I saw a valve on ebay that goes between your headers and cat. It deverts the exahast out right after the headers when activated. do any of you guys have one of these they run around $40 + installation. The add promised 15-25 HP on a N/A engine. what does everybody think?

Ok I went ahead a looked for myself. Here is a link for others to see.

I have seen similar stuff done to older muscle cars but not to small engine like ours. I would feel that you would loose a lot of back preasure with this which could mean a loss of a lot of torque. This would lead me to believe this would not be a good idea at least for a n/a small engine car.

Also read the bottom of the page they will ignore all negative feed back. Hmm kind of makes you think.<img src=icon_smile_dissapprove.gif border=0 align=middle>

the lose of torque only happens up to 3000 rpm. after 3000 pressure is not needed to create torque. So I'm thinking after you hit that point you can switch the valve.

I still think the hp claims may be a little off. Plus the fact that they ignore all negative feed back leeds me to believe that the product is crap and they know it.
