Brings back memories of my re-mapped Octavia What Peter is offering in terms of Pete's Boxes or re-maps is mindboggling - a product that actually works. One has to drive a Pete's Boxed or re-mapped car to actually believe these reports

Cheers

Wowo man liked your comments, BTW nice writeup.
Sorry for offtopic but it sounds like US spec RD which sucks below 6K RPM then after that the power band comes in picture to pull you like twister.

Anyplace in Delhi where this pete's box can be purchased. Also can this be fixed to an Indigo Marina Dicor with VGT (atleast thats what they say it has).

Not yet, you will have to wait 5 days for that.

And the first thing you notice is that the cars brakes are a wee bit loose since the car has much more torque so it goes forward with a lunge you feel you need to apply more brakes.

Congrats BUSA, You are officially PETE'D now. I am getting little jealous since you have got a PETE'D Swift and mine is without it. Seems time has come to save little money for the small wonder.

Hey, what are the different stages mentioned by you? Can you please give us more information about the different stages?

oops sorry busa i didnt check this thread before writing in mine about this. well great review. but i am seriously wondering what will happen to engine warranty and stuff if such mods are installed, arguably there is no problem with power, torque and all, but well the former part bothers me.

It seems that he just removes the box before service --- and it leaves no trace!

It'd be interesting to read the 'reverse impressions', ie after having got used to it, remove it and see how the car feels.

I'm interested to know how it affects city driving, particularly congested, stop-start, slow, city driving?

Sitting shotgun in one is more than enough.

Missed this one, Busa - I guess this is the closest one gets to Plug-in Nirvana!

Enjoy!

Wish Busa was here in Bangy so that I could have sat shotgun, as Binz said. Any pete'd Swifts in Bangy?
