a.k.a. "BPV" or "DV" (Diverter Valve)

Valve which relieves charge pressure by venting air back into the ambient pressure intake tract.

Prevents turbo surge but preserves LTFTs, since measured air will still eventually enter the combustion chamber. Controlled by the N249 valve.

All street cars that use MAFs upstream of a charge pressure relief system should use BPVs rather than blow off valves.
