Found it.


A blow-off valve (BOV), dump valve or compressor bypass valve (CBV), is a pressure release system present in most turbocharged engines. Its main purpose is to take the load off the turbocharger when the throttle is suddenly closed.[1]

Sorry man was eating dinner.. a diverter valve is just a blow off valve thats more ornless silent.

Technical terms are it vents compressed air back into the intake stream once you let pff throttle so to avoid compressor surge.

I bypassed where it dumps it back into the intake. Poor man's Blow off valve

I have the SX in the US. It didn't come with ventilated seats. It did come with ventilated seats in the Canadian market.

Same seats, same perforated faux leather fabric.

I'll be really curious if this is something that can be added 3rd party at some point.
