TURBOSMART FORD 1.0 ECOBOOST | KOMPACT DUAL PORT FOR ASTRA
Turbosmart’s new Kompact VR09 Dual Port for the 1.0-litre EcoBoost is a billet aluminium replacement for the Fiesta & Focus factory plastic BOV.
The Dual Port is a 50-50 recirculation/vent-to-atmosphere valve for that classic vent-to-atmosphere BOV sound at high boost, and quiet operation at low boost.
The standard bypass valve on the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engines is a weak, plastic, diaphragm-type valve – a type of valve that has a track record of failures. Turbosmart’s billet aluminium replacement is manufactured with precision, designed for unlimited boost holding capability, excellent response times and heavy-duty reliability.
The Fiesta’s standard valve is controlled by a solenoid, meaning the ECU can decide when to open the valve – meaning it can be used to bleed boost, limiting performance. The Turbosmart VR09 Kit bypasses this solenoid, allowing the BOV/BPV to operate with manifold vacuum, putting control back in the hands of the driver, all with no check engine lights.
Installation is straightforward, and the valve is a bolt-on direct replacement for the factory valve. No special tools are required and all necessary hardware is included.
The Kompact VR09 is precision machined, hand assembled and individually quality tested in Australia to the highest quality standards.
