    MaxFlow arrived this week and I did the quick and easy install yesterday.
    Compared to the Forge Valve which I was running before the difference is not that much like compared to the stock platic Bosch valve which came with the Vortech kit.

    But you can definitely feel the difference. The new MaxFlow is acting faster which means it releases the overpressure faster than the stock or the Forge valve - gives you a more responsive throttle.

    Had the issue with the stock or the Forge Valve espacially when racing or drifting. When I was in 2nd or 3rd.....racing around a corner and the rear lost traction - I release the gas a little bit - the stock system couldn't release the overpressure fast enough (espacially at above 4k rpm) so the car was accelerating for another half a second until the boost was out of the system which wasn't really easy to handle as the rear was sliding at that point.

    Now with the new MaxFlow it seems that this issue is solved. As soon as you take your foot of the pedal it stops accelerating.

    This doesn't come from a special valve design but just from the increased diameters which you can see on the pictures.

    What I also did was to remove the lower fascia and replaced it with a metal mesh.
    this really helped to keep the charge temps some degrees lower as with the stock fascia insert the air doesn't really touch the complete Vortech water cooler.

    That hooks up to the vacuum line on your brake booster.

    WOT - overpressure in the vacuum/ intake of the system due to boost.
    release the gas pedal - underpressure in the vacuum/ intake - BOV will open
    and release the overpressure out of your intake system.

    without the vacuum line this BOV won't never open.
    it's the same setup like with the stock Vortech system ... in this case just upgraded with the bigger and better MaxFlow BOV.

    During my test drive I noticed that the transition from boost, and no boost was much smother, and the deceleration whistle is awesome to hear.



    Bosch valve on the left... MAXFLOW RACE BYPASS & BLOWOFF VALVE on the right.

    Where did you get the piping for the Bosch bypass valve? Did you buy the pipe with the adapter on it already?
