Finally got around to fitting my Caterman box yesterday on my 1.9CDTi 150. Easy peasy, 5 minute job and even managed to get the connectors round the right way first time
Took her out for a quick drive and instantly noticed that the accelerator pedal was more responsive. Warmed her right up and then stretched the old girl's legs a bit. Got to say that initially I wasn't very impressed!!! Possibly expecting too much and managed to convince myself that the box wasn't working properly- despite no spanner light or anything.
Went back home and picked the missus up to go into Brum and she said it definitely felt faster. Then a bit later I started to notice a big difference myself! Got onto slip road on the entrance to a nice long private I know and put my foot down and was racing up through the gears - next thing I knew the missus was yelling at me to slow down... checked the speedo and it's a good thing I had just turned onto that private road as I could have ended up bigtime in trouble Weird but it's almost like it took a few miles to 'adjust' to the tuning box!
Anyway, the result is that the Veccy feels much more responsive, driveable and packs more punch across the board - scarily so at top end. So overall very happy and would recommend this £60 'treat' to anyone with a CDTi who wants more pelt but can't quite justify the expensive of one of the £500 remaps! As long as you let them warm up and don't abuse the revs and clutch in the tyre shredding lower gears then I honestly don't think these things can't be beaten in terms of value for money.
Now I'm off out of fit my K&N panel
