Question: hi,99 uk turbo impreza wagon,just bought ninja downpipe,when i have the money i will be coming to you for ecutek 3 remap,i have decat mid section and scoobysport backbox already fitted,i would like you to fit the downpipe and do remap,would you recommend having an uprated fuel pump?what torque and bhp figures will i be fetching with all of this done and how much will you charge to fit downpipe? what gains if any would i be seeing from an uprated fuel pump?
Answer: Hi Rich- The fuel pump won't gain you any power, it will just be good insurance if you ever push it at the top end. We'd say an hour's work to fit the downpipe, so 50 plus vat. The pump costs 95 plus vat for a Walbro, and another hour's labour to fit it. We'd expect to see around 40 bhp/50 ft lb extra with that model. See you soon!

Question: Hi, Just wondered what your view was on leaving in or removing the power valve when fitting a 38 dgas to a 2.0 pinto, running piper 285 cam, lightly ported head & bestek ignition with vac retained. Thanks Tony.R
Answer: Hi Tony - I've experimented with that one in the past, and found that by the time you've corrected the mixture to compensate, you're back where you started! If you're using it on the road, I'd leave it in.

Question: Hi Alan, i got a problem with my car and was refured to you by another garage! the oil light on my car keeps coming on and off - i made sure it had oil in it and it still on, it does go off thou when my car gets above 2500 rpm but comes back on when it goes below 2500 rpm. and then every once and a while, itll go off for a few minuites and come back on when i push the accelerator. and the further down i push the accelerator, the brighter the oil light comes on. iv been told it could be somthing to do with oil pressure but to have it looked at before any conclusion is made as to what it is!!!! have you any idea what it could be and is this somthing you and your garage could have a look at and possibly sort out? i also have a slight oil leak... could this also play apart in it! also can you guys do MOT\'s thanks once again for you time and lol about the wife exchange on a few posts before this one lol
Answer: Hello Harry. The Oil pressure needs to be checked before doing anything else. If you'd like to book it in, we'll get a gauge on it and report. I haven't had any pictures of the chap's wife yet, but maybe he's still thinking about it!

Question: hello there Alan. i have a 3 series 1.9 ti bmw compact. was thinking of superchipping. could you give me a price and tell me if there would be much gain in doing this. engine is just standard so would i have to upgrade air filter, plugs, leads, fuel and water pumps., thanks
Answer: These gain more at the low end of the rev range rather than anywhere else. We've converted a few, and the general feedback is they drive smoother, with better throttle response. There isn't much else you can do with them, so you'll have to figure out if you'd like to spend the 299 on it! that does include a before and after rolling road session. You won't need to touch anything else, we have found BMW's tend to respond well to exhaust system changes.

Question: Evo X - Whats needed to bring this up to 360bhp or increase mid range torque...not sure if the SST gearbox could handle the power upgrade.....Approx cost....could be an issue with warranty.......thoughts please
Answer: We'll have to discuss this one with Ecutek. I'd say a power increase would be no problem for the transmission, as they will be well over engineered for that application. A remap shouldn't compromise the warranty, considering Mitsubishi sanction it themselves!
