    Eek Caterman box WOW!

    Just fitted my new Caterman box (well new to me anyway).

    10 minute job - would have been 5 minutes but I did it in the dark, I was that keen to try it out.

    What a difference it's made to the car, a CDTi 150 bought new in July this year, now with 7000 miles on it.

    Finally I've got the car I thought I was buying - a free-revving engine with plenty of pull. Doesn't feel like I've filled the engine with treacle instead of oil and I seem to have lost the other car I thought I was towing every time I tried to accelerate.

    I'll be interested to see what it can do for my fuel econmy - might finally achieve a 40mpg average with normal driving.

    The idea is that this is a short-term fix till I can save up enough pennies for a BSR remap but this will keep me more than happy while I'm waiting.

    If anyone else is thinking of buying one of these boxes then stop thinking about it and do it!

    Can't hang around here. Just thought of another excuse to go for a drive - bread isn't fresh enough for my sandwiches tomorrow, better just pop to the supermarket and get a loaf

    Well I'm back from getting the loaf, doesn't time fly when you're having fun...

    Still pleased with the diference it's made. Still a bit of turbo lag low down but pulls well higher up. Got a proper test tomorrow, round trip to Manchester - North Wales and back, really looking forward to it for a change
