Turbosmart’s latest addition to its model specific blow-off valve range is the new Kompact VR02 valve designed specifically to fit the Hyundai Veloster Turbo.
The Veloster’s factory bypass valve is a plastic unit that becomes brittle and wears out over time. It can also be forced open at high boost levels – especially if boost levels are increased over standard.
The Kompact VR02 is unlike any other Kompact BOV before, featuring a unique design to fit in the tight mounting location of the Veloster’s factory bypass valve. The result is a product that is truly a direct replacement for the OEM valve, requiring no cutting or special tools for a 100% reversible installation.
Machined from billet aluminium, the VR02 cannot be overcome by boost, and it won’t break like the standard plastic item. The Dual Port provides head-turning sound when the driver lets off the throttle, while still routing an amount of air back into the intake, like the standard valve. The Plumb Back configuration routes 100% of air back into the intake for quieter operation.
The Kompact VR02 Dual Port is modular in its design, meaning it is easily adapted from the standard 50-50 setup to either a full recirculating or full vent-to-atmosphere valve, based on the drivers’ preference. Simply unscrew the unwanted fitting and replace it with the included blanking plug.
