    ECS Race N75 Frequency Valve - Good idea or waste of money?

    As the title says really, does anyone have one of these, and are they worth it?

    I'm aware of what it does, or at least what it says it does.. But is it bad for the turbo? My guess is not, at least on a standard car as the stated 1-3psi increase over the rev range is nothing compared to the 10-15psi increase of a mapped car... I'm just interested to read what everyone else thinks

    For those who don't know what it does, it explains it all in the item description on eBay:

    Don't do it. I've no personal experience but every post about these tends to end in overboosting and limp mode. Keep the N75 stock and get it mapped IMO.

    I heard it was a n75 j valve just rebranded, as in pretty colours on it.and twice the price. Stick to the standard mate
    Word!!!

    Load of ****. Avoid. An n75 doesn't give you power, correct mapping does

    They are supposed to be a little slower to cycle so create a bigger spike on initial spool... generally throw over boost/boost deviation fault codes and go into limp mode... used to work ok on AGU's back in the day but even then they weren't without issues
