I found something. It is written that it is a tuning box increases the power of the engine. According to what is described quite a bit. I suspect that this is probably something like a resistor that changes the parameters of the intake air temperature. But maybe someone is interested :)

please don`t be so naive, with this super-tool you will just get an error in dash or even it won`t make any effect.similar superboxes areavailableto decrease fuel consumption.

gains are unrealstic on a normally aspirated engine, 20% gains achievable on small capacity turbo engines (which tend to aid consumption given increase in torque)

Obviously you'd have to declare it to your insurer otherwise your insurance becomes void and they will obviously increase the premium. Best just get the 75 PS version or wait for the GT!

Spoke at Length with superchips (well respected engine tuners/chippers) best they could manage as +BHP on the 75 BHP engine...said not worth it therefore no plans for a remap etc



to be honest, 75 BHP from a 3 cylinder 999cc engine is fair enough and the up certainly doesn't 'feel' slow
