    Not seen them, and I recon they'd only end up throwing an EML and invoing limp-home mode on modern diesels. A modern diesel (DTi, CDTi) are a little smarter than the old diesels with the mechanical boost controllers run off the pump.


    Might work on the old 1.7 Low-Blow or even older Isuzu lumps out of the Mk3 Astra or Cavaliers, but I wouldn't bank on it.

    Yes could be worth a go on the low pressure turbos that were almost a waste of space, they offer a money back guarantee i think.
