    Default Best Box?

    Can anyone recommend a good, reliable box for the Vectra facelift with the 150 hp engine?

    There are hundreds, and all of them promise the earth. Caterman, DTUK, Dragonperformance, etc and soforth. Look through some of the threads for a better idea.

    i have a pro bitz box not so aggresive as a caterman and very deceiving it seems to get rid of turbo lag and give extra power when you need it at full thottle, what amazies me more is i,m now running at 52 mpg and the obc is showing the correct figures on a fill to fill i think i could get more on a very well behaved run did try it for 30 miles and it showed an unbelievable 63.4

    Well known fact # 134286: Tuning boxes screw up your (obc) fuel computer reading. Don't believe anything it tells you any more.

    It's more than likely that with a tuning box you'll be using more fuel (black smoking?) rather than less because they're not that sophisticated a device.
