This valve is for VAG vehicles equipped with the 1.4T, 1.8T & 2.0T FSI or TFSi engines, including the latest models fitted with the IHI turbo, (or 1.4T using additional fitting kit FMBGFK3) that have the electronically controlled bypass valves. It is recommended for any vehicle where the boost pressure has been increased by an ECU software upgrade and for unmodified vehicles fitted with the earlier version of the OEM valve that operate in warmer climates, as a solution to the many failures of the diaphragm that have occurred.
This valve and installation kit replaces the original unit with a pressure/vacuum operated piston valve that still also retains the desirable OEM ECU control over valve actuation. This product has been thoroughly designed and tested with the expressed intent of offering improved valve response and maintaining ECU control while resulting in absolutely NO fault codes, NO check engine lights, and no adverse effects of any kind.
All of the necessary components and detailed instructions are included and everything is designed to make installation as simple as possible.
This will NOT fit the 2013 onwards CMBA and CXSB engines where the turbos are mounted at the rear of the engine bay.
