    Ecotek CB-26P Valve Do They Work?

    http://www.potn.co.uk/p75712.htm

    Been Looking at getting one of these for a fews years but now ive found a car im sticking with was planning on getting one.

    Does it do what it says on the tin?? Has anyone got one fitted and seen improvments?? Or just a waste of 50quid??

    My Astra is a mk4 1.4 16v will this valve help with acceleration or not??

    Cheers.

    Thats what I was thinking, Went to motosave last week and some chav working there showed me round his mk4 hatch 1.8 sri, T reg I think...

    Proper blinged up with lit washer jets and chrome wings on wipers...

    He had one on, when he showed me where it went I had exactly the same thought.
    I dont want to be a product of the enviroment.

    please do a search, these things are like marmite...

    There are arguments for and against, although I would suspect that a lot has to do with proper fitting and adjusting.
    Even the instructions are vague on that !
