Can anyone remember which months total vauxhall had the guide to this, and what bhp increase it was proven to have gained? Thinking about doin this as the next step.

think the best way to do it is run it with a venier (sp) then you can dial it in better, think the gains are about 7-10bhp but i may be wrong

Is there a way to tell a good 2nd hand one, to a worn 2nd hand one? I understandabout blue, or very worn lobes, but how to tell a mint one? As a new one from vaux is over 200quid! and a 2nd hand one is about 30 quid lol!

If you were really that bothered I think the only way to properly check it would be with a DTI or similair suitable measuring eqipment.

For what it's worth, i'd put your hand in your pocket and buy a brand new one.

Fuck using a DTI

Yeh, it is the only way I think. But the point I was making is it's a bit OTT just to save a few
