Edd didn't mention when they'd have it ready for sale @D84rk_Knight . They took some pics and will create a fitting guide and then have them for sale I think. Send Edd a PM and I'm sure he'll give you a better idea.

Pics to follow of it's fitment on my car.

Here's a couple of pics of where the guys fitted the box.

2 connectors into the loom, one very easily found at the top of the engine, the other is unfortunately under the air box so requires it's removal to access it. Only a couple of bolts though so a quick job. The box of tricks is neatly hidden inside a cloth black bag and tie wrapped just in front of the battery,

No seriously, I am genuinly curious about the 0-60 improvements on the 1.0L, got any estimates?

A better measurement is 100-200 (km/h) because then it doesn't matter if you're a good driver, it all depends on the car. That said...if your car can reach 200km/h off course
0-60 is a psychological thing for me and, in my head at least, the benchmark for how well or badly a car performs.
I know 100-200 and 80-120 and similar rolling accelerations are more usefull in real life than a 0-60, but I dont care

That said, the 1.0L has the same top speeds as the 1.5L, even with a CVT

great, what I was expecting to read

not bad

I understand your preferences, but why not profit from both?
I also believe one automatically comes with the other

If 0-60 and top speed (the latter I dont care about myself) improves, I would expect that torque, powerdelivery, pulling power etc are automatically improved as well, like an added bonus.

I agree to a point that the 2 go together
but you can have a car with fantastic 0 to 60 times but wont go much faster
a good 0 to 60 can be that the car is pretty low geared

I understand. You're right about that one.

It wasn't specifically aimed at you, just generally

Some cars can hit 0-60 in 2nd gear in manual transmission so making good headline figures for manufacturers due to a gear change less then loses out after that 0-70 80

The only warning lights I saw all day were the one's on the dashboard of the Ibiza courtesy car!

Edd didn't mention anything about any warning lights on the Civic so I presume all must have been ok.

I also get you, and here is the proof of what you mean, I think

Not that I think the mustang has an 'amazing' 0-60 time

We had no issues whatsoever resetting traction control system after it came off the dyno, though I have invested in more new diagnostic tools since your visit.

We should have the box listed, with an install guide and everything else for retail sale by the end of the week.

@D84rk_Knight - its really not a hard install, slightly more involved than the 1.5 in that you do need to use some tools, but it is still no more than a 10 minute job.

We have a few different systems, but our most recent addition is a top spec Autel unit. It isn't flawless, but it does have some pretty great features and covers a lot of vehicles.

I've barely driven the bloody thing since!

Although, when I have, I like it. Nice and smooth, can tell there's that extra bit of power and torque, no change in economy. Been putting 95RON in it so kept it on that setting which is 145BHP.

Worth the money I'd say.

I've not used the car much since having the box fitted, but I did my regular 180 mile trip south today and it does seem as if there's an improvement in economy

Route was the same as I've done many times, conditions were good but same as I've had before (maybe a bit warmer), I drove the same as before: stuck to speed limits on A roads and sat at 60mph on the motorway for 130 miles......



Best I've had before was 61.5mpg

When I came off the motorway at Droitwich after 26 miles of A roads at the start and the rest motorway I was at this.....
