    Power Boost Control Valve

    Can one of these be fitted to the 1.6 8v? If so, what will it do and will it increase performance?

    Good and bad experiences and advise appreciated.

    Cheers.

    The FSE boost valve is just an adjustable fuel pressure regulator valve. In theory it allows you to increase the pressure on the fuel, which is to aid pickup. When we played with fuel pressures on an engine test rig in work, the pressure doesn't improve throttle response beyond the standard pressure as per the normal settings. Below these the response suffers and I expect the valve would probably help if you had a modified engine or if the original fuel pressure regulator was faulty
