    Default Dads Diesel

    My dad has a 1.9 150bhp CDti. He recently drove my astra 888CDti and now has taken to crying himself to sleep at night. He is in need of more power and the boys at the astra owners club are all shouting about DTUK green and red boxes. Anybody here got a 1.9 vectra with one of these fitted that can give me the low down on prices, fitting, performance and other usefull details. Also do the standard vectra brakes do te job with the extra power or are a brake upgrade a good idea.
    Any feedback much appreciated
    Cheers

    The caterman box looks to be the best power for money mod.

    What are people getting with this caterman then. BHP and torque wise. Also any major effects on consumption. Surely there is no danger of him bettering the mighty astra 888CDti lol. That reminds me i have heard rumours of 888 re-mapping vectras too any information.

    At a RR meet this weekend, the caterman boxes comfortably beat both 888 and regal remaps....

    What about fitting them then do they require much knowledge under the bonnet.
