Question: Hi Alan, I\'m currently running a factory tuned 04 WRX but with prodrive exhaust, green air filter and tarox big brakes on the front. It\'s a daily driver but I\'ve got a track day coming up and was wondering what I need to about a sump baffle if anything? I\'ve already done track day with no issue but with new brakes and potentially fitting track tyre too, do I need a full baffled sump or is a sump plate sufficient? Thanks
Answer: Hi Ade - We find the baffle plates do a good job in that sort of environment, we tend to go for fully baffled sumps when contemplating racing or rally use. You will need to raise the engine up off the mounts to get the sump off!

Question: Hi Alan, I have an \'08 hatchback STI which has been rebuilt by you (fully forged) for a previous owner. And I have to say great work on the car! It\'s currently running about 370bhp but I\'m looking to break the 400bhp mark as far as I can on the standard ECU. Could you just let me know the parts I\'d need and the cost involved for me to achieve this so I can have something to aim for Thanks James
Answer: Hi James - I'm guessing the turbo is the next thing to change, possibly injectors. I think we need to have a chat about this one, could you call me on 01752 345880 office hours to discuss?

Question: Hey Alan, im looking to get some more power out of my petrol BMW 330i. Because the car is naturally aspirated would i get much increase from a remap? What would you reccomend for additional HP at at reasonable price?
Answer: Hi William - A remap frees up a little power based on running 99 octane fuel and getting a little more ignition into it. The result will be a smoother drive from low speeds and better torque on part load. The cost is from 250 depending on year. I'd say it's worth doing if you are keeping the car and wish to optimise!
