Question: hi al again i am just wondering what is rolling road tuning i dont understand it and can you install NOS aswell??
Answer: Rolling Road tuning is using a piece of test equipment to simulate road conditions, and test power output. The object is to tune all the various settings, ignition timing, fuelling, boost etc. to arrive at the best possible situation. The rolling road consists of one or more pairs of rollers. the car is driven on it, at any speed or load, and the operator uses his experience to determine the best course of action, based on the figures obtained. The machine I own cost me 70,000! It's my view that you can't tune a car properly without one. Yes, we can install NOS, although it's only for drag racing, and a bit silly for road use.

Question: hi al i was wondering how much it would cost for my subaru impreza turbo 2000 4wd to be tuned the same as your road legal scoobie?
Answer: You can spend as little or as much as you like really! Prices start at 650 inc vat and rolling road for an Ecutek remap and move on from there. The WRX we feature has been gradually brought forward, using a combination of hardware and softwear changes. Call Martyn on 01752 345880 office hours to discuss!

Question: HOW CAN I MAKE MY ASTRA 1.4I GET FASTER AXCLATETION??
Answer: If it's the earlier type with a distributor, there is always leeway on the ignition timing, especially if you run super unleaded. Have it rolling road tuned, then remove everything from the car that has no purpose, spare wheel, spare seats, carpets, stereo, tools, sundry crap, and girlfriend if she's too heavy or doesn't put out. A light car is faster!

Question: hi alan, im looking to start a new project which would involve a saxo VTR and a nice pair of turbo\'s. cash isnt a major problem but getting started is, i have a few contacts who can do most of the work, but any suggestions on where to begin? if you could email me with some info it would be greatly appreciated. cheers al.
Answer: Hi.. We can supply and fit a turbo kit for you, but we wouldn't use two turbos! The engine is too small for such a move, and the extra complication would cause you problems big style.

Question: I have a 1998 Laguna V6, i\'ve currently got a powerflow back-box and K&N induction kit. I\'m looking for more power, what other products are available? I can\'t seem to find cam kits or anything on the net about these engines.
Answer: Hi.. I hardly ever recommend cam profile changes on road cars.All it does is mess up the idle, and give you a tad extra revs. You could Superchip the car, and I'd leave it at that.
