    2015 WRX TGV Deletes - Any reason not to get the cheaper set?

    So I found TGVs from the TIC company for 190$~

    There is another version (same material) on eBay for ~90$

    Any reason to not save a benjamin and get this on ebay?

    Call Torque Solutions and see if they'll price match:

    Torque Solution Billet TGV Delete: Subaru WRX 2015+

    I won't buy parts off of e-bay since there are so many knock-off parts masquerading as quality brands.

    Is Torque Solution reputable? Or No?

    As long as they are machined well and are perfectly flat I don't see why not. I installed some home-made ones from a C&C mill with no problems at all. The TVG deletes on the FA are MUCH simpler than those on the FJ motors.

    But like I said, as long as they are flat and have a smooth surface so the o-rings on either side can seal, I don't see a problem with it.

    I would save the hundy as well since Torque Solutions appear to be a credible/ reputable seller of mod parts and they sell for 95 on their website and 90 on fleabay. Good score I think I will be saving that seller as it s something in time I plan to buy as well.

    The remove the stock TGVs (Tumbler Generator Valve). It's a VERY restrictive and almost useless emission control device located in between the intake manifold and the intake ports. They are open 99% of the time but are only closed during a cold start. Even when open, the bolt alone which has the flaps mounted to it takes up to about 30% of the intake port area. Removing the TGVs yields pretty decent torque gains as it allows more air into the engine. Of course a tune is required.

    I ended up removing mine and the low end torque gains alone is definitely noticeable under WOT. I highly recommend this mod.

    The reason being Ebay mods tend to make things explode lol. TGV Deletes are pretty involved, be prepared with a few hours, a few beers, and another set of hands!
    The Anti-N00b. Use "Search", YES, you need a tune. NO, you don't need a BOV. Don't try to make you car shoot fire, and change your freaking oil.

    Not for the FA20F.

    The process is much simpler -- No injectors, rails, or fuel lines.

    Darn FA20 and it's simple mods and oil changes.

    I've heard great things on the TGV delete. I'll make a video and keep you guys updated on the tube! Stay tuned! I hope to have installed within a week or two.
