    Power boost valve?? I fitted one to my prelude, had to cut the fuel pipe close to my intake and simply put the valve in. It's meant to put a swirl of air into your fuel. In the end i closed the valve. Found it never done much tbh. BUt anyho, that how i fitted mine..

    They don't always fit BMWs, depends on your fuel pressure regulator IIRC

    years ago I nearly bought one for a Supra Turbo. Contacted TDI Plc (major japanese and specialist tuning). The guys there said whilst they could supply & fit one during the work on my car, they wouldn't advise it as it will probably end up loosing power and making no difference.

    To be honest, from experience, I'm not a fan of these 'bolt on' mods.

    you only need one if your upping boost pressure otherwise it will make no difference if not set right you will get bore wash from too much fuel or melted pistons from not enough get a remap if you want more power plus i have heard that fse valves make your fuel pressure like a yoyo rather than even flow hope this helps

    I fitted one to my civic years ago and made it limit at 5000rpm for some reason even though I tried every posible position on the adjustment and made no difference probally made it a bit slower from the extra weight though
