Upgrade recirculation valve

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have been looking at upgrading the recirculation valve on my 1.0 Ecoboost fiesta as I have read the standard valves can leak and lose boost.

has anyone fitted one of the uprated metal units like the turbosmart that is available??

does it make any difference in performance??

thanks.

I believe someone on YouTube who was featured on Jamie FYDs video who had that grey zetec s 1 litre turbo said he had the standard blow off valve in it and was able to get the psshh sound.

Yea, I’ve seen that vid, and I believe you get more of the sound from the standard recirculation valve when you fit an induction kit.

but I’m more interested in the quality of the valve as I have read the standard one is poor quality being plastic so it can leak and therefore lose you boost.
