Manual Auxiliary Air Valve for Bosch L-Jetronic cars (Alfa Romeo GTV6, Spider, Milano 75)

The most troublesome part of the Bosch L-Jetronic cold starting system is the Aux Air Valve. I hate the Bosch Aux Air Valve. A faulty Bosch AAV can cause the following problems: Difficult or impossible cold starting, the starts and stalls right away syndrome, poor running during warm up, irregular idle, and last but worst of all: horsepower loss.  

It seems that some Bosch AAVs close fully, but don't open very far. This is optimum for horsepower but not for starting in near freezing temperatures. Others open a lot giving great cold starting but don't close all the way which robs some horsepower. With the adjustment nut and a lot of patience you can set up the Bosch AAV to suit your needs...well, sometimes...maybe.

We have found the best solution is to completely replace the Bosch AAV with a manual valve.  It's a permanent fix and will never need to be replaced or cleaned. It also provides even better cold starting and slightly more power than a perfectly functioning Bosch AAV. It's operated by a manual cable - pull it out for starting and push it in after a few minutes of running.

Installation is simple & includes written instructions.  The instructions are written with the Alfa Romeo GTV6 and Milano 75 in mind, but this product can easily be installed on other Bosch L-Jetronic cars such as the Bosch-injected Alfa Spider or various BMW's.
