is proud to be a distributor of MADS Electronics
products -- and in particular the Smarty power
modules. Each performance enhancer in the Smarty
line gives you the ability to choose several levels
of increased power or reduced fuel consumption,
according to your current driving needs.
* SW# 0: Half power
* SW# 1: 30 Hp increase, with added timing
* SW# 2: 60 Hp increase, no added timing
* SW# 3: 60 Hp increase, with added timing
* SW# 4: 90 Hp increase, no added timing
* SW# 5: 90 Hp increase, with added timing
* SW# 6: 130 Hp increase, no added timing
* SW# 7: 130 Hp increase, with added timing
* SW# 8: 170 Hp increase, no added timing***

*** °°° Do not use for prolonged high speed runs!
Speeds exceeding approx 105 mph can result in high
exhaust gas temperatures and damage the Diesel
Particulate Filter (DPF) !!! . Tested on stock
trucks on a Mustang Dyno. Stock means just that.
Stock. Even the air filters were stock. The 03
produced 130 HP more @ 30 PSI of boost while the
04.5 produced 170 HP more @ 40 PSI.
We checked the "baseline" (the stock truck HP at the
rear wheels) twice in a day in order to be sure
about our findings.
The above declared HP numbers are
all rounded down to the closest number. For example
the 90 HP file actually did 96 HP. That's a 90 Hp
software to us, not 100. The 170 HP was 174. The
power gains with the 03's-04's would be actually
higher if we started from a 235 HP engine.

ABS / Speedo Recalibration
The tire height can be adjusted up to 44" in increments
of 10 tenth of an inch in just a couple seconds. Of
course, Smarty needs to be VIN# locked to the truck in
order to get into the ABS adjustment section.
DTC Code Reader
The name says it all. You can read and erase codes.
Codes are displayed also in plain English. That's old
news by now. The VP Smarty was the first one to provide
that utility, others found the idea to be a good one
too. Smarty does erase ABS codes too but does not
ECM Update Speed
Faster than anything else on the market. Again, we've
done our homework on the protocol. Depending upon the
year of the truck, it takes from about three minutes to
about five and a half. Three times faster than
If you have followed the Smarty for the VP trucks, then
you've noticed that MADS has released several updates
for it in a relatively short time. Well, you can expect
the same to happen for the CR. The CaTCHER software
modules as they are today are only a starting point.

MADS Electronics - Smarty Catcher FAQs
The MADS Electronics tuning software
is well known as CaTCHER software. MADS Electronics
original products were EPROMs and Flash-EPROMs (or
“chips”) which could be installed in place of the
original OEM EPROMs and Flash-EPROMs located in the
vehicle’s on-board control module. These chips, just
like the tuners of today, keep the entire vehicle safety
and emissions systems intact, but modify the fuel
injection settings to deliver dramatic power, torque and
Also the fuel consumption is one of
the most important point of MADS Electronics research.
CaTCHER software can be used to reduce fuel consumption
up to 15% depending on the driving condition.
With the advent of OBD-II vehicle
control module in the early 1990s, most domestic vehicle
manufacturers installed under-dash ports (“ALDL ports”)
which allowed dealers and service techs to “re-flash”
the vehicle's control module to change engine settings
without replacing any chip.
So today, instead of chips, MADS
Electronics products are hand-held tuners that achieve
the same dramatic drivetrain improvements, without the
hassle of popping the hood, pulling out the vehicle
control module and replacing a chip. Installation is
quick and easy, taking just 2 minutes and requiring no
tools or mechanical skills whatsoever.
Q. What does "CaTCHER "
A. CaTCHER stands
for Clutch and Traction Challenger.
Q. What is so special
about the CaTCHER?
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 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 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 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?
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
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 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 Smarty ECM or VIN
A. YES! Smarty only
works with one truck AND one ECM at one time.
Q. What if a dealer
flashes the ECM and 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 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 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 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 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, then unplugged.
Q. If the 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
If you take your truck
back to stock software then the answer is no. Smarty
detectable by the dealer!
Q. Does the 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 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 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.
