    Default Fitted the caterman special

    Took me about 5 mins but i had to cut two pin off on the plug that disconnects from the car. I have to say that i am very impressed so far. its a new car. The engine doesnt seem to work as hard and that turbo lag in 1st gear has now gone. For 70 quid i think its a great,easy,effective mod.
    I assume that this little box is plugged into the fuel rail so im guessins that it somehow increases the fuel pressure.Am i correct??. Does anyone know how it works?.

    it fools the ECU into thinking the fuel pressure is low, so it ups the pump pressure, making the injectors dump more fuel per shot into the cylinder..

    Yes m8, it fools the ECU into thinking the common rail needs a bit more fuel. It is quite clever though as it does wait until the engine is warm before giving full power.

    EDIT: Marks quick on the button tonight folks
