    Default Caterman questions

    I've just fitted a Caterman box to my 150 cdti. It seems a bit quicker, I think, but also a bit 'peakier' like there's a more specific peak rev band. A couple of trips on the usual work run should be a good comparison so I've got that to come. However, some questions please:

    How does it affect warranty - do you just whip it out before the service and can its (previous) use be detected?

    What's the experience long-term. Presumably the engine is optimised for reliability and long life - does constant use of a 're-map' affect engine life?

    Who's used one for some considerable time?

    What about insurance - anyone declare it?

    Yes m8, remove it before you go to the dealers It is not detectable once removed.

    I had 3 different types in 18 months with no problem except the fuel pump had to be replaced (something related or not i don't know?) If you thrash any car around it will have problems. Driven sensibly you should be ok. you do have to have the odd "blast" every so often though

    Insurance, deffo declare it!
