My bro's VXR is having problems It had a baileys dv fitted, and was working fine for a wee while, then the EML came on and went into limp mode. Now when he tries to start it, it cuts out completely until you give it fulls revs when turning the key... WTF?

Apparently it was tried on their VXR. The Corsa is being taken back to the garage to have a health test, then the mods are being sent back!

I have had this problem on both corsa VXR's that customers have brought to us for dump valves to be fitted.

both suffered lack of power and were very flat, removed the chav valves and reset the ecu usng the diagnostic equipment and all was fine. (neither have been back in so I assume the problem went away)

But the DV will work on the car for a while. Just like VAG 1.8 20v T engines. Takes time for faults to show on them as the ECU gets fed up

Only with atmospheric ones, even people hate the Forge split r valve that is supposed to be designed for this issue. A decent recirc valve is better .

They are meant for the car as far as you get the right shaped T-piece and the right length of piping to fit it, thats about as far as they'll go with testing it.

Get it off and use the OE kit.

where have you plumbed the vacuum for the dump valve into?
as long as its a 'true' vacuum there 'shouldnt' be any issues, but I'd definately try taking it off
