Default Pete'd my Swift !!

Hi guys,
2 days back i received a package,


I received my Pete's Box finally !!! (My B'day gift ! )

It was packed very well, had to spend nearly 5 mins to open it up.
Once the packing was removed with great effort,


Without wasting much time, i was off to see whats inside,



Contents :-



Once the photo session was over, i rushed with my toolkit, to the parking.

Even though Pete's provides a very easy to understand instruction manual for installation, i called up peter to be on the safer side.
Since Peter wasnt there, Mathew guided me through the entire process.

First i removed the stock connector that went to the Fuel Line (thats what Mathew said)
Then switched in the box's connector to the Fuel Line, and the other side to the stock connector.
It was damn easy than i thought it would be.

Then it was time to find a good place for the box to be installed.I found the perfect place on the left hand side of the engine,just behind the windshield water tank pipe/cover or whatever its called.





The contents include a long cable tie,very handy to fix the box.Once i was assured that everything was in place, i started the car, it started, no issues.(Mathew told me, if i had screwed up with the connections, the car wont start and could also fry my ECU)

Finally my car was Pete'd after a looooong wait !



Later i went for a quick spin and although i could feel some difference, it didnt feel as i was expecting.

A frantic call goes to Evo6, he calmly tells me, let it run for 150 odd Kms. and in this running, the car should be switched off completely atleast 6-7 times.
This, according to him erases all the old maps on the ECU and writes the new ones.

Then i was off to Mumbai Meet, what perfect timing for the box to arrive !

While driving i could see that with every switching off of the engine, there was tiny improvement.

Till we reached mumbai, i didnt see substantial difference.After the meet when i started the car the next morning and drove, it was like wow !!!
( No relation as such,maybe 150 kms. and the necessary engine switch offs was completed i guess)

The drive back to Pune was pleasing, Karl was impressed with the way she was moving.
Money well spent in the end i must say.

Although i havent had the box for a long time.Whatever i have used it and experienced ,my observations can be summarised as follows,

1) Its become more torquey
2) This has helped me to drive in higher gears more,frequent gear shifts has reduced.
3) At speeds in excess of 140 Kmph, the car used to feel as if its at its limits. Now it feels more relaxed and gives a feeling as if there more in store.

Thats all for now,will keep you guys updated with new findings and observations if any.

Last but not the least, Thanks to Peter for such a sweet product. His support was very nice, thats the reason i didnt hesitate once to go for another Pete's product after the Green Filter.
Thanks to Evo6 for guiding and helping me through it.

And...

Thanks Team-Bhp, had it not been for Tbhp, i guess i would have never found out about Peter.

Thanks,
Amey

nice review. the part about the minor difference after just installing the box is true. i noticed that on my innova too. except that mine became proper after about half hour.

i like the new petes stickers. i think ill have to ask peter to send me one.

There is a disadvantage associated with all this though.
Since i own a diesel Octy, now i am tempted to get that Pete'd too.
You end up spending some serious money

I really found the car moving well on our drive back to Pune, the tyre set up no doubt helping immensely. Ive never enjoyed a diesel so much.

On another note, the Pete's sticker job is one of the coolest ones Ive seen in ages.

My birthday is coming up sooner! So me first!

I am seriously tempted. Havn't even put a CD player in the car yet, but still...

I do hope to change the car after another year, but I guess the Pete's box would either be a resale advantage, or could easily be sold on by itself.

Yes, please do post those updates.

I'm particularly interested to hear how you get on in city traffic; lower speeds, standing-start performance, bursts for overtaking...

I agree, that's a real nice sticker what with raised lettering & all! Looks cool! Why don't you stick one on your cream Amby to scare off the ricer boys??
