Question: hi alan stewart again what induction kit would you recomend...on the sti8 ppp and what would the cost be for fitting it and a remap. also with the exhaust is it possible to replace just sections of the prodrive one (eg the cats) or do you have to have a complete system. to have this car remapped with the induction kit on it what bhp gains would be possible. thanks again stewart
Answer: Hi.. We like the RC kit for around 175. There are loads of alternatives, but if you don't intend to fit a front mount you can't beat the RC version. We can just fit a de cat to your original exhaust. The remap costs 600 inc vat, including all rolling road testing. We would expect around 30 to 40 bhp, depending on where it is to start with. We've never seen a PPP match the quoted figures!

Question: Hi Alan, I have P reg fiesta (96). Recently my revs have start to drop and then increase, mainly when the car is stationary, i.e at traffic light then it will suddenly cut out but will start again without any problems. It is also very jerky, feels like there\'s dirt somewhere. This then clears and you gain a boost of power. Any ideas? Thanks
Answer: Try cleaning out the throttle body with aerosol carb cleaner, sometimes that's all it takes!

Question: hi alan came to see you last year with a boost problem you said the solenoid had gone however all it needed was a clean with brake cleaner and all was fine. ive recently sold the car and now got a sti v8 with the prodrive pack wanting a bit more wondering what could be done perhaps a induction kit and remap.. didnt really want to spend out on having a full exhaust system done as well what could i expect from this.
Answer: Hi Stewart- Well, our assertion that it was faulty was correct! lol.. We can always get more out of the PPP cars, and will work with whatever you bring us. We can gain more with a de cat or sports cat of course, but we will do you a deal if you decide you want to do that bit later on. If you are planning on an induction kit it MUST be remapped to suit, as the effect of changing an air filter on a Scooby can be dramatic. We supply the RC kits, which are the best on the market.

Question: hi alan, i need a whole new exhaust system for my 99 saxo vts and would like to add some more power, what could i get for a 1000 and what improvements would i see. many thanks for your time.
Answer: Hi - 1000 will get you a stainless exhaust, we like Jetex or Mongoose systems, an induction kit and a Superchip, and some change! Personally, I wouldn't recommend anything else. You would pick up power all the way up, probably around 8 to 10 bhp

Question: hi alan i was wondering how much u wud be able 2 fit a turbo kit and set it all up on my swift gti mk2. i would supply a full turbo kit.and how much power do u think it would run if i kept it at around 5psi?
Answer: We've just done one of these. The kit wasn't too bad to fit, but he's since had gasket problems. We are now sorting the motor out. I'd say do the job right from the start with proper low comp pistons and have done with. 200 bhp from these isn't difficult if you set it up correctly. On the occasions we've seen kits for any car that are supposed to run with a standard motor, they always end up with trouble.
