DV+ solutions are production year dependent. Select accordingly.
- Uses factory solenoid coil for seamless integration
- Replaces plastic valve parts with metal for reliability and strength on chipped engines
- Direct-fit replacement with TMS benefits
- Exclusive “pilot-actuated” valve mechanism for rapid response at high boost
The solenoid coil itself from the factory-fitted valve is great- the ECU opens it faster than any pneumatic valve so why replace it? Because the weak point in the whole process is the valve mechanism itself. This upgrade solves this problem by replacing the valve parts with an anodized billet aluminum housing, fitted with a brass piston machined to exacting tolerances.
Other manufacturers’ products involve replacing the entire system with a traditional pneumatic valve. In doing so, you’ll need 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.
That’s why the DV+ Diverter Valve Upgrade solution is so brilliant. 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.
NOTE: Some states (like California) have ever tightening requirements for emissions testing and inspections. Always check your current state regulations on compliance for street use before you order.
