Are you serious about running the line between turbocharged power and preventative maintenance? Do you know what it takes to get the most out of performance without having to overhaul an entire setup? If you’re answering “yes” (or at least nidding along), you might want to consider a new blow off valve. You have to find a way to deal with all that pent-up boost, don’t you?
Installing a GFB respons BOV goes a long way towards protecting your car from built-up boost. The inner workings of your throttle body and intake are based upon proper airflow and boost control. If you want to keep your car in top condition you cannot have one without the other. Putting in a Resons BOV manages the effect of boosted air going through your system. You can control how it is set in order to find the vacuuming level you are trying to get away from or instead, maintain. In addition, it can be set to recirc or vent to air, depending on your driving needs.
In many cases, you don’t have a choice. A valve may be one or the other. That is not how this TMS BOV works. Go Fast Bits developed their product to offer both options to cater to different kinds of drivers. For car owners itching for a more aggressive tone, setting up respons TMS to VTA (vent to atmosphere) will unleash a “woooshing” sound. But not all turbo devotees are into all that racket. For a stealthier approach, the part can be switched to recirculation. This will keep your car humming right along while distributing boost back through the system. Either way, you control the effect. The level of versatility the valve offers is one reason why it is so popular.
Above all else, this part represents an upgrade. Because Go Fast Bits valves are adjustable, you do not have to worry about them clamping. OEM replacements attempt to function when they are fully closed (and open). The reason why this is harmful is due to inconsistent boost levels. Shifting becomes uneven, as the throttle needs to be adjusted in order to maintain even velocity. You really can’t take a chance with this issue popping up, it is just too costly of a proposition. You are put in charge of how boost air is dispersed according to your setup. Plus, Go Fast Bits valves are designed specifically to take over where the factory left off.
You will not have to sweat the installation process. Each valve is a direct replacement and will fit accurately. Inlet and outlet hoses range from 25mm to 35mm. You can find choices available for models such as the WRX, Forester XT, and the Nissan 240SX.
