I'd be interested in this info too! What they meant to do, give better performance and fuel usage?

they are all the same i have but i don't know about fitting to the sxi look on the ecotek site thats where i got my info from its on there.If you do get 1 its best to get the filter with it at the same time cos they block up and don't give you much more power and stuff and they normally go on the brake servo.but they r good and they make your car sound louder after a bit to! :D

what you on about mate it fits all models of cars it's universal and cost about £50 then about £20 for the filter that goes with it.bassically it fits between your brake servo and inlet manifold it improves the way the car runs and gives you better fuel economy they are noisy little things if you don't get the air filter that goes with it.they also lower emmisions

Ok, found it!

www.ecotekplc.com

There are pics of it on a 2002 Corsa C, details of what it does, and a list of suppliers, of which there loads, everywhere. Just read on migweb that someone bought one for £48.99, and now wants to sell it!

Hope this helps ya :)

the ecoteck valve is to aerate the fuel isn't it? to make it burn better or sommat? don't quote me though.

and yes, they make a funny whirring noise
