This GFB DV+ Performance Diverter Valve is a fully recirculating direct replacement for the factory pneumatic diaphragm type BPV (Bypass Valve) that features GFB’s TMS technology, which can help the peak boost up to 30% faster over the factory diverter valve when shifting gears.
The OEM fitted BPV is situated right on the compressor, it is subjected to the hottest part of the intake charge, and the heat from the compressor cover itself. This can cause the factory diaphragm to rupture, if this happens and goes undetected for a while, it can cause damage to the turbo, as the ECU will try to compensate for the lost boost pressure by increasing turbo speed.
The factory BPV also does not have the ability to open and close progressively in response to the existing boost pressure, and throttle response suffers when the valve vents more than it should in situations where you are not fully lifting the throttle. The GFB DV+ solves these issues using proven metal and silicone construction of the valve components, meaning the DV+ will last a lifetime regardless of the harsh conditions.
As for performance, because the GFB DV+ features a carefully selected spring rate & spring pre-load adjustment, it can operate progressively to help sharpen throttle response. This is the basis of GFB’s TMS principle, which has been shown to reduce the time to peak boost on gearshift by 30%. This benefit is also particularly noticeable in situations where you are modulating the throttle to balance the car in a corner.
A easy direct-fit solution to the factory diverter valve used on many Borg Warner Turbos, Ford and Porsche 997 engines.
Once installed, their will be sharper throttle response, lightning-fast valve actuation, and will hold as much boost as you can throw at it!
These are 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 unlike traditional pneumatic valves.
The GFB DV+ Diverter Valve is a recirculation valve and does not vent to the atmosphere, providing a quiet operation.
