The Turbosmart Electro-Mechanical Blow Off Valve has earned another performance industry award at the 2019 Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association Innovations Awards. This is the second massive industry award that the Kompact EM has received in less than a few months, with the product also gaining the prestigious SEMA Street-Performance Award for 2019.
The AAAA Innovation Awards was no small feat, consisting of complete entry submission and weighted on a marking system of objectives, solutions, innovation, and the result of the product on both the market it services and impacts the Turbosmart business.
The Universal Kompact EM-BOV allows for seamless integration into vehicles which require actuation of the BOV to be controlled via the engine ECU without compromising flow or performance. The new universal Kompact EM BOV range flows at higher levels than existing compressor cover solutions and provides an alternate option where hybrid turbochargers demand more flow to prevent the compressor falling into surge with rapid load changes.
The Kompact EM-BOV Story
During data-intensive rounds of R&D, Turbosmart’s Engineering Team found that OEM valves are commonly built from sub-par materials to speed up their manufacturing process and reduce production costs.
With this knowledge, Turbosmart went about sourcing significant amounts of OEM data, physical turbocharger units, and whole vehicles to develop the product. Using Turbosmart’s unique pressure control system from existing product ranges, Turbosmart quickly implemented the same technology found in their long-standing and successful range of Kompact products with their all billet construction and high-temperature o-rings.
While fitment and construct is something that Turbosmart has long perfected, determining how each vehicle ECU would respond to the solenoid required for the electro-mechanical response was a whole new challenge. Turbosmart wanted to make a unique product that required as little possible input from the user; a true, world-first, plug-n-play solution.
This required significant amounts of fine-tuning to the product to make sure that introducing a solenoid system to the top chamber of the valve responded in the same way across a range of vehicles and offered the customers a hassle-free solution. Again, the R&D department went to work on testing the solution across a range of scenarios, including dyno testing and road testing prototype units under different conditions. With each simulation and test, the product was refined to ensure seamless integration.
Eventually, the Turbosmart Kompact EM-BOV was developed as the world’s first aftermarket replacement Blow Off Valve for both direct fitment and universal replacement. To see the full range of Turbosmart Kompact EM-BOVs, visit www.turbosmart.com today or speak to your local Turbosmart distributor.
