Question: hi thanks for the reply about the capri pistons ,was the price per piston or for the 6 also if i had them machined flat how long would you need them for and how much would be taken off , and do you sell the breather diverter valve and how much would that cost? thanks for the help
Answer: That's for the set of six! I believe the valves are available from TT, but the cost was up around 35 the last time I asked..

Question: hello there. I pick up my 56 reg mazda 6 MPS next week. from the research i have done i have selected and purchased a series of bolt on modifications for it already : an intake, FMIC, 3\" turbo back exhaust, and uprated fuel high pressure fuel pump. the most awkward part is the remap, not many guys in the uk seem to tune these engines at the moment. I know sanspeed are now tuning these with ecutek software, so i was wandering if you would be able to do the same. Id rather have it done local to me as a pose to a drive upto kent. if this is possible please could you let me know, how much, and how long you would require the car for etc. thanks Simon
Answer: Hi Simon - We haven't got into these yet either! the issue is the cost of set up with the software, it just isn't viable for us at the moment.

Question: Hi As a rough guide, how much would it cost for some forged pistons to be made up? They are for a Smart Roadster 698cc 3 cylinder engine. Also can you produce forged conrods as well or if not, do you know the best place to get them from? Thanks Jake
Answer: Hi Jake - We can have any piston made to pattern, usually within four weeks or so, cost 120 per piston as a one off. I've no idea where you would get rods for a Smart!

Question: Hi Alan how much to fit a set of coilovers for a 99 uk classic cheers gary
Answer: Hi Gary I'd like 146.88 inc vat, assuming they are new ones. They have to be set up for ride height. If they are used, it can be a bit of a sod due to corrosion.

Question: on the 230bhp turbo technics capri the piston crowns were machined would you know what was done and how much it would cost to have this done
Answer: Hi.. The pistons were either dished or just machined across flat. we've seen both. If you have the pistons in your hand, I'd allow 60 plus vat for straight machining and 105.75 for dished. (Time taken!)
