Question: BMW E30 316. Just wondering if there was anything i could do to increase performance and if so, how much? Currently have a pipercross induction kit and stainless steel backbox.
Answer: Try Superchipping it! we've had very positive feedback with these. Apart from that, I wouldn't recommend anything else. there are so many options to buy a more powerful E30!

Question: Hi there Alan, still been think about that last letter you sent me. Really do think you are right if I?m spending this sort of money it should be on some thing more worthwhile. But I still would like a bit of tuning up though i.e. gas flow head, port it, cams, pistons what ever not really to fusty. I know you said that the problem is that they don?t really do bits for the 100 NX. Anyway your be happy to know that I?m going to be looking for a R33 Skyline in the near future :-) but only the GTS-T :-( Would you say that?s a little more worthwhile to tune up? Yes, I know you would like me to give you a Subaru Impreza P1 to tune up? but I don?t have that sort of money sorry. Thanks Alan hope to see you soon.
Answer: Hi Tim- A Skyline would be just fine, although of course you can sort out an Impreza other than a P1! the version 5 onwards is best, early T and V reg with the cassette type MAF sensor, then we could really get at it. you could try Janspeed ref. the Nissan 100 as they were the only ones around who did much with the smaller engined versions.

Question: I have a Honda Accord 2.2i VTEC SOHC 1998 and was wondering if you can adjust the set up so the VTEC kicks in around 3000 rpm as opposed to around 4200 - 4500? How much to put my car on the rolling road to see how much BHP / Torque it has?
Answer: Hi.. 3000 rpm is a no go, it just isn't possible! A vtec controller will drop about 500 rpm. A full rolling road session is ?60 plus vat, which includes diagnostics and a print out of bhp torque and AFR.
