Catcher Power Module FAQs
Q. What does "CaTCHER " stand for in MADS Electronics products?
A. CaTCHER stands
for Clutch and Traction Challenger.
Q. What is so special about the CaTCHER when it comes to MADS Electronics products?
A. The CaTCHER software
is a unique animal. It improves throttle response of
the engine greatly. It spools up the turbo sooner.
(On average 200 RPM sooner.) It deals with the injection
timing. It alters the torque management. Just to mention
a few benefits. Customers report that the engine now
"hangs" on the throttle.
Q. What has MADS Electronics Smarty to do with the CaTCHER software?
A. Smarty is the tool
you need to update your ECM with any level of the
CaTCHER software. There are ten different software packs
in Smarty you can choose from.
Q. What's the difference in the MADS Electronics CaTCHER software?
A. Mainly the throttle
response, or maybe better the aggressiveness of the
engine response. Since the full blown CaTCHER develops
torque instantly, it can become a pain to drive it on
slippery roads. Thus the need to reduce the response
some. Further more, there are CaTCHER versions with and
without added timing stored in the Smarty. The software
without added timing are useful if you want to use a
timing box stacked with the CaTCHER.
Q. Does MADS Electronics Smarty have only CaTCHER software on board?
A. No, Smarty offers
SW# 0 that provides about HALF the power of a stock
software. Emissions. Ehm. SW# 1 is a Fuel Saver
software. SW# 2 deals only with fuel and boost. SW
# 3 is fuel, boost, and timing. The remaining levels
can be considered CaTCHERs.
Q. Does Smarty do the boost fooling function in MADS Electronics products?
A. Yes, all the the
software modules in Smarty have modified boost tables in
them in order to allow for higher boost without
defuelling. (Except SW#0 and of course stock)
Q. Could you take MADS Electronics Smarty and install it on several different trucks, one at a time?
A. Yes! No problem, when
you go back to stock Smarty unlocks from the VIN# and
ECM. Now you're ready to go into another truck. As many
times as you want.
Q. Can MADS Electronics Smarty go from one program to another, or do you have to go back to stock, then to a program?
A. You can go from any
software # to any other software #. There is no need to
go back to stock.
Q. Is MADS Electronics Smarty ECM or VIN sensitive?
A. YES! Smarty only
works with one truck AND one ECM at one time.
Q. What if a dealer flashes the ECM and Mads Electronics Smarty was not returned to stock? Is my Smarty now useless?
A. We've been asked that
question many times. Upon request, there is a "safety
feature" in Smarty. Should a reflash happen without
having Smarty returned to stock first, you need to
contact us and tell us the serial # of your Smarty and
the VIN# of your truck.
With that information we
can provide you with a password that will allow Smarty
to update your ECM. That password will work ONLY ONE
TIME. That means that you can unlock Smarty from the ECM
only one time.
Q. Which version of "stock" will the MADS Electronics Smarty come with.
Smarty does NOT download
the complete original software from the ECM and does not
store it into it's memory. That is for a simple reason.
The protocol in the ECM does not allow to read the flash
memory. How can Smarty then return to stock? Simple. It
has all the latest stock software already on board. When
you choose to return the truck back to stock, Smarty
takes the stock software from it's memory and updates
the ECM with that software.
Q. Is MADS Electronics Smarty's DTC reader also VIN# locked?
A. No, the DTC reader
works always in any truck. Even when Smarty is VIN#
locked to your truck, you can still diagnose your
buddy's truck. MADS did not want you to have the hassle
back to stock only because you need to help someone.
Q. How long does it take to update the ECM with MADS Electronics Smarty?
We've done some serious research in order to minimize
the time needed for an update. We've developed special
boot loaders which cut the required time for an update
dramatically. A typical update is done in about two
minutes with Smarty S-03A and three and a half minutes
with Smarty S-06A. Once you get used to Smarty it takes
a few minutes from the moment you plug in
Smarty to finish. With the fastest competition it takes
more than twice that time.
Q. Does the MADS Electronics Smarty Mount in the truck... or program and then unplug?
Smarty needs to be
plugged into the OBD port of your truck, program the ECM,
Q. If the MADS Electronics Smarty update is interrupted, how can I recover the ECM?
First of all don't
panic! An interrupted update is a piece of cake for
Smarty. Smarty will recover your truck automatically
back to the STOCK software. Unlike the competition, you
don't have to remove fuses or battery cables. Smarty
will handle the situation on it's own. You just need to
turn the key on, plug in Smarty and follow the on-screen
instructions. A special boot loader does that job.
Q. Can a dealer detect MADS Electronics Smarty?
If you take your truck
back to stock software then the answer is no. Smarty
detectable by the dealer!
Q. Does the MADS Electronics CaTCHER raise the rev limiter?
The CaTCHER versions
alter the high RPM settings in the ECM for fuel, timing,
boost, torque limiter whatever... in order to allow the
engine to rev. Depending upon the mods done to the
engine that shows up on a dyno graph or does not.
Q. How much horsepower will the MADS Electronics CaTCHER add to my 98.5-02 engine?
A. The CaTCHER is VERY
noticeable from idle up. As soon as you touch the
throttle, you will KNOW that the CaTCHER is in there.
First of all, the power added by the CaTCHER depends
upon the mods done to the engine. On a stock engine,
typically we see an HP increase at the rear wheels of
about 60 HP.
With taller injectors,
the HP gain increases. How much? That depends upon the
injectors, turbo, intake, and exhaust. The best mod
combined with a CaTCHER is without doubt a good set of
Fuel pump wire tapping
boxes without added timing come next if you're after
serious HP. In that kind of scenario, the CaTCHER
becomes very noticeable in the top HP range. Some
customers have gained over 75 HP with that kind of stack
above all other stacks they had tried before.
Is there a warranty on this MADS Electronics product?
Of course! Anyway, let me mention the
fact that out of the over 2000 Smarty's sold thus far,
we have had only five defective units. MADS uses the
strictest quality control possible. Every single unit is
tested individually four different times during the
assembly before it leaves our facility. Everything is
traceable for every single unit. MADS knows exactly
where the parts for it came from, who assembled it, who
tested it. MADS wants the Smarty products to be as
trouble free as possible.
What is the Warranty Period for these MADS Electronics products?
One year warranty for
MADS Electronics Smarty boxes.
