Made from billet aluminium, the Forge Motorsport atmospheric diverter valve dumps the charge-air to atmosphere creating the “Whoosh” sound most commonly associated with rally cars when the throttle is lifted. This increases both quicker throttle response and higher clamping load to maintain boost pressure more reliably.
This is a piston design bypass valve that is a direct replacement for the original fitment. This valve gives greater longevity than the diaphragm (OEM) valves but also benefits from its ability to be fitted with different springs when the boost pressure has been increased or the engine has been modified.
To avoid the possibility of a P0101 trouble code, the ECM must be reprogrammed with a tune optimized for atmospheric discharge.
