hi all.
I have a forge 006 recirc valve at the moment. aldnd a hurricane induction kit. it makes a small whoosh but i would like a louder one. Im thinking of getting the GFB hybrid valve. I have not got the car chipped. will the car run correcly with this valve on? will i get problems with the air mass sensor?

cheers,

James.

James, You shouldnt have any problems. Only problems to occur where on chipped cars. I want one but not for £150. I would have the missus on my back:no: :no:

I didn't want to mention the price to the other half either
(and mine only cost me £100)
I picked it up from the US while out there on business.
No P&P and it was $140

I nearly bought one off someone of the other site for a £100, but I was a bit screptical that he took it off in favour of a Forge. If I was to get one I would like to try it on my car before handing over my pennies.

If you wern't all the way up in Aberdean I would offer a try of mine.

(its sitting on the side at home until I get my car back)

Are you coming down for TRAX?

If so you could have a go of it then. (I will want it back on the day though :( )

Not going to trax but thanks for the offer. Could you not send it up to me to try for a few days and I will post it back to you. Cheeky I know but worth a try:D

LLoyd, It was not until I noticed the guy replaced it with a forge that it put me off. That and he was haggling over £3.50. I was just standing by my guns:matrix:

The GFB has been now tested on:

Standard Ibiza
Standards Leon

APR Chipped Leon
Impossible Chipped Ibiza
Jabbasport Ibiza
Oettinger Ibiza

And did not work on the chipped ones! However I would like us to have a Dyno Day and have a look more closely at it, I have now taken the Trial one off!

I REALLY want one of these, but only if it works 100%. I have an Oettinger chipped Ibiza so it probably wont work, but hopefully someone will work it out in the end.

Ben. all I can say is that we have tried and tried and no one can deny that and would you really want us to tell you to go and spend the money if it aint working?

Lets do some more tests and then people can trial the one that I have?

I am really looking at getting one of these.. but I am reluctant to spend the cash as I am concerned about it not working..

I have the forge dv007 on it already and so have already spent cash on that.. really want that 'whoosh' though.. lol

I am in two minds whether to just bite the bullet and buy one, or whether to wait and see now that a few others are getting them.. still would like more info on setting one up though to get the correct spring release pressure as I aren't exactly a mechanic n all.. would like to see how my car ran with one on.. but 'try before you buy' isn't exactly possible with a company in OZ is it.. heh

As I said Martin, I may allow the one that I have on Trial to make its rounds but to be fair it works on a standard one and do you want to spend £150 and then chip your car for say £400 and then take it off again?
