Install GFB DV+ F20

Hello you all. I am a newbie on this forum. Bought my first BMW 2 weeks ago. It is a f20, stage 1 tuned 220hp. Today I installed a GFB. It only takes 15 min. Simple and clean install. Throttle response is way better then first. Changing gear with the AT is also faster. Happy Beemer GreetZzz Sidewinder

There's even the site address (on the yellow cover) pictured. The part number looks unclear/misleading though, it takes a bit of extra effort.

Here you are (see the "Vehicle Applications" tab): http://www.gfb.com.au/products/blow-...-abarth-detail . It looks like "No".

4 weeks ago I installed mine, really quick installation. The throttle response became little bit sharper.

Sorry for the late response,
It did changed the blow-off sound a bit and it became more often than it used to be.
The major change is the pedal response.

Still happy with the GVB in combination with stage 1 tuning. The throttle respons, at any speed, is far better than stock. GreetZzz
