    Ecotek or not to Ecotek

    Has anybody fitted an Ecotek to their S3 with any luck. Mine 02-plate 225 bhp.
    Did have 1 fitted to Golf GTI (150) Mk4, years ago when a new car and improved BHP and gave me 42 MPG, also fitted 1 to an Audi S2 which gave me 30 MPG(trust me thats good!!).

    Further, when i had my S2 the recurculation blow off valve (like the dump valve), WDFV and MAF required to be changed regulary? Is this still the case? Back then i did replace them with S3 items.

    Thanks all. Martin.

    Ecotek is just a controlled air leak. I personally don't want one near my car.

    They have not always worked. I fitted one to my daughters 04 plate Pug GTI 180 brake and it killed the cars MPG, 37 -30 mpg but did make the car run smoother. Now removed.

    Reading others talk about MAFs, i replaced my brothers Seat Cupras because of fuelling issues, made no difference. But i know this is a week point on VAG cars along with both valves have others found this out too?
