The diverter valve is the small plastic valve body on the rubber elbow?
How would I check it?
Yes, I can probably change the internals - I had a modded 3 LDZ. As long as the plate and housing body tie up with 930 or 930 S spec, I would be OK.
Looks like we are looking for another 7006 core.
Diverter valve: First, use a vacuum tested on the vacuum port of the valve. If it holds vac, that's good. Second, remove the vacuum line and try to blow through the side port (90deg to the vac port). If it holds air, that's good; if not, junk it.

We can put together a helluva cheater turbo that from the outside will look like a plain K27.

On high flow turbos like this, we sometimes fit a 2nd OEM diverter valve.
