Strength is important, Realizing that a high-flowing valve like this will see duty in some high-boost environments, we made sure the SV52 tops the class in that category as well, giving it an astonishing boost pressure rating of 300psi!, , The SV52?s unparalleled pressure capacity starts with a monobloc body design, CNC machined from a single aluminium billet that ensures strength without adding unnecessary bulk., , The anodized piston bore creates an extremely hard and low-friction surface on which the single piece aluminum 52.5mm piston glides, and will continue to do so over countless cycles. It features an arrangement of Viton o-ring seals unique to GFB., , Strength and reliability is the primary factor, something that a diaphragm simply cannot match in a high-boost BOV environment. Diaphragms have their place (we use them in our wastegates), as they offer low friction and good sealing capability. However, a rolling diaphragm is only designed to receive a net pressure on one side, which essentially "inflates" it against the walls of the chamber in which it resides, exactly how it is used in a wastegate., , The unique mounting method of the SV52 is one of the ways we?ve been able to save unnecessary bulk., By eliminating the v-band style mount, the piston and its venting ports can sit much lower, which reduces the overall height to a number others can?t match.
