We recommend servicing your valve every 3 years, or 20,000 miles, whichever comes sooner
This valve is for the Peugeot / BMW Mini 1.6 Turbo engines, as found in the Peugeot 207/307/308 GT Turbo and BMW Mini Cooper S Turbo R56/57 models with the N14 engines.This solution is recommended for any vehicle where the boost pressure has been increased by an ECU software upgrade, and for unmodified vehicles operating in warmer climates, as a solution to the many failures that have occurred.
The most common complaint on the OEM solenoid valve is a split diaphragm, which prevents the valve from opening fully, or not at all. This doesn’t always result in a check engine light as the valve can still be blown open by the boost pressure. We have seen many valves with this problem (see image above). The other problem is that diaphragm retaining ring is made from very thin plastic that goes brittle with heat cycles, and eventually fails. This prevents the diaphragm from sealing with the same problems as mentioned above. This particular failure also results in the valve falling apart upon removal from the turbo; in extreme cases, bits of plastic can enter the turbo and destroy it.
The alternative is a fully engineered solution offering both significantly improved reliability. Our valve is piston based, with no diaphragm to fail, and of all aluminium construction, it replaces the original unit with a pressure/vacuum operated piston valve that still also retains the desirable OEM ECU control over valve actuation. The valve has been proved on the VAG scene for many years. The spring is interchangeable for different levels of boost, and the solenoid is plug and play with the wiring harness, which is included.

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.
