GFB Blow Off Valve BOV DV+ T9358
- Replaces plastic valve parts with metal for reliability and strength on chipped engines
- Direct-fit replacement with GFB's TMS benefits
- Exclusive "pilot-actuated" valve mechanism for rapid response at high boost
- GFB expands the DV+ range with a direct-fit solution for the weak factory diverter valve used on many European vehicles.
The solenoid coil itself from the factory-fitted valve is great- the ECU opens it faster than any pneumatic valve so why replace it? The weak point however, is the valve mechanism itself. GFB's DV+ solves this problem by replacing the valve parts with an anodised billet aluminium housing, fitted with a brass piston machined to exacting tolerances.
The end result is sharper throttle response, lightning-fast valve actuation, and it will hold as much boost as you can throw at it. Read all about the DV+ story below. Other manufacturers' products involve replacing the entire system with a traditional pneumatic valve. This approach requires long vacuum hose runs, additional parts for tapping into the intake manifold vacuum, plus a different solenoid valve to actuate the pneumatic valve, or a ballast resistor to plug into the OE wiring loom. All these additional items result in a product that is slower, less responsive, more expensive and takes much longer to install.
GFB's DV+ solution on the other hand is more responsive, less expensive, easier to install, and doesn't cause compressor surge/ turbo flutter. Oh, and it doesn't require different springs or frequent re-builds either.
