard noise.

it may not sound too loud at some stages as you havent been on full boost

Gnasher, what was the outcome of this?

I too have a similar problem on my stage 3 zaf. Mpg has gone down to 18!

Can't see any pipes disconnected.

Cheers

THe Noise could be a disconnected pipe, i know i spent a few hours under my engine checking all pipes and cable tying them.

I believe also it can be a spilt diaphram.

also i dont know if your meant to make a dumping sound you can hear ??? i am very noise sensitive when driving and i am sure mine does not make a noise after i sorted my pipes ??

Think this is caused by a diaphragm in the waste gate actuator as the air rattles past it. There was a repair kit available from Vx for it I think.

firstly .. welcome to the site mate .. :)

if the pipe keeps slipping off then try wiping it down with a rag just to remove any crap thats stuck there....

failing that ... i judt used a little clip on the pipe thats causing me hassle :D

if you have a Induction kit you will get wastegate chatter, is that the noise your talking about? its normal on a turbo car that has an induction kit, drilled airbox, or a split pipe, its just an exagerated chatter from the "wind" :dontknow: lol

I removed my induction kit and re fitted the standard air box , how do you get the hose at the bottom of the box on ? It's so short I can't manage to do it so have left it off . Will this cause any problems ?

Thanks
