Product Description

The T9488 is the latest addition to the DV+ range of diverter valves from GFB (Go Fast Bits). It is specifically designed as a complete replacement for the OE diverter valves

Like all valves in the DV+ range, the new T9480 delivers the following benefits over the OEM diverter valve:

  • Improved boost holding (see next page for more details)
  • "Whoosh" Blow off Sound
  • Sharper throttle response
  • Faster boost recovery after a gearshift or brief throttle lift
  • Unrivalled longevity, backed by our Lifetime Warranty 

Improved Boost Holding

Since electronic OEM diverter valves first appeared in the mid-2000s, there have been many revisions over the years in an attempt to address reliability issues. Whilst the latest generation of OEM diverter valves have become more reliable, there is always a performance trade-off due to their operational method and plastic construction.

When GFB engineers performed boost leak testing on the OEM diverter valve in a VW Mk8 Golf R, they found the leak was significantly larger than in earlier generations.

This excessive leaking is due to the emerging trend of manufacturers mounting diverter valves remotely on plastic piping rather than directly on the turbocharger. A plastic valve mechanism closing onto a plastic seat resulted in the largest OEM diverter valve leak we’ve seen yet at 28L/min at 1 Bar of boost.

Even with the Viton face seal (featured on all DV+ pistons), the plastic OEM seat face was found to be so uneven that it was impossible to achieve a reliable seal. The T9380 successfully addresses this issue by incorporating an integral piston seat machined into its body. This design ensures a proper seal, even on uneven plastic OEM seats.
