We now have inventory on the new Turbosmart diesel blow off valves (BOV). We have been anticapating thier release and we are very excited about the finished product! This newly designed product is not only an awesome upgrade but also a great protective measure for any turbocharged diesel vehicle.

I have attached some pictures of this kit installed on a Dodge Cummins along with the install instructions and here are the basic benefits in short:

•Turbo protection
o Protects compressor wheel against the damaging effects of off throttle surge.
o Reduces cyclic fatigue on the compressor wheel (turbo will last longer).

•Reduced turbo shaft speed slowing
o In between shifts (manual transmission) a turbo can slow down by 20,000+ rpm, which means with out a BOV installed the turbo has to regain a lot of momentum after every shift to start building boost. With a BOV installed that speed loss can be reduced to as low as 5,000 rpm, which equates to better throttle response and a truck that just "pulls" better overall.
o Although it has not yet been documented this increased turbo response should help with fuel economy as well.

These kits retail for $629.99, they are not listed on the web site so give us a call!

so would it have to be welded to the intake elbow then like in the pic or does it come with a new intake elbow already welded to it?

The blow off will have to be welded some where between the turbo and the intake. This picture just happens to show it welded on a Dodge (aftermarket) intake.
