    The CR1 was the first ever box i tried. Decent results but basic analogue system the same as the t-tuning (£65) boxes

    So is a 'Caterman' box the same thing as a t-tuning box?

    Yes m8, i found them and bought one to "have a play" as the price was so cheap. People started naming them after me
    I just wish i had a pound for every one that has been sold as a result

    For what they cost the really are a steal

    So, the same as this Ebay? Only ask as I bought something similar from here some time back which was described as a Caterman. It does appear to increase power and torque but I didn't feel that it was 30bhp - but then again, I don't really know how to judge 30bhp. My vectra is the most powerful car I've had.
