Answer: Yes, we can map Gems, the cost is 250 plus vat, dyno graphs included. Best bet is to discuss it with Martyn before doing anything else. 01752 345880 office hours.

Question: Hi Alan I have a 98 STI, i shot a piston, got a re-con engine, but it never felt as smooth as before, i recently blew the head gasket.the engine is under waranty so i can get the work done, but what would u advise i do 2 make my car run smoothly? i kept gettin a fuel cut, which must have something 2 do with the fuel pressure regulator. i want 2 bring it 2 ur workshop but wana no wot u would do n how much it wud cost please. i fink rolling road wud be a must, at least, but i want it more responsive with costing me a bomb. cheers
Answer: Hi Jamie - If it's a version 4 we can't actually map it. If it's faulty we can fix it, it sounds like it may be overboosting. As soon as you get it back, book it in with us, and we'll check it out for you. We charge 70.50 inc vat for a dyno session which will tell us all we need to know.

Question: Is the price for the close deck engine built is 4150? If not then how much is it also the price for the 450bhp built.i have a standard turbo 280bhp max output which Im ok with for the moment but i wouldnt wana go over 500bhp in the future, so need an engine built to 550bhp max.
Answer: Closed deck blocks are costing 500 these days, plus vat. They also need the rear thrust machining to be done. I don't honestly think you need one with the turbo you are going to be using. 4150 covers a full drive in drive out 2.1 stroker engine build. Considering everything you've told me you don't need to spend that much on the car. you could just go for a 350bhp conversion, which still isn't exactly hanging about. Feel free to call me on 01752 345880 if you'd like to discuss it.

Question: Hi its sim again. Whts the bhp for the engine that will be made for 4150 is it 550bhp? Also will my normal clutch cope up wth the new engine cuz the only thing im doing atm is the engine nothing else.I wana keep everything the same the turbo n clutch or do i need to change the clutch? Also how long will it take to get it all done n ready?
Answer: Hi.. If you use a closed deck block, the engine would be capable of 550 bhp safely. If not, then I'd say 450 is a better target. The engine itself doesn't produce the power, it's the turbo and management system. If you fit a large turbo without sorting the engine out, it won't last five minutes, whcih is why I'd always suggest sorting the engine out first. when you get around to doing the rest of it, you'll have the power to match!

Question: hello mate, i\'ve recently bought a 2002 civic type r. i\'ll need to get a new exhaust soon as the one on there is looking a bit rusty. i was thinking of upgrading the performance of the car at the same time. I don\'t want anything too fast as i use the car every day, what upgrades would you recommend? I was thinking maybe a decent exhaust, induction kit and remap, what do you think? also what would the cost be roughly? thanks.
Answer: As far as I know, there isn't much remapping to do on a type R. We certainly don't do it. An exhaust system and filter won't hurt at all, adding around 10 bhp and an amazing sound track to go with it! Most people seeking big power from these go for Supercharging, which costs around 4k entry level. If you'd like to call us office hours, we'll quote you for any parts you'd like. 01752 345880.
