TCV Upgrade on a 95" 850 T5 wagon

Post by OBLIVIOUS » Sat Jun 29, 2019 10:47 am


Does anyone know a good alternative to the stock TCV for a 95 850 t5?

I'm currently running a tune that turns up the boost to 1 to 1.2 bar and I've noticed that lately the boost levels have been uneven, and I'm sure that the stock TCV has had enough of it.

I've considered getting IPD's HD TCV but, it's very expensive, and I've read that it's not as good as IPD sets it out to be, so my opinion on that is currently a bit wobbly.

I could always get another stock TCV but, I don't want to buy one that'll just break again.

So, what other options do I have?

over at the performance tuning forum there is a diy for the same ipd unit for 25 bucks. Just doesn't have the sticker. but I haven't used it.
dont over look your compressor bypass diaphragm and heavy duty spring. Ipd has that.
