Way to much money for a fuel rail pressure box. Might give you .5 mpg better, but that's it. Added pressure will be harder on the injectors and pump. Not the best way to do things, I've been through this on my Dodge diesels.

Thanks for doing that research! Certainly not something to buy if one is soley interested in economy. It would be cool to check one out though. Where was the technical information? I couldnt find it in the post. Once again the Europeans seem to be ahead of us on the small diesel stuff. There will likely be more products in the future.

LOL not really. £1 GBP is about $2.05 USD at the moment. So that is about $2,700 USD for the kit if one was to order it from the UK.

Nothing like this in the US, yet. There is likely demand, but the CRD is no SRT, so I don't know what the response is going to be like from the tuner world. I'm sure something is in the works.

What's the turner world? To be honest don’t feel a lot in it between the CRD with this kit and the 5.7 (not the 6.1) and I know I would have the CRD going by UK fuel prices. I am sure someone will look up figures now but it’s just my opinion.

The "tuner world" is the world of car tuners, specialists who tune up and pimp out cars, like Brabus, Hennessy, Alpina, Neuspeed, the M boys over at BMW, and the like.

Iím willing to bet there will be some thing here to come out, probably from Edge. Edge were the only ones to make a box for the Liberty CRD. They may make some thing along those lines. Iím sure there will be a demand for this, but not $2,000+. For some thing that costs that much, it better say BANKS on it. Iím not saying STARTECH isnít good, I know they are very good. Look at what they did to the 4.7L V8 in the WGs. WOW
