GCAP Per­for­mance re­cir­cu­la­tion valves

Performance Vauxhall - - GEAR -

VXR tun­ing spe­cial­ist, GCAP Per­for­mance, has re­leased de­tails of its sig­na­ture line of Tur­bosmart Kom­pact Shor­tie re­cir­cu­la­tion valves for KKK and BorgWarner EFR tur­bocharg­ers (as fit­ted to all As­tra and Corsa VXRs). Fac­tory re­cir­cu­la­tion valves are plas­tic and lack re­in­force­ment around their di­aphragms, which can lead to crack­ing un­der heavy boost, a con­cern for own­ers of tur­bocharged cars with mod­i­fied en­gines. GCAP’s of­fer­ing uses a smart pis­ton de­sign with o-ring seals housed in a ro­bust all-alu­minium body. Of­fered as a ‘plug and play’ so­lu­tion to a com­mon com­plaint, you sim­ply un­bolt the stan­dard re­cir­cu­la­tion valve and in­stall this part with the sup­plied fit­ting kit. It re­ally is that easy, al­though those of you less than con­fi­dent with a set of span­ners will be pleased to know the part can be fit­ted by a tech­ni­cian at GCAP’s Lon­don-based work­shop. The rest of you can or­der di­rect from the com­pany’s on­line store, where you can also view a full ap­pli­ca­tion list. Price £99 Con­tact gcap­shop.co.uk or call 0207 229 3325
