Why a diverter valve relocation?
In its stock location the 2.0T diverter valve is located low in the engine bay within the turbo housing. AWE's 2.0T DVR kit is designed to bring the diverter valve higher up in the engine bay, granting easier access for servicing and replacement.
Further, this kit is the only one of its kind that allows the factory diverter valve to be relocated while keeping the wiring unmodified.
Using this FSI relocation kit has the side benefit of reducing intake air temperatures. The factory diverter valve location directs hot, compressed air back into the inlet side of the turbo, resulting in higher intake air temperatures. Once relocated with the AWE Tuning relocation kit, the diverter valve vents cool air from after the intercooler back into the intake which results in lower intake air temps. Less hot air.
