    Buy it. Book a rolling road. Do a 'before' run. Fit kit. Do an 'after' run. Any difference? Yes. Keep it on. No. Send it back. Unless, of course, you can't resist the 'shiney-shiney'.

    Bear in mind that diesels work on the 'excess air' principle and run a very weak air/fuel mixture anyway, at least until they get near to or beyond the smoke limit where you might see some gains. And they do not benefit from having air rammed into the turbo because the turbo compressor is already being driven at much higher speeds by exhaust gas being pumped around its exhaust gas impeller. Wasn't it nutron who used a leaf blower to simulate the same thing? Result. Big 0. May be different on yours though. Maybe not. Do work on NA petrol engines (remember those big American V8s that had ram air systems?), but not well enough to pay £111 for.

    Or you could just ignore what I've put.

    That is the most sensible bit of advice you have ever produced.

    I thank you!

    Have you ordered yours already?

    Go on! You know you can't resist the 'shiney-shiney'. LOL

    Awaits inevitable: "I fitted one of these and now I can keep up with Porsches!" comments.

    No. I can't be arsed.
