We are open during COVID-19 Shutdown
As an auto part supplier / auto repair facility, we are considered an "Essential Business" and are permitted to stay open throughout the manditory shutdown.
We offer the best products at the best price available on every item in our store. All prices are listed in U.S. dollars. Orders placed with us will be charged in U.S. dollars. If you live outside the U.S., this charge is converted by your bank into your local currency and should appear on your credit card statement in that currency.
We will match the published price of any US supplier* -- even their current sales prices! If you find an item advertised at a lower price, make a notation in your online order, call or email us at email@example.com with your price match request (see terms and details below). We'll sell you the SAME item at the SAME price! If you've already purchased the item from us, we'll even price match (for store credit only) as long as you contact us with your request within 7 days of placing your order.
This offer is restricted to identical items offered for sale in writing or on the web. When making your price match request, you must provide us with a link to the competitor's Internet URL for the item, a copy of the written ad or written quotation, which must include Supplier's part number, description and price.
Price Match Terms and Fine Print:
In some cases we may choose not to price match; here are some reasons why:
• The competitor's product is not an exact match (identical manufacturer & model) with ours.
• The competitor with the lower price does not have the item in stock at their warehouse.
• The competitor's total price (including shipping, handling, taxes, etc.) is higher.
• The competitor's product is used, refurbished, reconditioned, or a display model.
• The competitor is not selling in US dollars.
• The product is a clearance or closeout item.
• The item is not found within the first 10 items listed on major search engine results.
• The competitor is not manufacturer authorized or has advertised below the manufacturers minimum allowed price for the item.
* Qualified U.S. Suppliers are established businesses that routinely and regularly sell the item to be matched from an established physical storefront or warehouse.
While we endlessly aim to maintain the accuracy of item availability, descriptions and availability, we reserve the right to correct errors. We reserve the right to choose not to honor this offer.
How to Request a Price Match:
Please send a separate email with the subject header of PRICE MATCH REQUEST. Provide the competitor's name, part number, item description, URL link to the exact item and the competitor's price along with your request to price match. If we agree to match the price, you will be contacted with a confirmation and directions on how to place your order for the price request. In the event we cannot match the price, we will notify you by email.
Alternatively, you may call us with your request. We'd love to talk with you. We generally respond to price match requests within one business day.
When you want no noise, no nonsense, just performance.
European manufacturers like FIAT are pushing their engines to the limit. Get a DV to match!
GFB’s DV+ diverter valve for the 1.4L Turbo FIAT 500 offers a direct-fit performance solution for the weaker factory diverter valves used.
By retaining the factory ECU control and re-circulating the vented air, the DV+ is a purely performance-oriented product that offers the following benefits:
Sharper throttle response
Faster boost recovery on gearshift
Solves boost leaking issues
Built to last
Designed to fit with all FIAT 500 Models featuring the 1.4L Turbo Multi Air Motor
Many late-model European cars like the FIAT use ECU controlled solenoid-type diverter valves. This is a good concept because the valve can react very quickly and it only opens when it needs to.
However, there are some problems with these valves. There are typically two types of solenoid-actuated diverter valves found standard on VAG and European cars, both of which have their shortcomings.
GFB has taken a different approach to deliver a complete solution that solves existing problems and improves performance, without compromise or a hefty price tag.
The DV+ addresses the factory valve problems with a very simple and elegant solution. Keeping the factory solenoid retains all the benefits of the stock system, and replacing the valve parts with indestructible metal components ensures strength and reliability no matter how much boost you run.
That's not all. Rather than using the solenoid to directly actuate the valve, we’ve introduced a unique “pilot-actuation” system. This means the solenoid controls the air pressure that is used to open and close the piston, so it doesn't matter how much boost you push through it, the DV+ will open and close reliably without ever exceeding the solenoid’s capability.
This feature also improves on the factory system by opening the valve progressively in response to boost pressure, so it only opens as much as required to get the job done (the factory valve simply opens and shuts, it cannot partially open if boost pressure is low), resulting in better throttle response.

Performance should not be about compromise – parts should fit correctly and deliver real performance outcomes, without making the car difficult to live with on a daily basis. GFB now has three qualified engineers (mechanical and mechatronic), and a team of dedicated enthusiastic and passionate individuals who make the GFB name what it is today.
