Electric blow off valves for the modern turbocharged engine

Currently hitting the shelves of major automotive performance dealers is Turbosmart’s latest range of electro-mechanical blow off valves (also known as dump valve, or diverter valve): the Turbosmart Kompact EM BOV.
Available in both a plumb back (recirculate) and vent to atmosphere, this latest range of plug-and-play valves from Turbosmart sees an introduction to boost control for Original Equipment Manufacturers of turbocharged vehicle applications that require an electronic diverter valve.
Featuring unique, patent-pending, pressure control features, these units are faster than OE, greatly reduce boost leak by up to 400 percent and do not interfere with the OEM control systems. Turbosmart says this makes for the fastest responding valve available for these vehicles on the market while the combination of billet construction and high-temperature proprietary material allows for increased boost control, increasing the life of turbochargers and providing maximum performance.
Brendan Lee, Turbosmart’s APAC Sales Manager is particularly excited to see the latest range to be released.
“This is a move in the right direction for the Turbosmart customer. Not just within the APAC region, but across the globe, we are seeing a greater influx of smaller, but more powerful turbocharged OEM applications requiring electronic response valves,” Brendan said.
“With this new release, Turbosmart is helping customers that want to take the next step in replacing their OEM valves with an aftermarket product that offers greater responsiveness, greater reliability and greater performance.”

Turbosmart says its new EM BOVs are the world’s first truly plug and play blow off valves; bringing to market a diverter valve without additional hardware required – no hoses, no adapters, no brackets, just replace the OEM unit. It says this means a seamless integration into customers’ existing applications, making the units very easy to install.
“Technology is moving fast in the world of turbocharged vehicle manufacturing and we are determined to stay ahead of the curve,” Turbosmart Production Manager, Richard Hong, said.
“We invested a lot of time and money into finding and testing vehicles for the EM BOV.
“We ran countless tests on many vehicles to make sure that this application is perfectly suited to match the fine engineering and electronics of the OEM technology found in the latest turbocharged applications.”
