Cheers...you "sound" more normal now. I might well be tempted by a 172 or a Cup again, but Im extremely happy with the Williams at the moment. Will probably wait until I can afford to run a 172 along side the Willy.
abbs - no, Ive moved down to Hillsborough. Living right opposite Hillsborough park and very near the stadium. Perfect for laughing at pissed off Wednesday fans as they walk past after losing. How about a drive over to Donny to let Craggy have a pop at a Cup?!
Look guys, you are all beginning to fall into the "its better for your car" category due to the fact you feel its better for your car because its running leaner and giving you the feeling its running better.... The fact is that if your car runs leaner its more prone to det, det kills your engine, engines cost 5k+, so whats better, 8-10k miles worth of what you thing is better running or a new engine? simple fact is a new engine is more expensive.... point taken yet?? Fooling the ECU is BAD for your engine, the ecotec does exactly this! ie will knock thousands of miles off your engine What you think is good isnt actually good so take that crap off your car and let it do what it was suppose to do, run with the ECU Tony
last one for now, it gets better.. the official test results were done by a company that no longer exists or can be contacted (Very convenient) and a service manager at Evans Halshaw garage... it is interesting to note that Evans Halshaw are NOT fitting the devices to customers cars.. or recommending such.. the thot plickens.... I will drop a line to Evans Halshaw PLC, the parent company .. on monday, also to the DTI and Warren Labs parent company.. it wil be interesting to see if they KNOW of the tests, and SUPPORT the claims on the ecotek website.. Joe..
I had an Ecotek fitted to my old 1.4 16v Clio and at first it did seem like the car ran that bit better, but the annoying sucking noise never died down, filtering it was of no use and it does all seem a bit half baked. As I mentioned before, if you want to save money on petrol, drive your cars more gently....it will make far more of a difference than an Ecotek and theres no risk of prematurely killing your engine
