    Default Zooooooooooooommmmm!!!!

    well the caterman special arrived today and was fitted in about 5 mins.you can definitly tell the difference,i think i was expecting more of a push back in your seat delivery but i think i need nos for that! personally i think the delivery seems better as it seems to eliminate the big snap of the turbo and just keeps pulling through all the gears right over the rev range.i was able to pull away in 6th like i was in 4th.i didnt try it for long as im still to swap over insurance so just a couple of lengths up and down the private runway! and 100mph soon came and went!i think the way you will notice the difference best is when you will be overtaking so pound for hp id say this is probably probably the best option there is. Has anyone had proof they give you 190bhp yet ie rolling road?

    cant help with the actual figs but it certainly makes the car much more urgent as you have found.

    My findings are:-

    • It took a few miles for the ECU to settle down and it seemed to increase the power the Longer the box was on
    • That the MPG was largeley unaffacted - averaging 44mpg at the moment and achieved 51mpg on a run on the motorway which was a round trip of 500 miles
    • The turbo whistle seems louder......?!
    I did a translation of the sellers ebay page and it talked about the fact that boxes read engine temps and dont release the full box potential until the engine reaches a certain temp.....which is great

    I had reason to disconnect the battery at the weekend and it seems to have improved even more.....I dont know if that is possible.

    All in all, a great buy and well done to Caterman for finding such a great product.

    Mine is still getting better after a few weeks It does definately hold back until the engine is warm as i went to the tip on sunday morning, (4 miles or so) Left it ticking over whilst dumping the rubbish for 10 mins or so. The drive on the way home was totally different The rubbish was only cardboard boxes and an old drawer unit so no weight in the car. It pulled much better and felt more "alive" somehow

    Anyone think that the engine itself (not turbo) is a little noisier with the box on.....?
