not worth it on a standard engine, save your money and get it mapped instead when you have more mods

All they do is raise the fuel pressure, which = nothing on a standard engine

the only time u may possibley need one is if you tune your car to an extent where it needs alot more fuel than the origional injectors can handle, and when this happens its you may as well get bigger injectors lol
