    Default Caterman Vs CRD2 - User Review and Comparison

    Hi,
    having run a Caterman box in my SRI 150 CDTI for 25k miles now, I have decided to try out a CRD2 which I bought off here to see what the difference is.

    I am very "used" to the Caterman box and have had no issues but could not refuse the CRD2 as the price was good.

    Anyway, have fitted the box on Friday last week and have done about 100 miles so far ....so a little too early to comment so far.

    Will post my thoughts later this week.

    You don't say who's CRD2 it is?

    If the CRD2 is reprogramable then you can get it turned up to give you more power/torque but it might become a little more smokey. Other than that, they do the same thing just one you can have altered to you liking.

    It's a DTUK box.

    Does it matter? Isn't a CRD2 a Powerklick box at the end of the day? - so they are all the same, just with different resellers stickers stuck on them.

    There are lots of companys using the CRD label, Tunit among them. Just wanted to clarify which he was trying so I could see what type of settings they come with and if it is adjustable.

    I've tried a DTUK CDR2 and they are very adjustable, they effectivly have a two dimensional load based fuel map. It's unfortunate that the model for the 1.9CDTI does not have RPM sensing as that would make it easily as effective as an EDS remap.

    But isn't the CRD2 simply a Powerklick box, which various companies rebadge? There's no such thing as a DTUK CRD2 for example - it's a Powerklick box that has been rebadged - same with other companies who are selling CRD2 boxes, they are all Powerclick boxes inside as I would think Powerklick have the name CRD2 trademarked?

    You can upload different maps, ie more/less pressure for a given accelerator position. The Powerclick CRD2 box is the hardware & firmare, the tunit / DTUK etc is the software, so the boxes can be different and depending on what an individual wants a same supplier box can be different. For instance its like running Internet explorer and Firefox on a windows PC.

    I've just ordered a new DTUK CRD2(07) from Andrew.

    Each company uses their own maps with CRD's and DTUK maps seem to be about the best on the market at the mo.

    Loads of different CRD's about, some with tuning range "jumpers" and 1 map, some with 4-8 selectable maps + tuning range "jumpers" and some with a number dial (like a small clock) instead of selectable jumper positions.
