What if any performance gains from GV+? Or is it just more lively feeling ?
Exactly my experience too. Installed my DV+ 2 weeks ago so the difference feeling is fresh in my memory.the performance overall seems to be the same, but where this thing is great is when you are tooling around moving slow in stop and go traffic. it seems like you are on boost at considerably lower rpm's.
I have stalled my car a few times before the replacement in traffic. it seemed like the engine was not generating any power below 1500 rpm, causing a stall. if not stalling it was a bit jerky in transition from idle to low rpm crawling. the installation of the d/v seems to have cured this condition, also when shifting the transition is also much smoother.
I know learning a new clutch is sometimes getting to know the feel of a new car, but having driven manuals for 33 years now I have a decent level of mastery of a manual cog swapper.
this d/v based on ease of installation and noted improvement in operation is a must have.....
The GFB valve does help the automatic cars, but the benefits are reduced. It will leak a little less which allows the engine to build boost slightly earlier as with the manual, but the automatic masks that a little. The changes during shifts are negligible in most situations with this product and the automatic.will it affect the automatic just as much as the manual? or are the comments on smoother shifting and holding boost during shift mostly for the manual?
And, who you might want providing tech support if needed. Although with this particular product, and all the knowledge of it on this forum, I don't see that being a big factor.all of the dealers have the same price, so I guess it really does not matter who you get them from. the only difference might be shipping
They're pretty common across the Dart, Fiat 500, and 124 suppliers, and the prices are all pretty close with S&H, because of the MAP (minimum advertised price). I'd suggest shopping from a vendor that has an enthusiast-centered base rather than a random Amazon / eBay source. The part is the same for all the FCA 1.4 turbo applications (Dart, 500, Renegade, 500X, etc.).Where is the best place to buy one ?
