FAO Anyone about to post a thread relating to 'drag chips', 'electric turbos',......

Ecoteks are for fuel economy not performance and they do work! and the guy who tested his with it on and off, lost 2bhp with it on.

Yeah I gained 2.4 bhp and 2 lb ft by turning the ecotek off. Then again I seem to remember that another member gained when fitting an ecotek?

I'm sure I read somewhere that the ecotek was a load of bollocks and they wre in trouble for making false claims after it was tested by one of the governments agencies!

If you want to save fuel buy a diesel or drive slower...its as simple as that.
Ecotecs are good to pass the MOT without a cat though.

but why would you need higher presure unless you have a moded motor and does it do anything for your un moded motor ?????

it may improve throttle response but there is no big point putting it on a std engine.

It is a good complimentry mod to other things (especialy CAI's)

I can't believe I've got to sticky this again but it seems that people still haven't got a clue. This time I'm copying to the newbie forum as well.

FFS people, do you reply to the flyers that say "earn £500 a week working from home" that seem to be stuck to the sign posts at every junction, or how about replying to the emails from the Ugandan president's uncle's stepson's brother's cousin that just happens to need to use your account to drop a healthy 10 mil in, or phone the number on the scratchcard that came free with the daily sport, for which you won a brand new sports car, to claim but not bothering to read the small print to see that it costs 5 quid a minute with a minimum 10 minute call?

In fact I know you must otherwise these people wouldn't bother putting the flyers out or sending the emails or scratchcards.
 
If I had a bit to invest I'd SO send out a load of those scratch cards, must be like taking sweets from a pram as all the chavs phone up...(yes, I've done it too!)
