Always leading the market in product design, research and development; our friends at Turbosmart have released their new Kompact range of Blow-off Valves (BOV) for the popular Korean Domestic Market (KDM) Hyundai i20 N and i30 N. Turbosmart expands the Kompact diverter and blow-off valves to include a bolt-on upgrade for the Hyundai i20 N and i30 N. This bolt-on performance upgrade will replace the factory plastic bypass valve with a billet aluminium valve using Turbosmart’s motorsport-proven piston technology to provide greater reliability, throttle response and boost holding capacity over the life of the car! Being a retailer and a workshop, we get the opportunity to not only sell these babies but we can show you how easy it is to install one yourself at home in the garage. There’s really nothing to the i30N BOV in terms of fitment.The factory recirculating valve is located on the intercooler piping just below the airbox. Disconnecting and removing the airbox gives us ample room to unbolt the factory item and install our new Turbosmart Kompact Dual Port BOV. As you can see in the pictures below, there’s ample room for the installation and the BOV definitely lives up to it’s “Kompact” name. After plugging the factory recirculation pipe and reinstallation of the airbox, we hit the road to test out the new mod and the results spoke for themselves… a snappy “rush” between gear changes and when backing off the throttle with no issues with deceleration or stalling. Another nice little mod done and dusted! Check out our online store to hunt down your next Turbosmart BOV. Being WA’s biggest Turbosmart dealer, we have up-to-the-minute inventory tracking online and a heap of Turbosmart goodies on display in our Wangara showroom. We hope to see you in store soon!
