Has any had any issues with these?
What year and size engine? Do you mean the electronic VeePort as mentioned by TangoMike?Has any had any issues with these?
Yo, budJoe, welcome to the forum.
In reference to the EM from Turbosmart, when I initially replaced my failed factory BOV after putting in a new diaphragm only for it to tear and begin losing boost all over again I went with the Turbosmart Veeport EM which I believe you are referencing.
It was very quickly replaced with a full mechanical Turbosmart Smart-port supersonic BOV.
First let me just say it is definitely well made.
However it is basically a mechanical BOV controlled by the ECU in the vehicle.
I was experiencing premature venting on my EM, thinking that it could be adjusted. But it is not adjustable and the ECU still controls it. The EM would open and close and bleed and dump boost at random times. Sometimes at low RPM's, but primarily (for me) at highway speeds in overdrive with the cruise control on, when the truck would accelerate it would dump boost instead of using it to keep the speed. My theory anyway.
Tried to have it adjusted via my tuner guy, but after multiple tries we abandoned it in favor of a full mechanical unit which came with a pigtail that plugs into the factory EBOV harness and lets the ECU do its thing and prevents a CEL.
Funny thing is, when I started having problems with it, I began doing some research and came across a random Youtube video where this guy had very similar issues that I was having with the same TS BOV. Let me see if I can find it again and will post it in a follow up comment.
Your mileage may vary, but for me, full mechanical was the way to go, which I should have done the first time.
Hope that helps.
And on top of that you would think Turbosmart would have came up with some kind of a deflector from snow and dirt if that causes those kind of issues.Yo, bud
Hey I appreciate the video for reference, my truck is a 2020 3.5 ecoboost with Roughly 7000 miles on it. After watching the video It makes complete sense of why you have premature Venting I am not really sure what the problem was I bought the VE August of last year Didn't have any issues with it really that I had noticed I am new to the whole turbo thing. I don't drive the vehicle too much considering I have a work vehicle, But just recently noticed after last weekend driving around That it was that venting at all!! I talked with customer service from Turbo smart had asked me do I do a lot off roading or drive-in the snow. Off roading no snow occasionally. Told me after I drive-in a lot of snow that their valve Should be cleaned and oiled. Which it did not describe that in the instructions. I disconnected it yesterday, took took it apart the cylinder was completely seized in the housing I cleaned, oiled and reinstalled. It is now venting but I am not sure if I created any damage with my turbos. Such a pain in the ass being new to it all.
