Question: Hi Alan I may have a chance to buy a simtek ecu off a mate of mine whos scooby has died. I know the simtek is ok as i was the person who had it fitted by martyn in the first place. Question is how much is it worth? what would be a reasonable price to pay for it?
Answer: Good question! we've only sold new ones. They come in at 995 inc vat, fitted and mapped. I dare say it would be worth 400, bearing in mind it needs to be mapped again. Make sure it's the right version for the car you're going to put it on.

Question: Alan, I\'m looking to change my exhaust (already got) but can\'t afford a remap for a full decat, in your opinion would it be ok to replace the centre and backbox on an sti6, or just the backbox? (downpipe will be decatted when funds for remap are available and I\'ll be giving you a call!)
Answer: Hi Paul - I can't see any reason why not! It should be fine. We supply Milltek, and have an offer on at the moment of 375 inc vat and delivery for a cat back system.

Answer: Hi Jamie - You need someone to check that out for you. From the sound of it, it shouldn't be hard to find! Of course, we'd be happy to take it on if you need us to deal with it.

Question: Hi, spoke to you ages ago about my Boss 429 Mustang. Work is progressing but have struck a snag. The left bank cylinder head is corroded and leaking through to the plug recess. I have been told this can be welded. Do you carry out repairs like this or know of anyone locally who can? I live in Okehampton Cheers Spence
Answer: Hi Spence - One of my staff can weld alloy to a high standard. We'd like to see it first of course, on the basis that if the result of leaving it as it is would be a written off head, it's worth trying to repair it. We're open on Saturdays 9 till 2 and 9 till 5.30 weekdays. You would have to leave it with us for repair.
