When Ford moved to offer turbocharged motors for the world's most popular truck, an entirely new crowd of enthusiasts came forward to modify it. The 3.5 liter twin-turbocharged V6 and the newer 2.7 liter turbocharged V6 offer great value for the performance while also receiving improved fuel economy while driving. These engines can be tuned easily as well as are easy to maintain with regular use. With how many people push these engines to their limits, we joined in as well as it first began in order to ensure we get some of the fun with them too.
With a turbocharged car, releasing excess pressure is a helpful way of ensuring the turbos don’t build up excess pressure. At the same time, ensuring that your vehicle spools up and stays in boost for longer, excess air needs to be released as well. This is exactly where the blow-off valve comes into play. With a blow-off valve installed, your truck will be able to stay spooled for longer without causing any damage in the process. These blow-off valves help release pressurized air that may not get used by the engine as it is brought in by the turbochargers.
Here at Steeda, we have been developing and upgrading Ford’s performance offerings for over 35 years and in that time we have seen which parts are successful when installed properly on these vehicles. We have installed and used these blow-off valves on our personal and work trucks to ensure the performance benefits are available at any speed. We love how these trucks sound with them in addition to the benefit they provide, and we know you will love it on yours too.
