QUESTION: How do CAT Systems work? ANSWER: There is a fuel temp harness that you plug in between your fuel temp sensor and your wiring. That will advance the timing on your engine. The scond harness plugs into your boost pressure sensor and alters the fuel rate to the motor. You can have that fixed or adjustable.
QUESTION: Will these harnesses effect the longevity or reliability of my engine? ANSWER: No. We have never experienced an ill effect by running these harnesses on any motor. The factory has maximum parameters already programmed into your ECM on your engine. All we do is go to those max parameters. We cannot make it go past those. Your engine is still within the maximum allowable specs of your engine set by your factory.
QUESTION: How do Cummins Systems work? ANSWER: One Harness will plug in between your factory fuel pressure sensor and your factory wiring. By plugging into the fuel pressure sensor we're able to alter the sensor to the ECM, increasing the rail pressure from 20,000 psi to apx 22,000 psi, giving it a 10% increase in pressure. The second function is where the biggest part of the gain comes from. We adjust the engines injection pulse width, changing timing essentially. This increases horsepower, torque and fuel efficiency without causing any damage toyour motor.
QUESTION: Will this effect my engine warranty? ANSWER: No. We are an ADD-ON after market product. To date after 15 years of service, we have not had a single warranty issue. If you do not want/like the product, just remove it and it leaves no trace or footprint on the engine or in the ECM.
