Adding a Blow Off Valve to the Can-Am Maverick turbo system is important to keep the performance up, while maintaining turbo life. With an ECU tune and higher boost levels, the Can-Am can gain 10-15% more power over stock. However unlike other turbocharged vehicles, there is no blow off valve or diverter valve on the turbo system. The purpose of a BOV is not just to sound cool, but it is designed to release the pressure that is built up in the charge side of the system. With nowhere to go, the pressure can cause turbulence to the impeller slowing the spool of the turbo down and causing premature wear. By installing a blow off valve, you can improve boost response, prolong the life of the turbo, and of course, get that cool swoosh sound!
The Agency Power blow off valve for the Can-Am X3 and 1000R can be used in conjunction with any aftermarket turbo hose pipe that has a 1 inch BOV flange. Since the Can-Am Maverick does not come with a blow off valve, many companies like Agency Power manufacture a new blow off valve tube out of aluminum or silicone. These charge tubes main purpose is to improve the air flow but also allow for the installation of a blow off valve. The Agency Power valve is designed to be a 100% vent to atmosphere setup. Each valve is machined from 6061 billet aluminum then anodized in a stealth black finish. The top is laser engraved with the Agency Power cursive logo and directions for adjusting. When the top of the valve rotates, this allows you to adjust the spring tension for your application. You can set the valve to easily vent off pressure or be stiffer to only vent at maximum PSI.
Can-Am X3 upgrades are endless, but making sure your power plant is operating at peak performance is always crucial to having a great time! The large hose that connects from your intercooler to your throttle body is the Can-Am Maverick X3 charge tube also known as a boost tube. There are several reasons why upgrading this tube is important. The factory tube is rubber and when under pressure, this tube can expand. Expansion of this tube can alter the pressure and efficiency. When you are increasing boost pressure, it is common for the factory rubber boost tube to pop off leaving you dead in the dirt until you can reconnect the hose. This is the same principles that we have applied for years in high performance turbocharged vehicles.
The silicone tube is 5mm thick or 4ply making it extremely strong compared to the OEM tube. This newly designed boost tube is pressure tested to 85psi meaning it will never fail you for stock or extreme boosted vehicles. To ensure a very secure system, we supply these boost tubes with high end T-bar clamps. The upgraded boost tube is designed to work with stock or aftermarket intercoolers. One main advantage of this tube is we have added a blow off valve port. The blow off valve port allows you to add a blow off valve to the turbo system which helps alleviate boost pressure from the system when you get on and off the throttle. Any 1 inch flange blow off valve can work such as our own Agency Power vent to atmosphere kit.
Another reason for the design of this boost tube and adding a blow off valve port was to provide a solution to those running our Agency Power upgraded turbocharger. This turbo requires a different shorter silicone tube than stock. So running a blow off valve on the shorter tube was not ideal. For customers that already have our shorter silicone hose kit with blow off valve port for the stock turbo charger, you can use the included 1inch plug to relocate your BOV to the new Boost Tube. Agency Power Boost Tubes come in Black Silicone with the Agency Power Logo.
