    Default Caterman Box - 1.9 CDTI 120

    Bought for the Vectra Estate I owned briefly recently and used for less than a week before the car went back to the dealers.

    Does exactly what it says on the tin - definitely an increase in low down shove etc.

    The supplier asked me whether the car has a DPF or not before sending it, so I presume it's been mapped taking this into account.

    £50 inc. postage.

    Well... I have to say it didn't give my Vectra as much of a kick up the butt as the tuning boxes I've had in the past on a series of non-PD VW 1.9 TDis... but then those are adjustable, and this isn't.

    Apart from trying to cover their **** by implying they've loaded a map specific for DPF inflicted cars, I can't see any reason, other than it has actually been modded to suit them, for the supplier to want to know whether a DPF is present or not before completing the order.

    The car seemed happy enough with it on, anyway.

    Sounds like that to me! There's no way a tuning box can be adjusted to work better with a DPF. The tuning box simply causes more fuel to be delivered into the injectors - there's no way it can alter the DPF regeneration cycle - only a remap can do that.

    hiya bud - do you make these units then?

    are they easy to fit? (bear in mind i'm a numpty when it comes to cars)!

    does adding a mod like this require any additional modding too?

    If it's using resistors to generate the gain in fueling (as with the PD VAG ones at least), then they may have used lower rated resistors to reduce the amount of extra fuel being fed through to the injectors, so yes... whilst you can't physically alter the DPF regeneration cycles with one of these boxes, you can adjust just how much extra fuel it's using, ergo, less excess fuel = less soiling of the DPF, hence why, given this didn't seem to give as much of a prod in the back as the VAG TDis I've chipped in the past, I suspect this has been done with this box.

    All that aside, I'd be grateful if the debate as to whether tuning boxes and DPFs mix was continued in one of the many threads elsewhere on the board dedicated to the subject, rather than ruining any chance I have of recouping some money back on this particular box, as it worked fine on my car and I've not tried to mislead anyone as to its suitability.

    Cheers.

    I removed the plastic cover off my engine... then realised you don't really have to do this on the 120s, as you have as much access to the end of the common rail with it in place, as you have without.
