COBB Tuning XLE BOV - WRX 2002-2007 / STI 2004-2016 / Forester XT 2006-2008
The COBB XLE BOV is a compact and lightweight by-pass valve that is capable of holding very high boost pressure without leaking. Its unique design allows for extremely fast venting of boost when actuated. It is designed to operate in multiple venting modes and can be quickly reconfigured using simple hand tools. Innovative engineering and precision manufacturing result in a compact package able to fit in the confines of a tight engine bay.
The XLE BPV is able to vent pressurized air more quickly than other bypass valves due to several unique design elements. Due to the low weight of the components, the moving parts in the XLE BPV have less inertia and can respond faster than heavier components in other bypass valves. Furthermore, the shapes of the exhaust port and piston face are designed to evacuate air as quickly as possible. The third design element is treatment of the piston with hard anodizing and a Teflon coating that provides low sliding friction, reduces surface wear and minimizes maintenance requirements.
The valve can also be run in 2 configurations, either as a full recirculating unit or as a hybrid unit which will release part of the air into the atmosphere at the top 50% of the piston stroke, making it ideal for normal driving with no downsides, while allowing all the air to escape rapidly when driving the car hard.
