200MC, I am glad you shared that! Foose's product seemed to focus more on the catalyst while CalCat talked about heating the fuel so the catalyst could work--I did not realize the Phoenix heated the fuel until someone pointed it out.

The CalCat does not have any "test data," just six testimonials and then states:

I get a red broken line. What were they using that they did not?

Hey, this is interesting:

What is the Cal-Cat?

Cal-Cat is short for Calorie-Catalyst. It is a coolant to fuel heat exchanger that uses wasted or unused heat from the engines coolant to heat the fuel and the Catalyst inside the catalyst chamber. By heating the fuel we are able to speed up its ability to vaporize inside the engines intake manifold and inside the cylinder.

How Does the Cal-Cat Work?

By heating the catalyst inside the Cal-Cat, The catalyst reacts with the fuel molecules and helps them to break down large Hydrogen/Carbon chains to make them so that they too will be able to be used earlier in the combustion process. Normally these Hydrogen /Carbon chains do not vaporize until very late in the combustion process if they vaporize at all while in the combustion chamber.

A Phoenix Fuel Converter is a coolant to catalyst heat exchanger that uses wasted or unused heat from the engines coolant to heat the Catalyst inside the catalyst chamber. By creating a catalytic reaction with the fuel we are able to speed up its ability to vaporize inside the engines intake manifold and inside the cylinder. The catalyst reacts with the fuel molecules and helps them to break down large Hydrogen/Carbon chains, so that they will be able to be used earlier in the combustion process. Normally the larger Hydrogen /Carbon chains do not vaporize under normal OEM standards until very late in the combustion process if they vaporize at all while in the combustion chamber.
The Phoenix Fuel Converter does not make fuel. It allows more of the fuel going into the engine to vaporize earlier, which in turn enables more of the fuel to produce power not wasted as heat in the exhaust or as pollutants in the air.
Extremely similar!
