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 manufacturers’ 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 loom. All these additional items result in a product that is slower, less responsive, more expensive and takes much longer to install.
GFB’s DV+ solution, on the other hand, is more responsive, less expensive, easier to install, and doesn’t cause compressor surge/turbo flutter. Oh, and it doesn’t require different springs or frequent re-builds.
Fitment Note: This part will NOT fit 2013.5+ Jetta/GLI/Beetle with the Gen 3 1.8T/2.0T engine due to clearance issues with the engine. If you have a Gen 3 EA888 engine with the turbo inlet on the RIGHT side of the engine bay, this valve upgrade will not fit!
