Power Boost Valve

Any opinions on if an FSE Power Boost Valve is worth the money for the 16v engines. My car is a 1996 1.8.

Dont think anyone has a boost valve fitted...I was recommended to fit one to cure a lean running problem but have never got round to it.

I had one fitted to a Alfa75 2.5 V6 and it didn't seem to do a lot for the performance. eek!

Think I'll steer clear unless my OE one breaks then. I was half thinking of getting one.

I have one in my Permanent4 - with good results.

Torque is a little, throttle response much better than before.

I use the one from Malpassi.

I adjusted it 3,2 bar, that's within the specification (2,8 to 3,2 bar). Works very nice with the squadra chip.

I want to buy another one for my 75 2.0 TS

Gave more torgue between 3-4000 revs, very little else to notice from it thos to be honest. Strange because i know someone with a 145 2.0 , he fitted one with great results... maybe the 1.8 needs something different.

Wouldnt bother if i were you
