A blow off or recirculation valve (be it piston, diaphragm or OEM) will be activated by vacuum or electricity, and is designed to improve the drivability of your vehicle giving you maximum power when you want it. All types rely on an internal spring in order to maintain a seal so that you have boost pressure when it is needed - If the spring is too weak, you lose power.
Previously, when an engine was "chipped" or the boost pressure increased, the tuner would need to fit a stronger spring, carefully matched to the increased boost. More recently, with the introduction of electric valves, a tuner would fit an aftermarket replacement valve driven by pressure with an uprated spring. All these remedies rely on the careful matching of the spring rate to the turbocharger boost. This would need to be done each time there was a software, and in some cases hardware change.
For those running switchable software programs, there was no perfect solution and a compromise spring was normally installed, which would often not perform correctly.
Forge are pleased to offer a fit and forget solution. No more changing springs, turning adjusters, or fine tuning. This innovation works straight out the box and will work perfectly on a standard engine, a highly tuned engine, and anywhere in between, without the need to change anything! The IPCV (Intake Pressure Compensation Valve) does it all by itself, ensuring that you always get the maximum power and perfect drivability.
"I’ve done a lot of mods to my R57 MCS , from a big turbo to methanol injection .. but nothing has made such a dramatic change to the throttle response & drivability than the IPCV...I strongly urge anyone looking for instantaneous boost from low-high range to purchase this product immediately."

Forge Motorsport's Intake Pressure Compensation Valve (IPCV) – an idea so ingenious, that we have patented it!
- Please note that the FMIPCV valve is a universal part and model specific instructions are not available. Installation typically requires above average DIY skills, or fitment by a suitably qualified mechanic.
- Enquire by email if you would like the pressure compensation valve fitted at the Forge Motorsport branch in Gloucester.

I have several products from forge and I have always gotten great customer service, with in a few hours I received a message from customer service that my IPC valve would be a few weeks behind due to waiting on a shipment, most every one else I would have to call when my package never arrived. Thanks guys for staying in contact and for being up front

Do not use aggressive (acidic) car cleaning products, particularly traffic film remover solutions or shampoos to clean your intercooler, radiator or oil cooler. The use of these products can damage Forge Motorsport cooling systems and invalidate your warranty. These are often found at car washes. A light, warm, soapy solution (free of harsh acidic cleaning compounds) should be used to clean you cooler and thoroughly rinsed away. We recommend that you should inspect your product on a regular basis for bent and/or crushed fins. Any bent fins should be carefully straightened to allow ambient air to pass through the core face. At the time of installing your Forge radiator, an approved coolant must be used and added to the coolant system. Be sure you never mix coolant and always use distilled water.
