Default BOV for Laura 1.9 PD

Hello friends ,

Laura is mostly driven by me & its been more than 3 years owning one. Havent done any performance mods on it yet. Dont want to get a remap done too. As of now the BOV is in focus so i need your help on this one on the following;

- Installing the BOV on a diesel ( Pros & Cons ) ?
- Any successful installs on the Laura/Octavia yet ?
- Is it a plug & play install ?
- What would be the performance hike ?
- What would be the cost for the same ?
- Can i install the same BOV into another turbo diesel after i sell this car ?

HELP !!!!

Check this link karan,

might be you can use BOV(Blow Off Value)
It will give more drivable as it slows down the throttle closing and prevents sudden deceleration of turbo turbine.
Blow-off valve functioning and installation

Thanks , but this is pretty much about the working of an BOV & installation part.

My problem being wether the same can be done for diesel turbos ?

Any successful installs yet ?

you dont get off the shelf bovs for turbocharged diesel engines.You could do a DIY but it really isnt suggested because
1-would you really want to experiment on your 20lakh skoda?
2-It is going to sound very very loud!

Well what an interesting idea. Looking forward to read more about this. Why don't you contact RD or RDDreams or maybe pete's for this.

I dunno whether a BOV would be useful since a diesel engine doesn't have any throttle. I don't think it'll make any noise even.

Go down to ranjit's (A.R motosport) and he'll have one fitted for you.
I think it cost aproxx 10grand.
Vee port,greddy, turbosmart have bov's.
And not sure if its different for petrol & Diesels as a TC is for intake.

Why not, if it is a plug & play !

Rightly said, but as of now BOV is on my mind.

Ok since i dont think anybody read my previous post,i am going to post it again in bold.

An aftermarket diesel bov cannot be bolted on the intake of a turbocharged diesel engine

You can't bolt a BOV onto a diesel. Binz is right. It'll take a fair bit of work. You do get kits abroad though.

Jomz, it'll be freakishly loud if you can get it running. Most diesels operate at a minimum of 15psi of boost. BOV sound volume depends on air pressure.

Viper, I was wondering would we get that characteristic "whoosh" sound when somebody lets go of the pedal , and when the throttle closes and the pressure builds before the throttle plate??

There is no throttle plate to start with, right??

Well if we set it to 14psi. you will have a whistling throughout operation. right??

I dunno, Correct me if I'm wrong somewhere.

No, you will need it electronically activated. But the end result, if the BOV works properly, will be just the same. Loud whoosh sound.
