Question: i have a MK1 Ford mondeo TD and was wondering if i got a boost controller if you would be able to fit it (or fit a bleed valve), adjust the on boost fueling (mechanicly done rather than ecu or chip) and possibly fit a boost gauge for me? and i was also wondering if you could give me an approximate time requirement/price
Answer: Hi John- These aren't so much about boost as fuelling! We have no experience of tuning these, and I wouldn't want you to go astray. We can do the electronic versions! Try Van Aaken Developments, who offer performance conversions for mechanical diesels.

Question: Hi Alan, I am in the middle of rebuilding my Toyota 7MGTE engine. Whilst I am at it I am upgrading to a 255L Walbro fuel pump a Lexus V8 AFM, 550cc Injectors and AFPR. I also will install a apexi safcII. I am going to need the correct settings and fuelling set up to run correctly. Are you able to set this up? What time frame on the dyno are we talking about and at what sort of cost? Regards Angelo Di-Tommaso
Answer: Hi Angelo- I'm concerned that you won't get enough control over the management from the Apexi safc. A MAF sensor and injector swop is a major change, and I'd say a Greddy E Manage ultimate would be more like it. Try calling Martyn on 01752 345880 office hours this week to discuss?

Question: hi Alan. I have a celica gt4 st185 which has some mods. it has ; uprated turbo manifold, de-cat downpipe, mongoose exhaust system, fuel cut defender, electronic boost controller, re-con turbo with uprated actuator. The car runs o.k when the boost controller is turned off but fuel cuts(i think) when boost controller is on. The car needs setting up properly. Would you be able to do this ? do you think that it needs chip etc. Also, the clutch needs replacing soon and was wondering if you would be able to do this also. Please let me know. thanks Jon.
Answer: Hi Jon. You need a fuel cut defencer or similar. We have these in stock. The clutch is not nice to do on those, but we can do the job! Your best bet is to call us on 01752 345880 office hours so we can discuss it all.

Question: Hi Alan i have a 2004 Honda civic type R Ep3. Recently just had an exhaust system fitted by yourselfs. I was wondering if i can have the vtec cut in at a lower rev range? Would a chip do this or a remap or what? Hope u can help. Many thanks Chris
Answer: Hi Chris - try chatting to Martyn and we'll see what we can come up with. There are various VTEC controllers about, maybe we need to investigate what's best.

Question: Hi Alan I have a Impreza Turbo 2000, its been running great (recently remapped by you) While on a easy drive up the A38 last night I had the check engine light flick on just for a second or two (I was not driving hard and I was off boost) The check engine light only flickered on and has stayed off, but when doing a diagnostic check it shows fault code 23 & 32. The car seems to be a little more thirsty then usual with more pops and bangs from the exhaust. Would the oxygen sensor fault cause the maf fault? When are you next open as I suspect you might need to have a look. Andy
Answer: Hi Andy - We'd be happy to check that out for you. If in any doubt, always take a look! just drop it in anytime that suits you, we are open from the 27th.
