Need more oomph in your ve­hi­cle? Cost of fuel driv­ing you crazy? Be­fore you throw in the towel and in­vest in a bi­cy­cle, con­sider the Powercontrol and Boostrpro, which is claimed to in­crease power and torque by up to 30 per cent and im­prove fuel con­sump­tion by up to 20 per cent.

They come in handy DIY kits com­plete with in­struc­tions (for the less en­thu­si­as­tic, a na­tional dealer net­work can help in­stall the sys­tem). An add-on, the Pedalbox, is said to im­prove throt­tle re­sponse.

The sys­tems are com­pat­i­ble with turbo diesel, turbo petrol and nor­mally as­pi­rated en­gines. Trucks and trac­tors are cov­ered, too. Im­ported from Ger­many, the com­po­nents are of the high­est-qual­ity ma­te­ri­als and carry a life­time war­ranty.

Price: from R1 995 to R6 995 for the Boostrpro and Powercontrol and R2 975 for the Pedalbox.
