The Maverick X3 Vent to Atmosphere Blow Off Valve (BOV) 2.0 kit is now complete. High performance turbo systems require a BOV when running higher than stock boost pressures. The reason is turbochargers continue to force air into the charge tubes and intercooler even after you lift off the pedal (which closes the throttle). Pumping air against a closed throttle super heats the air in the charge tubes and is damaging to the turbocharger bearing system. Installing a BOV allows this pressure to be released upon the closing of the throttle which increases throttle response in on/off/on throttle conditions by venting the hot compressed air. Version 2.0 has improved sealing for a crisper pressure relief.
The EVP Boost Recirculation Valve (BRV) was designed to improve boost response and prevent turbocharger compressor stalling on the Maverick X3 turbo. Our BRV was made specifically for customers that do not want to hear the “PSSSHH” sound of a BOV or customers that ride in the mud holes, creeks where a traditional BOV can ingest water. Our BRV utilizes a completely sealed closed loop system and the diverted pressure is ducted back to the inlet of the turbocharger through our included silicone hose and adapter fittings.
