This new blow-off valve from Turbonetics features a dual cross tunnel discharge system with various discharge options. You can use one or two GT-K inspired horns to vent air directly to the atmosphere, or without the horn, you can recirculate for tuning purposes and quieter operation. Turbonetics' exclusive plenum design allows the valve to stay shut and air-tight when it senses boost, so compressor surge is a problem of the past.
