Go Fast Bits | Blow Off-Diverter Valve for the MINI Cooper S | N14

The Go Fast Bits DV+ Diverter Valve is a direct replacement for the factory valve (Patent Pending). Keep what works and replace what doesn't. By retaining the factory ECU control and recirculating the vented air, the DV+ is a purely performance oriented product that offers the following benefits:

  • Sharper throttle response
  • Faster boost recovery on gearshift
  • Solves boost leaking issues
  • Built to last
This Direct fit replacement for the factory diverter valve uses the existing solenoid with TMS advantage. Works with stock hardware, improves performance and reliability. Exclusive pilot activation system allows HIGHER boost pressure. The end result is sharper throttle response, lightning fast valve actuation and the ability to hold as much boost as you can throw at it. The OE solenoid itself is great, the ECU opens it faster than any pneumatic valve so why replace it? The only valve on the market to solve the problem without flutter, excessive cabling and extra parts, installed in half the time at more than half the price. WHEN you want no noise, no nonsense, just performance. European manufacturers are pushing their engines to the limit. Get a DV+ to match. Go Fast Bits DV+ diverter valve range offers a direct fit performance solution for the weak factory diverter valves used on many modern vehicles.

  • Retains the factory solenoid coil for seamless integration
  • Replaces plastic valve parts with metal for reliability and strength on chipped engines
  • Direct fit replacement with Go Fast Bits TMS benefits
  • Exclusive "pilot actuated" valve mechanism for rapid response at high boost

GFB expands the DV+ range with a direct-fit solution for the weak factory diverter valve used on many European vehicles.

The solenoid coil itself from the factory fitted valve is great (the ECU opens it faster than any pneumatic valve so why replace it), but the weak point however is the valve mechanism itself. So Go Fast Bits DV+ solves this problem by replacing just the valve parts with an anodized billet aluminium housing fitted with a brass piston machined to exacting tolerances.

The end result is sharper throttle response, lightning fast valve actuation and it will hold as much boost as you can throw at it. Read all about the DV+ story on the next page.

Other manufacturer's products involve replacing the entire system with a traditional pneumatic valve, requiring long vacuum hose runs, additional parts for tapping into the intake manifold vacuum, plus either a different solenoid valve to actuate the pneumatic valve or a ballast resistor to plug into the OE wiring loop. All these additional items result in a product that is slower, less responsive, more expensive and takes much longer to install.

The DV+ story: Better performance - more reliable

Exploded view labels snagit

Many late-model European cars use ECU controlled solenoid-type diverter valves. This is a good concept because the valve can react very quickly and it only opens when it needs to.

However, there are some problems with these valves;

  • The diaphragms are weak and known to rupture, especially if boost has been increased. Once this happens, the valve will no longer hold boost pressure.
  • The plastic lip that surrounds the diaphragm is very thin and pieces can break off, potentially ending up going through the turbo.

Additionally, the solenoid on the OE diverter is directly connected to the valve mechanism, which is not ideal because neither it nor the return spring are strong enough to open and close the valve reliably at high boost.

With problems like this, you can see why other aftermarket manufacturers assume the best solution is to replace the factory diverter entirely, or change it to a purely pneumatic system. Unfortunately though, whilst their replacement kits might be stronger than the factory diverter, their slower response speed and lower flow do not justify the extra cost and complexity - more of a compromise than a solution.

GFB has taken a different approach to deliver a complete solution that solves existing problems and improves performance, without compromise or a hefty price tag.

The DV+ addresses the factory valve problems with a very simple and elegant solution. Keeping the factory solenoid, the DV+ retains all the benefits of the stock system. Also replacing the valve parts with indestructable metal components ensures strength and reliability, no matter how much boost you run.

That’s not all; rather than using the solenoid to directly actuate the valve, we’ve introduced a unique “pilot-actuation” system. This means the solenoid only has to control airflow through a small passage that is then used to open and close the piston (rather than opening and closing the piston directly), so it doesn’t matter how much boost you push through it, the DV+ will open and close reliably without ever exceeding the solenoid’s capability.

This feature also improves on the factory system by opening the valve progressively in response to boost pressure, so it only opens as much as required to get the job done (the factory valve simply opens and shuts, it cannot partially open if boost pressure is low), resulting in better throttle response.

Unnecessary replacement kits are a compromise, not a solution
