Question: Hi, I have a Ford Mustang fitted with a Boss 429 engine. Hope to have it on the road this year. have you ever worked/tuned one of these before? Any tips? Cheers Spence
Answer: Loads of Mustangs! we've one '68 302 in this week, and we're overhauling another one. The 429 is legendary of course! All I can advise is to find out as much as possible about it, and treat it like a Lady until you're sure everything's ok. I'd love to get involved if you need a hand tuning it.

Question: Hi Alan I have been offered a chance to buy a Prodrive ECU which is the same connection as my std ecu on my MY95 JDM WRX wagon with a td04 - apparently this is mapped for a td04 UK car - any reason why i cannot or shouldn\'t fit this to my wagon? I\'d love a Simtek, but my budget wont stretch that far, but i dont want to risk a scarp engine with a dodgy ecu!! ECU No RP64, ROM 27544 - is this safe or should i decline? thanks ANdy
Answer: Hi Andy - Give Martyn a call on 01752 345880 on Monday and ask his opinion. I'm not honestly sure if that's a match or not.

Question: Hi Alan, I own an (\'07) Audi A3 sportback 2.0Ltr (170) turbo diesel quattro \'S\' line. I have heard about your legendary service and so and am very interested in the possibility of getting it remapped. Can you tell me would I need a physical chip fitted or a software upgrade? What would be the bhp/torque/benefit gain and lastly, how much would you charge?
Answer: Hi Darren - We program those serially, via the port. The net effect is it's undetectable! You'd gain 30 bhp and 60 ft lbs torque. We dyno test the car before and after. The conversion retails at 445 I can do you an online deal at 405 inc vat! 01752 345880 to book.

Question: RS Turbo - hi again alan would it make a lot of difference to my car doing a set up ?
Answer: All the difference in the world! the older cars have a lot more to "tweak" and it's a rare day we get an RS Turbo in that's set up correctly. I'm sure you'd find it beneficial.

Question: RS Turbo - hi alan im looking at getting my car set up its been chipped and has a newman cam just had the turbo reconed got k and n and full stainless pipe. do u do set ups for these if so how much ? and wat would u do many thanks dale
Answer: Hi Dale- I cut my teeth on these, so I wouldn't see too many problems dealing with it. Depending on what we actually find, I'd say a double session would sort it out, 120 plus vat. the object is to be able to set it up as accurately as possible, and we'd use everything at our disposal. Of course, you'd also have before and after dyno print outs, and you're welcome to sit in while we take care of it.
