    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com, here with a review of the C&L bypass valve adapter for 2015 and newer EcoBoost Mustangs.You're gonna want to check out the C&L bypass valve if you still have the OEM bypass valve or solenoid, but you aren't in love with the lack of sound that it provides and you'd much rather have the sound that a blow-off valve produces, but you aren't looking to spend blow-off valve money. You're looking at having to drop over $250 for a true blow-off valve, but the C&L bypass adapter here can get you the same sound effect for about $200 less.Being a factory turbo car, the EcoBoost doesn't come from the factory with a blow-off valve, as everyone in the world of aftermarket turbo life knows it. The car has a bypass valve that doesn't allow the unused air to vent hemispherically, which means you don't get the blow-off valve noise when you build boost and let off the throttle quickly. The C&L adapter will turn the factory bypass valve into a blow-off valve and allow the unused air to vent into the atmosphere, which in turn gives you that crisp release of the pressurized air. What's nice about this is that it's inexpensive when you compare it to the cost of a blow-off valve. It's very easy to install, and it does not require a tune. You aren't changing much here. You're just rerouting the excess air that builds up and isn't used when you spool the turbo and let off the throttle before all that boost is used.The bypass valve itself is made from billet aluminum and it's CNC machined, so it will have a good fit. This one here is anodized black, but C&L does have one that has a mod polished finish for those of you that don't want black.When it comes to price, you're looking at spending about $70 for this bypass valve. To put that in perspective, you can plan on spending $200-plus for a true blow-off valve, so it's safe to say that if you're just looking for the noise, this is a much more budget-friendly way to achieve it.Now, I will say that if you plan on modding your EcoBoost, going with a tune, upping your boost, and then eventually you might be looking at upgrading your charge piping, if you're looking at upgrading your charge piping, then you might consider going with a true blow-off valve instead because you're gonna need to relocate and upgrade the blow-off valve anyways. The stock bypass valve won't be able to be used with the upgraded charge piping.As far as the install goes, it's a very easy install. It should take about a half an hour's time. It's a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you'll need a five-millimeter Allen key as far as tools to get the job done. You need to get to the stock valve on the factory charge piping, disconnect the wiring harness, and remove the bypass valve, just a few five-millimeter Allen head screws. The C&L adapter will be placed between the stock bypass valve and the charge pipe. You can then reinstall the bypass valve with the adapter using the longer bolts that are provided for you. Once they're bolted down, you can just reconnect the wiring harness.Wrapping things up here with the C&L bypass valve adapter, this adapter will vent the unused pressurized air to the atmosphere, which will give the distinct turbo blow-off noise that most turbo people want. It's very easy to install, it doesn't require a tune, and you can check it out more online, right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Distinctive Turbo Sound. The turbocharged EcoBoost Mustang is a great car, but the one thing that hits a sour note with hardcore boost fanatics is the lack of that signature turbo sound. By installing a C&L Bypass Valve Adapter the unused pressurized air will now vent to the atmosphere making that distinct sound all turbo owners know and love.

    Billet Aluminum Construction. Proudly made in the USA from high grade billet aluminum, this C&L Bypass Valve Adapter has been precisely CNC-machined for a perfect OEM style fit. The BPV Adapter is then completed in a black anodized finish for aggressive under hood styling.

    Easy Bolt-On Installation. C&L's Bypass Valve Adapter simply mounts between the factory charge pipe and the stock Bypass valve. C&L includes the necessary hardware needed for an easy bolt-on installation that takes less then an hour.

    Application. This C&L Bypass Valve Adapter is designed for use on 2015 to 2017 EcoBoost Mustangs equipped with the turbocharged 2.3L Inline 4-cylinder engine, that are still running the OEM bypass valve/solenoid. No tune is required for operation.

    do i need any other parts in order to install this blow off or that's all i need to buy

    Burkie

    • The C&L Bypass Valve Adapter will allow your factory bypass valve to vent to atmosphere, rather than recirculate, allowing it to work as a blow off valve. All required components are included.

    will this bypass valve cause my stock turbo to flutter and wil it cause the turbo to spool up slower

    derekt

    • The C&L Bypass Valve Adapter will simply allow your stock bypass valve to vent to atmosphere, as opposed to recirculating the air. This will not cause any issues with turbo compressor surge or flutter, and should have no effect on turbo spool up speed.

    Hi, can you please tell me if the C L bypass valve adapter will work on the 2018 Mustang Ecoboot 2.3 L engine? The range seems to be 2015 - 2017. Was there a change to the 2018 model that prevents its installation and use?

    • The C&L Bypass Valve Adapter has not yet been tested with a 2018 Model to confirm fitment. Once fitment has been confirmed, we will update the product page.

    Installed it easy. Only thing is now on the boost / vacuum gauge it goes back left instead of right ? Is this normal?

    • The C&L Bypass Valve Adapter should not cause the boost gauge to function in reverse. Please contact our customer service department so that we may best assist you in correcting this.

    Will this item void my warranty? If so, is there anywhere I can purchase the OEM screws that needed to be removed to install this part (I lost them)?

    BradM

    • According to the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, a vehicle manufacturer cannot void the warranty of your vehicle due to an aftermarket part unless they can prove that the aftermarket part was the cause of or contributed to the failure of the vehicle (15 U.S.C. 2302 (C)). This means that a vehicle's warranty cannot be "voided;" the dealer can only deny a claim if the stock part failed due to damage or unreasonable use. However, with every warranty there is also a fine print which may include installation of aftermarket parts for a particular reason. For this reason, we would highly recommend speaking with your dealership regarding your warranty and this C&L Bypass Valve Adapter for specific details.

      Easy Install But...

      It gives that blow off sound about every time you let off the gas pedal or depress the clutch just FYI. Can get annoying. It did not fit very well with my CandL cold air intake. Only one way to put it on so I was stuck. It rubs against the cold air pretty decent. I hope it doesn't cause issues down the line.

      Great sitting still or just around town.

      Sounds really cool when parked and pressing the gas pedal or just cruising around town. Absolutely terrible at highway speeds, imagine someone sitting in the passenger seat with an air duster and just holding the nozzle open. Pssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss for long periods and you either have to ease off the gas or tap the peddle to get it to stop just for it to start again at the next cruising speed. Cruise control helps but still annoying. I drive 52 miles a day on highways so I removed it immediately for sanity’s sake.

      Whoosh.... TSSSSSS

      I just installed this product on my 2015..... super awesome! Very easy instructions to follow and like everyone else says, only takes about 15 minutes. Only downside (in my opinion) is if you are holding steady boost, after a little while the excess air constantly expresses. Overall, this was a cost effective way to get that distinctive sound!

      Great product

      It took me about 15 minutes to install this with just a simple little Allen wrench. first just unplug the wire at the bottom of the original valve, unscrew it off, put the CandL bypass bov on between the charge pipe and stock valve, and screw it in with the new bolts they give you. This product has produced the best noise that always puts a smile on your face when you first hear it. Gets compliments all the time and I would highly reccomend.

      This was my first mod in my 2015 Ecoboost and it should be everyone's first mod. It gives off a great blow-off sound and definitely makes heads turn at such a low price.

      ONLY FOR STOCK ECOs

      Sounds terrific and turns heads but if you plan on other performance mods DO NOT get this. I have intake, tune, and downpipe and this adapter doesn’t express air fast enough. I get tons of compressor surge (which is bad) when I get the boost to 15psi . Gonna have to get an actual BOV soon
