I would doubt you would be able to get anything for a florino van seen as the 1.7 engine is no longer in production in the UK

Although you could become an FF guinea pig and make something or adapt something from a tipo or uno TD dump valve if you can find one.

Unfortunately for you, this forum is quite friendly and alot of harmless banter goes on. Alright? (y)

Dump valves on diesels do nothing and cost a ****e-load to buy and fit. The normal ones on petrols dont work with diesels, I dont know exactly why but have a search and find out.

So, not worth it imo!
