    dont know about the corsa but the astra ones have to have the adjuster on the back or it doesnt run right, dont buy the cheap ones from ebay, get a proper HKS one

    It would probably be better asking all of these questions related to your Corsa on a Corsa forum - they'd be in a better position to help you than a lot of our Astra members

    Welcome, anyway.

    i have bought both genuine items and the replica cheap ones. Difference is; not alot, quality thats it. Yes you will need an adjuster to get the correct pressure to keep the valve closed. I had three of these, now they are all in the shed.... advice... sounds great, but causes way too many running issues.

    whats the sound like with the o.e valve running on the astra mate?

    mine sounds pathetic with it running cant even barley hear it even with the windows down not bad know i have a one way valve though...

    courtenay only seem to recommend the bailey for all vauxhalls really?

    thinking of giving a collins dv a try aparently louder than the baileys?

    where did you get the hks fancy selling it lol
