MADE IN AUSTRALIA FOR LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE, WITH A GREAT BLOW OFF VALVE SOUND!
If you're looking for sound with your performance (or performance with your sound!), Go Fast Bits VTA gives you just that! Instead of just venting that factory diverter valve to atmosphere, the VTA replaces the fragile factory valve internals and provides an aggressive blow off valve sound, enhanced throttle response and boost recovery, along with superior boost holding and reliability in extreme conditions.
Go Fast Bits' VTA design philosophy: “Keep what works, replace what doesn’t.”
This means GFB retains ECU control and the solenoid from the factory diverter to ensure the quickest possible response time, without the extra and unnecessary cost of replacing the solenoid like other brands do.
The weak part of the OEM diverter has always been the plastic valve mechanism – this is the part GFB replaces. The VTA features CNC machined billet components that'll last a lifetime, and they also modify the valve operation method for improved performance. The factory diverter valve can only operate in two states – open or closed. When it opens fully at low boost, or during a partial throttle lift mid-corner, it causes increased lag and a noticeably non-linear boost transition.
Go Fast Bits pioneered the use of “pilot operation” in the DV+ range, which works by re-purposing the factory solenoid to control the pressure behind the piston rather than the piston itself. This allows the solenoid stroke to be much shorter, making the response time faster and enhancing the actuation force. More importantly, it allows
the piston to open and close progressively in response to the amount of boost pressure present, which smooths boost transitions and decreases the lag caused by the factory diverter valve. It is this design philosophy that makes the GFB VTA not only the best performing blow off valve solution, but also the best value on the market.
Direct Bolt-On Kit
As you would expect from a Go Fast Bits product, the VTA BOV is a direct bolt-on kit. When GFB says bolt-on, they mean it. Rival products use brackets that don’t bolt up to the OEM diverter mount holes, making them useless on aftermarket intercoolers, and because they have to supply two to cover all year models, the brackets are cheap and flimsy.
GFB's bracket is powder-coated, stainless steel, and engineered to duplicate the footprint of the factory diverter valve mount. This means it fits all 2013 and newer models and aftermarket intercoolers designed to use the OEM diverter valve and bayonet mount. But that's not all, the blanking plug is attached to the bracket so it plugs the recirc and holds it securely in the engine bay.
Why choose a VTA when I can vent the stock diverter to atmosphere?
Whilst you can achieve a blow off sound using the factory diverter, that method will not solve any of the performance or reliability issues that are inherent in the factory diverter valve. The VTA enhances the operation of the diverter valve for both sound and performance.
Why choose a VTA over other brands that include a solenoid as part of their kit?
Because there’s no gain in performance by replacing the factory solenoid, only a much higher price! The VTA with the factory solenoid is the fastest, most responsive, and most cost-effective blow-off solution on the market. Why pay more than you need to?
