    Exclamation AMD Diverter Valve Service Kits??

    Does anyone know where i can get hold of the service kits for the amd diverter valve?



    I phoned up amd and they said they have been discontinued and they wouldn't be stocking the service kits anymore.





    If not does anyone know the sizes of the o-rings, springs....etc used in them?





    Thanks guys

    I just took mine apart and cleaned then regreased everything, seems to be fine, but then mine is low mileage. You could try calling APS to see if they stock the servicing kits, Ed is very helpful.

    Hi if this is the Viper DV. It was made by Turbo Dynamics. Give Pete a call and see if he still has any bits left over. If not the parts should be available from an industrial bolt and bearing type company.

    Nope they were fine. The biggest problem was the cost of making them... They didn't have many problems but unlike Forge etc we didn't make them in house so the cost was high. It was design at the time to get round many of the problems the other DVs on the market had. If you want to know how it compared to the other DV's on the market I think Wak from Vagcheck did a whole load of tests. You might find his old Wak mod site somewhere out there.

    I just used a spray on high temp grease, can't remember the name, seems to work fine on my car, it's not exactly a complex part in the first place. I got mine as part of a groupbuy whilst attending an AmD rolling road session back in the day.

    I would have thought so, it only needs to move up and down, and it gets hot!

    If anyone knows of or is selling a really cheap aftermarket DV, can you please send me a pm.




    Thanks for all the help guys
