    forge diverter d.v

    Fitted my new forge d.v tonight,fiddly as *****,took me 45 mins,doesnt sound much louder,if at all,but i don't know wether it is because my car is in my good books today due to my rr results today,but it feels a bit more responsive between gear changes,might be in my head though,man can't believe how cheap and nasty the standard one is when i took it out,looks like it came from the happy shopper range
    197.2 h.p and 230lbs,not bad for standard

    a well worth mod in my books regardless of price

    i paid 155 for the EvoMS one before I knew about the Forge one but still its saved my turbo from the dreaded chatter etc and a mod Id advise to any VXR turbo owner

    Hi all,
    Will a Regal or Forge Diverter valve fit a Z20LET turbo?
    Or is this just for the VXR one?

    the OE recirc valve housing is a lot deeper on the LEH turbo and therefore why I believe the aftermarket valves dont fit the LET units

    although the compressor housing is almost identical - theres a few minor differences and the recirc valve is one of them

    I may be incorrect though if anyone has fitted one to a LET

    They do 100% fit on the LET turbo's as they are the same unit
    they will also fit on a 997 turbo
