The new GFB Respons TMS Blow Off / Bypass Valve is here!
MotoIQ Staff Report
As the name suggests, the GFB Respons is designed specifically with the aim of improving throttle response and reducing turbo lag. What’s TMS? GFB’s Turbo Management System is the term we apply to our diverter valves that have features designed specifically for the purpose of turbo lag reduction. Tests show that TMS features can return the engine to peak boost up to 30% faster than a factory diverter valve when shifting gears*.
(*Chart shows comparative manifold boost pressure rise during 1st to 2nd gear shift as tested on a CA18DET with a T28 turbo. GFB TMS improvement is seen as a 30% faster return to peak boost, during which time up to 40% more boost is available) On top of the TMS benefits, the Respons also packs GFB’s patented adjustable venting bias system found on the Stealth FX.
This unique system allows the amount of air vented to either recirc or atmosphere to be infinitely varied to change the venting sound like a stereo volume dial! So if you want noise with your performance, the Respons can deliver! By fine-tuning the venting ratio, you CAN achieve a blow-off sound WITHOUT throwing a CEL, running rich, stalling, using more fuel or causing any other problems commonly associated with atmo-venting valves on cars with MAF sensors.
