Tiago @ VR Speed & Muse External o2 Dump Review

After putting a few miles on Muse Motorpsorts external dump o2 I recently picked up locally from Tiago @ VRSF in Hudson, MA I decided it's about time to post up a proper review.

First off let me say that VR Speed's pricing and Tiago's customer service can not be beat. Not only was their pricing already the lowest I could find from any vendor but they guaranteed me they'd beat anyones price & did. Tiago answered the dozens of PM's & e-mails I sent within MINUTES & took the time to understand what I had planned for the car before throwing a bunch of parts at me in hopes of a quick sale.

The o2 dump is 304 grade stainless steel which won't rust & fits any lower intercooler pipe on the market. It has a cnc'd flange to match the wastegate outlet unlike a few of the other o2 dumps on the market & it's currently the least expensive dump on the market. The lifetime warranty is a also big plus. I didn't take any pics of the dump while installing it but there's a few pics on their website.

The install went perfect aside from a rusty stubborn nut or two. The o2 dump fit perfectly with both the stock licp & the Muse LICP I recently installed. Initial impressions were amazing. There was definitely a power gain over the Megan o2 housing I had on before, if I had to guess I'd say about 15-20hp. I was expecting this thing to SCREAM but it sounds amazing at WOT. Not too loud for a DD but a little louder than an aftermarket exhaust at WOT.
All in all I'd definitely recommend this part to anyone looking for a few extra hp at a cheap price. I'd also recommend Tiago @ VR Speed and I can confidently say that they are my go to shop for any parts in the future. I'm going back to pick up the Muse vband catback in a few days & I'll have a video up of the exhaust & o2 dump in car.

Can't say I have any on hand.

This o2 dump utilized an aftermarket gasket which retains the divorced outlet whereas the stock gasket doesn't divide the turbine & waste gate outlet. I can get you some pics vs the stock gasket if you'd like but this dump wasn't designed to use said gasket
