Any ipcs of the ecotek Scott? I fancied one of these. Do you notice a difference in either performance or fuel consumption?

Ive got a 1L ive put a induction kit and a ecotek valve that makes it a bit faster.
fast enough to outstrip a 1.2sxi tho?

thing is he got all cocky about ]just[/u] beating me in a bit of a 'drag race' and he just beat me... i had a near full tank, and he had basically no petrol left... if it wasn't for the vast amount of petrol i had, it would've been neck n neck i'm guessin. driving skill prevails once again lol

Not when you know what to do to them and know how to drive.

I popped the bonnet on one of my m8's 1L Active, I asked him where his Engine had gone. There didnt seem to be a lot there to see. Save ya cash for a SRi :D Or stick a tank of Shell Optimax in it, decently set up cone induction kit with a good cold air supply and aslong as his is standard then ya in with a small chance.

Cheers mate, I thought they were two part systems, or am I misreading something?

Also, I take it that it was easy enough to fit. Yes?
