    There are a few members with these fitted now m8.

    I found them last year and fitted one to my old Vectra. To say it was quick was an understatement. I've had various boxes fitted and this was the quickest and for the money is really hard to beat. I've fitted one to my Signum and it too is now a flyer.

    If you do a search on here this box has become known as the "Caterman Special"
    One thread is HERE but there are a few others

    With the 1.9CDTi 120 a tuning box will give you around a 40Bhp increase a re-map will give you around an 80Bhp increase, the Caterman Special is great value £ for Bhp, but if you want more than that it's a re-map you will need

    Thanks Guys, it arrived today. Just waiting for the snow and ice to go away before I fit it.

    I have had a good look at the pics on the forum and think I have got my head round the correct way to connect it.

    Wish me luck

    Well not just as easy as I expected, but by no means difficult once I found the end of the common rail

    Got a'thing plugged in the right way first time and all seems fine.

    A definite power increase, pick up in 4th is outstanding and instant mpg improvement.

    A big thanks to the group for pointing me in the right direction, well done lads ( and lasses)
