At Turbosmart, we’ve always been big fans of Ford’s EcoBoost engines. Ford has seen the future as one with boost – and that makes us happy. We were the first to release an aftermarket blow-off valve for the Mustang EcoBoost with the Kompact Shortie Dual Port, and we kept up that enthusiasm and momentum with more products for this expanding range of EcoBoost vechicles.
Now, we’re proud to release the next evolution in our EcoBoost range, the Kompact Shortie Plumb Back blow-off valve, with versions designed to fit the Mustang EcoBoost, Fiesta ST and Fusion 1.6 EcoBoost.
Turbosmart’s new Kompact Shortie Plumb Back is a direct replacement for the standard blow-off valve, fitting neatly on the compressor cover of the turbocharger.
Response, Performance, Durability
The Kompact Shortie may be small in size, but it’s big on quality and performance. The Shortie is a direct replacement for the EcoBoost’s standard blow-off valve. That standard blow-off valve is plastic, often leaks, and can eventually crack, especially when boost levels are increased over standard. The Shortie offers improved valve response thanks to its lightweight piston, while its precision billet construction gives better sealing and durability, and up to 30psi boost handling capability. That sharper valve response means boost builds faster, while the better sealing means it holds on longer, giving you more power throughout the rev range even in an otherwise standard car.
The Plumb Back is a fully recirculating valve, so all vented air is routed back into the vehicle’s intake. The Plumb Back offers all the benefits of a Turbosmart BOV, but with quiet operation, so it doesn’t attract any unwanted attention.
Quality is at the heart of every Turbosmart product, so the Shortie not only improves the performance of your EcoBoost engine, but it also guards against potentially damaging compressor surge – and will do so for a long time.

Something for everyone
The Shortie Plumb Back joins a vast range of Turbosmart products for Ford EcoBoost models, including the existing Dual Port Shortie for the Mustang, Fiesta and Fusion. The Dual Port features one recirculating port, so the car’s computer does not produce error codes, and one vent-to-atmosphere port for big blow-off valve sound.
