Forge Dump Valve Kit Citroen DS3 1.6 Litre Turbo(FMDVDS3A)
This Blow Off valve is for the Citroen DS3 1.6 Turbo engines, 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 operating in warmer
climates, as a solution to the many failures that have occurred.
The problem is that diaphragm retaining ring is made from very thin
plastic that goes brittle with heat cycles, and eventually fails.Unfortunately
the failure doesn’t always result in a check engine light as the valve
can still be blown open by the boost pressure, so you may not be aware
that you are losing power due to this. This prevents the diaphragm from
sealing This particular failure can also result in the valve falling
apart upon removal from the turbo, and in extreme cases, Forge have heard
of bits of plastic entering the turbo resulting in serious damage.Forge’s alternative is a fully engineered solution offering both significantly
improved reliability. Their valve is piston based , with no diaphragm to
fail, and of all aluminium construction, it replaces the original unit
with a pressure/vacuum operated piston valve that still also retains the
desirable OEM ECU control over valve actuation. The valve has been
proved on the VAG scene for many years. The spring is interchangeable
for different levels of boost, and the solenoid is plug and play with
the wiring harness which is included.
