    well got the box today, and after a few problems of where to locate box, and me not plugging it in properly..................WOW what a power boost, box comes with 8 settings, 1 being the lowest and 8 being highest, tried it on 3 to start off with, had a run around and could feel boost already, then bumped it up to 6 and felt even faster then when put to highest 8, wheels were still spinning in 3rd! torque in 4th is unreal! doing a motorway journey tomorrow so i will see what it has done for economy but power wise i would defiantly recommend!

    Boxes will make your fuel computer null and void. So don't believe what it says any more. It's likely to over read by around 5-6 mpg and probably more. Boxes are a very inefficient way of getting a power boost and if you use the extra power, then you are also likely to use more fuel, particularly if you have it turned right up. Simple physics really.
