IMPORTANT NOTES ON YOUR ANTILAG VALVE  
-
Turbosmart accepts no responsibility whatsoever for incorrect installation of this product which is potentially hazardous and can cause serious  
engine damage or personal injury.  
-
-
Antilag produces excessive heat in the exhaust system and may shorten the life of your exhaust manifold and turbo  
Consult your local specialist before setting your setting your antilag valve, setting antilag levels beyond your engines capability may result in  
engine or turbo damage.  
-
-
Use only high-quality fittings ensuring maximum sealing reliability. Optional Turbosmart fitting kit available.  
Turbosmarts ALV valve is recommended for race applications only.  
RECOMMENDATIONS  
-
-
-
-
Allow for adequate cool airflow around the top diaphragm housing  
DO NOT Mount the ALV so that the top diaphragm housing is less than 100mm from a heat source  
DO NOT wrap the body of the ALV with exhaust wrap  
Fitting your Gen V ALV may require fabrication or modification to your exhaust manifold. Turbosmart recommends that your ALV is  
fitted by an appropriately qualified technician.  
-
Fitting the ALV to your turbocharger system introduces fresh air into the exhaust system post engine and therefore air fuel ratios will show as  
lean.  
-
-
Turbosmart recommends that antilag settings are set using a dynamometer and not on public roads.  
Turbosmart recommends that a boost gauge be permanently fitted to the vehicle.

FITTING YOUR GEN V ALV

ALV  
Mounting your New Turbosmart Gen V ALV  
(Anti Lag Valve)  
1
The weld flanges should be welded to your exhaust system. The  
weld flanges are compatible with stainless steel and mild steel  
welding rod material.  
For best results tubes should be plumbed into the turbo manifold  
as close to the exhaust port of the engine for maximum efficiency.  
Turbosmart Weld flanges are designed to accept 19mm (3/4”)  
tube, large diameter tubes with the least amount of restriction will  
achieve a higher amount of usable energy in the manifold.

CAUTION!  
Do not place the actuator cap near a significant heat source  
as this could shorten the life of the diaphragm.  
CAUTION!

housing  
Use of the Antilag valve produces excessive heat in the  
exhaust manifold and turbo and may result in shorter than  
expected life.  
ALV  
Fitting the Gen V ALV  
2
Prior to mounting the Gen V ALV, place v-band over weld on  
flange by unscrewing the nut on the v-band as far out as possible  
and then squeezing the bolt in a syringe motion to expand the v-  
band (squeeze the dots together below). Once the v-band is in  
its fully expanded position, slide the v-band over the flange to  
allow for the ALV to be installed.

Runners  
Control  
Do not forget to put the valve seat into the body before mounting  
the unit on the exhaust manifold. Using the 3/8” deep socket and  
a torque wrench Tighten the V-Band to 7N.m (5 ft/lbs). Ensure  
the Anti Lag Valve is home correctly while torqueing the nut to  
not have a false torque as this will likely contribute to exhaust  
leaks. Ensure O-Ring is in place on the inlet compressed air side  
Turbo  
Flange  
Plumbing the antilag valve into the exhaust port maximises the  
thermal energy from the exhaust to increase the flame front with  
fresh air and unburnt fuel.  
Connect the inlet of the ALV to the charge intercooler piping pre-  
throttle body, having the pipe and attached at and angle in the  
direction of flow may help the efficiency of the system.

Fit Actuator Port Fittings  
3
Fit lower Top and Bottom port fittings prior to mounting the ALV,  
install 1/8” NPT blank with 3/16” hex key and signal nipple into  
opposite side ports. Port order or orientation is not important,  
select which suits your packaging requirements. Apply thread  
lubricant and screw in clockwise until finger tight, then tighten  
further 1-2 turns for seal.  
NOTE!  
If you are unsure which port to install fittings into, please  
refer to ‘Control Hookup’ section, refer to table of contents  
for page number.  
Control Hookup  
4
Depending in the control strategy of the antilag valve, the  
hook-up method may vary, below is a couple of examples  
but is not limited to.  
WARNING!  
Antilag results in a reduction of vacuum produced which  
affects the effectiveness of vacuum assist brake boosters.  
IMPORTANT!  
Antilag requires advanced tuning techniques and specific  
controls, Turbosmart recommends this system be setup by  
professionals only.

Vacuum Pump  
4.1  
When using your Gen V Anti Lag Valve in conjunction with a vacuum pump, fit a 4-port solenoid (sold separately TS-0301-2003)  
with normally open ports to the bottom port of the solenoid to the bottom port of the valve. Plumb the top port to the switched port A  
of the solenoid to activate the valve. Your ECU should be configured to open the valve when ALS operation is desired.

Tuning Strategies  
CAUTION!  
-
-
-
Tuning your antilag valve should be done by a professional  
Antilag valve is for race applications only  
The use of antilag creates excessive heat in the exhaust manifold and can shorten the life of turbo, exhaust manifold and related  
systems  
Activation and Shut Down  
Tuning  
1
2
Criteria should be established within the ECU to control the  
antilag valve, a minimum throttle percentage and delay to arm  
the system with arming achieved when throttle is released with  
an active time limit set.  
Each engine and set up will require different parameters to  
achieve the desired results. Typically, a combination of ignition  
retard, ignition cut, and fuel trim can be used to increase and  
decrease the effectiveness of the system  
It is a good idea to have limits set up to shut down the antilag  
system if too much heat is being produced. Exhaust temperature  
sensors and engine temp should be monitored and allowed to  
deactivate the system if bordering dangerous levels.  
Outputs should be set up to open and close the valve when  
enabled.  
NOTE!  
For best results any bypass valves in the system should be  
forced closed when in enabled.

Ensure diaphragm is contained within the groove prior to cap re-assembly.  
Pay attention not to rotate diaphragm.  
Remove ALV from Manifold  
spring to expand, finally remove cap when the spring has  
stopped expanding.

Remove boost pressure source hose from the ALV as well as the  
breather hose is fitted. Unscrew outlet V-Band nut in a anti-  
clockwise direction to the very end of the thread, Squeeze the  
nut against the V-Band in a syringe like motion to expand the V-  
band over the flange. Repeat for inlet V-Band. Remove Gen V  
ALV being careful not to lose the valve seat. Mark the orientation  
of the valve to the body with tape or a paint pen.  
CAUTION!

Sit the new valve circlip on top of the valve ensuring it is  
concentric, Use the valve retaining cap on top of the circlip to  
lightly press the new circlip over the valve into place, Confirm the  
circlip is located correctly in the circlip groove of the valve, adjust  
if necessary. Let the valve drop down into the diaphragm, sit the  
new spring washer onto the nipple of the valve with the outside  
of the cone away from the valve. Apply a dab of blue 243 Loctite  
to the lower threads of the valve retaining cap and screw into the  
diaphragm. Support the diaphragm with the supplied tool and  
tighten the valve retaining cap to 20N.m (15ft/lbs)

Connect the wires to your data logger accordingly. Use a high-  
quality connection to reduce noise and calibration fluctuation.  
Ensure that the wiring is properly shielded from external heat  
sources.  
CAUTION!  
To ensure longevity from the sensor, ensure adequate  
airflow is supplied directly to the sensor to avoid  
overheating or sensor failure.  
Turbosmart HE sensor has an operation temperature  
window of -40C up to 170ºC (340ºF) junction temperature,  
for temperatures outside of this window the VOUT will  
revert to less than 2.5V  
Temperature exposure above 260ºC (500ºF) can cause  
permanent damage to the sensor.  
CAUTION!  
Do not forget to place valve seat into the body before  
mounting the ALV on the exhaust manifold. Use a 3/8”  
deep socket and torque the V-Band to 7N.m (5 ft/lbs)

TROUBLE SHOOTING  
-
-
-
-
ALV not actuating - Confirm preload on valve seat during installation  
Poor ALV actuation - Ensure signal hose is connected to a quality pressure source, check seal on fittings  
Poor ALV actuation - Confirm ports are not blocked and free from debris  
Failing the above, submit a technical request to [email protected] with information of your engine configuration and  
photos of installation
