Turbosmart Kompact Shortie Blow-Off Valve – Plumb Back Version – EVR05 – MK7 Golf GTI / R, Audi A3 / S3 / TT
The standard blow-off valves (aka. diverter valves, bypass valves) used in these engines are simply not a performance-oriented item. They’re made of plastic, they leak, and they degrade over time, potentially causing boost leaks. On tuned vehicles, they struggle to cope with increased boost levels.
Turbosmart’s Kompact Shorties are performance-oriented replacements for the standard valve. They do not leak, and their billet construction ensures they will last even in the most extreme conditions. Plus, the Dual Port offers that classic vent-to-atmosphere noise that many like to hear from their turbocharged cars.
Billet aluminium construction and a precision-matched lightweight piston give a high-quality feel and excellent response. Extremely tight tolerances mean there is no need for an O-ring to seal the piston against the body of the BOV, which improves durability and reduces friction. And of course, they’re all made in Australia.
What’s the difference between the Dual Port and Plumb Back?
The Dual Port vents up to 50% of air to atmosphere, for the sound of a vent-to-atmosphere blow-off valve at high boost, with quieter operation at low boost. It also recirculates enough air to keep the car’s sensors happy, eliminating the lean running often associated with vent-to-atmosphere BOVs.
The Plumb Back is a 100% recirculating valve, so all vented air is routed back into the intake. This ensures quieter operation, avoiding unwanted attention.
Includes all hoses and fittings required for installation.
