Question: Cheers for the quick reply yeah i hear they are hard to map, its got OFAB which i think is the easier of the 2 to map, just re-programing the module would be an idea if you could update it to a chip that is for T3 701\'s stage 2 etc, the chip is blue and made by superchips says on it power module can\'t make out anything else. can you also check to if it runs at Stoich when cruising, also was thinking of a cam for the car maybe newman or kent could you point me in the right direction i want one with not too bad idle and power increase around the mid with no loss at lower etc. does 24-28mpg seen rubbish for this type of car i drive quite slowly and uasually do about 65 on motorway Cheers SEB,
Answer: I could re set the chip for the 701's if everything goes to plan. I have the programmer, but they have been known to be unreliable. Superchips no longer supply them. There are things we can do if the mixture is off. My advice would be to leave the car with its original cam. I can't think of a worse engine to change the cam profile on!

Question: Hiya i have a stage 2 Fiesta RS turbo, but the chip has been on it since 1997 and i think is only for a T2 since the cars now got a T3 and on beiges, the cars not the best for MPG and i only get around 24 to 28mpg out of it, i was planning on bringing the car down for a setup on the rollers in the next few months, can you remap the chip on the rolling road or if not do you know who could and what the rough price is for this cheers SEB
Answer: Hi Seb- We can't remap those cars as such, as it isn't possible to access the ECU in that way. It may be possible to reprogram the module, depending on what type you have. We could at least check it out on the dyno and move on from there.

Question: hi alan can u a twin turbo conversion on a impreza wrx 1996 and if so how much!!! also how much bhp would this alone make the car
Answer: Hi Dane - under no circumstances! The Impreza single turbo set up is just fine, and can deliver any amount of power with the right modifications. The twin turbo Legacy set up is a nightmare best avoided. If you'd like to know the best way forward please call our Martyn on 01752 345880 and he'll take you through it.
