TURBOSMART PART NUMBER: TS-0203-1281
DESCRIPTION: Unlike the standard, plastic valves that use un-reinforced rubber diaphragms and are known to crack under increased boost, the new BorgWarner / KKK / Ecoboost Kompact valves use an O-Ring sealed piston which, coupled with their billet aluminum construction give them over 30PSI boost handling capability.
Designed as a bolt-on replacement of the factory valve on all BorgWarner EFR, KKK and Ecoboost turbos, Kompact Plumb Back provides better boost response and greater boost handling capability thank stock. Plumb Back bypass sends air back into the intake. This Plumb-Back valve will not make the loud blow-off sound that the VTA-type valve TS-0203-1081 does.

On our 2012 F150 Ecoboost the install of both valves took less than 30 minutes. Once you have the front wheels off the truck the turbos are relatively accessible.
