Default ***NOW SHIPPING*** A.W.E. Tuning DV1 Diverter Valve

Hi Everyone,

We've come up with a new, lower priced solution for the all too common problem of failed stock diverter valves.

Our new AWE Tuning DV1 Diverter Valve is the by-product of some extensive power development we've been doing on late model Porsches. DV failure on some of these models has been 100% absent.

Even when pushed to beyond 750hp, and no matter the climate or operating environment, we've yet to see one of these Porsche DVs fail.

It was a lot of leg work, but we were able to get exclusive access to this part, as it is normally not available separately from the turbo unit.

Using some clever and simple companion parts, we're excited to be able to offer this economical yet durable solution to the chronic torn DV issue.

No permanent modifications are required for install and it is designed as a serviceable and cheaper alternative to the Bailey Motorsport DV30. The Bailey Motorsport DV30 comes with a Lifetime Warranty vs the shorter 6 month warranty of this unit, hence the lower price.

Our DV1 Diverter Valve is a vacuum actuated Diaphragm Type Diverter Valve, as opposed to the Piston Type Valve manufactured by Bailey. Both designs have proven to be extremely reliable in street, track and dyno testing.


Some highlights:

Direct 1/2 hour bolt on with no permanent modifications to vehicle

Very similar response time to the OEM DV valve.

Extensively street, track, and dyno tested on multiple cars

Priced at $259.90 for a complete set of two DV1s for the 2.7T.

How much is the rebuild kit and do you have any idea on life expectancy?

Yeah, not the best but it could be worse. At least it's got an integrated washer.

Default Rebuild kits are available, but we have yet to see one of these valves fail on us.

Should you need a rebuild kit, it would be $50.

Default With the exchange not looking to get any better

and the price of the Bailey Valve going up, we decided to bring together a few different pre-existing proved parts we sell in order to provide the market with a lower cost alternative.

We still sell the Bailey DV as it is high quality proven piece, this is simply a lower cost option.

Default sorry, but i've had issues with all your products and would never consider buying awe again.

you guys have been a pita to deal with and i have to wait months before something is in stock again to be resent. your so called "warranty" program is a joke on your exhaust manifolds too, pure junk.

Default unfortunately, it seems like a lot of people in the aftermarket car world are just hacks

that being said, there are a lot of really good people too.
