Question: hi, ive recently bought a 95 impreza wrx with a front mount,exhaust and induction. had it three days before what sounds like the bottom end bearings are starting to clang/knock.. how much would you charge for a strip/rebuild of the bottom end?? also the car is still restricted to 112mph.. how much would you charge for the derestriction and that with a map what sort of gains would i be expecting? thanks.
Answer: Hi Keiran - The Impreza boxer engine has to have a complete strip, so it isn't as simple to rebuild the bottom end as in some other engines. I'd say it starts at 2k for a proper repair. The stock ECU can't be mapped with a 1995 car, which might have led to your problem. We'd have to investigate the details once the motor's fixed, and go from there.

Question: Hello,I have recently bought a 2002 impreza wrx with a de-cat up pipe,de-cat down pipe straight through centre pipe and a back box that is too noisy for my liking and I presume won\'t pass an mot.It has also been re-mapped by yourselves a year or two ago. I have the original up pipe,down pipe and cat.Will it pass an mot without the original up pipe but with the original down pipe and cat or would I have to change it all. Also would it lose much power by doing this as I\'d like it to be quieter and am thinking about going back to a complete original exhaust. Thanks Adrian.
Answer: Hi Adrian - Give me a call at the office, as we might have a system here to suit you. It has to have a cat for MOT and we can help with that as well. 01752 345880 business hours and Saturday mornings.

Question: Hi Alan, I currently have a V7 STi on 104K miles running at 440 bhp on the Clinics rolling road. I am running a APS 3.5\" exhaust, GEMS ECU, FP Green turbo, Yellow injectors, APS parallel fuel system, uprated fuel pump and Aeromotive FPR. I am thinking of a 2.1 forged rebuild. How much would I be looking at for this rebuild. I am thinking about capping the bhp to around 500 bhp with spare capabilities from the engine. Thanks Steve
Answer: Hi Steve. A semi closed deck block like yours is safe well over 500 bhp, so you wouldn't have any problems on that score. We can offer a number of options, from a built short block at 2600 up to a fully specced drive in drive out at 4600 both including vat. The 2.1 has proven to be a great choice, giving more power and torque all round. Feel free to call us on 01752 345880 for more details.

Question: hi alan, i have a 1.8t ibiza cupra running about 220bhp with a front mount,remap and dump valve and turbo back exhaust i want to increase the bhp to about 300-350bhp what would you be able to do for bhp increase and what bhp can i run on standard internals?
Answer: Hi James - We don't take these past basic chipping, the reason being we can't access the ECU's for mapping. There are one or two specialists around the country.

Question: Hi there, ive got a wrx on a 55 plate with the PPP fitted producing 265, since then ive fitted a centre de-cat pipe and performance filter and now was wondering what turbo, injectors etc i need to reach the 300+ mark and also a rough price. i look forward to hearing from you. many thanks.
Answer: Hi Dan - We'd say the SC36 billet is the best choice for an all round improvement. We supply this one at 930 inc vat. STi pink injectors are usually available good used, they'll do the job nicely. Mapping 350
