MORE POWER - LESS FUEL WITH THE PETROL POWER BOX
How does it work?
Unmatched Quality! Each PP PowerBox is assembled by hand. The all important programming is then performed so that the module and software is setup to our specific standards for the South African environment and fuel quality.
It's a simple fact.
Every factory standard engine is running below peak tune and efficiency. All engines are ‘detuned’ by the manufacturers. In mass production it simply isn't economical to tune each engine to its best. Every EFI petrol vehicle can benefit from a PP PowerBox. The PowerBox can increase performance in any EFI petrol engine by up to 15%.
One particular advantage the PowerBox has is that it is installed 'down stream' of the ECU. This means that the electronic changes that it is making are downstream of the vehicles factory ECU, between the ECU and the injection pump in most instances. This helps prevent conflicts with the factory ECU signals. Generally a PowerBox can be installed in around 30-60 minutes with the simplest being a matter of a few minutes. All are designed to be easily installed by auto electricians or professionally installed at one of our distributors. If you wish to remove the PowerBox, for either transferring onto another vehicle or for any other reason, it is just as easy.
An increase in both torque and power will reflect on a dyno run which can be performed a short while after fitting the PowerBox. The PowerBox's INTELLIGENT LOGIC system requires the vehicle to do a few hundred kilometers, where by in this time the performance will become more noticeable and eventually reach its peak. The fuel economy will show with immediate effect. If you're towing a caravan or trailer or have some other heavy load you'll notice advantage the extra power provides. Overall drivability improves and with less need for gear changing your driving will be smoother and more efficient. In tests and trials we have performed, as well as reports from satisfied customers, benefits of approximately 10% better fuel economy have been achieved. This obviously varies from vehicle to vehicle and application. If you drive normally and you take full advantage of the power increase you'll realise the cost savings available through improved economy and performance.
Petrol Power will officially launch on the 1st of July 2009.
Our products are developed and tested in Europe by engineers, who have been working on the optimization of petrol vehicles for a number of years.
Is it safe?
It is absolutely impossible to damage your vehicles electronics or ECU before, during or after installation because the PowerBox is 'downstream' of the ECU and remains in a 'slave' position. Your existing engine computer remains in 'master' control of all engine operational safety features at all times. The PowerBox cannot make any changes until the ECU has told it everything is safe and 'good to go'.
There is no way to short out or damage your ECU or electrical system during installation of a wire-in PowerBox. The PowerBox has been designed with engine safety as the primary concern at all times. It is simply impossible to damage something even if you connect up the wrong wires during a wire-in PowerBox installation. All that would happen in that case is the PowerBox will not function. Every PowerBox comes with detailed illustrated fitting instructions which makes it easily installed by any auto electrician or one of our authorized Petrol Power agents.
