Fifth gear did a review iirc on all these types of product and they said its not worth a penny lol. They did two RR's one on a small engined car and one on a scooby and niether performance had a gain.

there not designed to give you a power boost or more bhp, there designed to clean the fuel injecters and help regain lost bhp if there is any. hope this helps.
