Turbosmart Diverter?

Has anyone run a Turbosmart Diverter in their turbo? I know Forge has one that you need to constantly lubricate. I think I found the TS recirculating diverter. Was wondering if it is worth it.

I dont believe it operates any better than the forge or even the stock unit. Really the only reason to change is for sound.

I thought the diaphragm was the weak link on the stock BPV? I installed a Turbosmart electronic BPV for my Fusion Sport and it seems to be OK in normal driving

I mean mine is doing fine, there might be the occasional failure, but there is a reason Borg Warner uses the design in their EFR series turbos. I've put over 100k on the stock bpv without issue.

Iíve only seen 2-3 of the stock diaphragms tear in 11 years. And I mean thatís between everyone who post stuff on this site.

stock BPV rarely fails. Itís more reliable than the forge one. Forge is really just for sound and appearance.

Wouldnt bither screwing with it.
