ATTENTION MK7.5 · B8.5 · C7.5 · 8.5V OWNERS:
Although MOST parts DO FIT FACELIFT MODELS such as the MK7.5, C7.5 and B8.5, some components such as exhaust systems and headlights are NOT ALWAYS perfectly upward compatible and vice versa due to minor changes in body design such as fenders, bumper and valences.
Please contact us via chat, phone or eMail if you are uncertain about product fitment on your facelift model.
GFB DV+ EA888
The solenoid coil itself from the factory-fitted valve is great (the ECU opens it faster than any pneumatic valve so why replace it?), but the weak point however is the valve mechanism itself. So GFB’s DV+ solves this problem by replacing just the valve parts with an anodized billet aluminum housing fitted with a brass piston machined to exacting tolerances.
Other manufacturers’ products involve replacing the entire system with a traditional pneumatic valve, requiring long vacuum hose runs, additional parts for tapping into the intake manifold vacuum, plus either a different solenoid valve to actuate the pneumatic valve or a ballast resistor to plug into the OE wiring loom. All these additional items result in a product that is slower, less responsive, more expensive and takes much longer to install.
Usually, the GFB T9351 DV+ is used on Audi/VW models, but because of the larger turbo used on the Mk7 Golf R and 8V S3 there is a distinct lack of space behind the diverter that prevents the T9351 from being fitted on these cars.
Sure, you could grind away some plastic and bend the intake pipe a little to make it fit, but that’s not really GFB’s idea of a “bolt-on” kit. The T9359 solves this issue using a bespoke billet aluminium body that re-orients the solenoid to gain the clearance required for a perfect fit. A 5 axis CNC machine is required to accommodate the larger size and extra complexity of this design, resulting in a true bolt-on solution that does not require any modifications to the car, and a fit that retains a factory-looking appearance.
- Retains the factory solenoid coil for seamless integration
- Replaces plastic valve parts with metal for reliability and strength on chipped engines
- Direct-fit replacement with GFB’s TMS benefits
- Exclusive “pilot-actuated” valve mechanism for rapid response at high boost
