Turbosmart Releases Smart-Port BOV For 2012+ F150 EcoBoost

New from Turbosmart – the Smart-Port Blow Off Valve for 2012+ F150 EcoBoost. This valve eliminates stalling issues while smoothly integrating to factory computer mapping. See more details below.

Official Release:

Ford knows that boost is the way of the future. Their EcoBoost technology engines are designed to deliver power and torque consistent with those of larger displacement, naturally aspirated engines while achieving approximately 20% better fuel efficiency and 15% reduced greenhouse emissions than these same engines. That’s why Ford is expected to offer EcoBoost engine technology in over 90% of its global vehicle line-up.

No one knows boost better than Turbosmart, which makes their world first Smart Port BOV for Ford’s 2012 to current 3.5L Ecoboost F150 and 2015 to current 2.7L Ecoboost F150, as well as the brand new 2017 Ecoboost Raptor, all the more exciting. Another unique feature of this product is that it fits the off-road model and most aftermarket intercoolers, making this truly one of the most versatile valve kits available for your F150. So now, one valve fits all these models.

Stock blow-off valves like those that come standard with the F150 often suffer from a range of problems. The plastic construction can lead to cracking and leaking, and if you want to up the power (who doesn’t?) they can have trouble holding the extra boost.

Turbosmart’s Smart Port blow-off valve system provides a remedy to all these issues. The all aircraft grade aluminium alloy construction means cracking and leaking even under increased boost levels will never be an issue, while new Smart Port technologies provide a serious increase in performance over stock valves.

Turbosmart’s new piston manufacturing process utilizes specialised alloys and coatings, which mean a lighter, faster-moving piston, for razor sharp valve response. Use of a soft spring in the body of the BOV also helps speed up valve response and reduces compressor surge. While the spring on the smart trumpet prevents premature venting of boost. These new technologies result in quicker turbo spool-up and better performance on modern drive-by-wire vehicles like the F150.

Features:

  • Completely eliminate stalling issues that are sometimes seen in vent to atmosphere applications
  • Dramatically reduce compressor surge, at both low throttle and engine load conditions
  • Smoothly integrate with factory computer mapping, without requiring any tuning
  • Easily handle boost pressures beyond 30PSI
