Bypass Valve / Blow Off Valve

The ST165 and ST185 did not come equipped with an air bypass valve for turbo protection. Due to the lack of spacing and customer support kits were never created for these vehicles. Here is the information about the universal valves available so that you may create your own system. If you are buying a Blow Off Valve, regardless of brand, be sure to get the universal kit unless otherwise specified. For more information about what a Blow Off Valve is, visit the BOV FAQ

Bypass Valve Listing

A bypass valve will release turbo pressure between shifts. The term "bypass" relates to the idea that the turbo air is then rerouted back into the intake. These valves are designed to be fully open in any amount of vacuum, so they can only be routed back into the intake, otherwise stalling would occur. It can be argued this is the "proper" way to release turbo pressure so that no air is ever lost from the intake system. This is also the same setup that the ST205 GT-four and Supra Turbos use.

Standard bypass valve, great starter to preserve turbo life. Has a tendency to hang open during part throttle. Known as a "hoot". They range from $33-$45 retail depending on which version you would like to use.

This bypass valve version of the popular Bailey dump valve is designed to be a high quality upgrade for the Bosch BOV. This is a full metal piece which will not wear out over time. It is also capable of holding very high boost pressure reliably.
