Question: Hi Alan, Hope all is well! Cars been running well since martyn last mapped it, pulls nicely! Was driving home this evening and my engine light came on, i plugged in my fault checker which gave po546 egt sensor fault, its not come on since having it mapped until now, and i dont actually have an egt sensor in the up pipe or connected to the cars wiring anymore, any ideas what may of thrown up that code?
Answer: It may be that the warning light threshold has been crossed for some reason. If you can, get it down so Martyn can check it out. I don't think it's a big deal.

Question: hi alan i own a minker 323 which has only covered 58000 miles. i am enquiring how much roughly it would cost to rebuild the engine (no problems just general wear and tear)and set her up properly.she is currently running at standard boost and i was wanting to increase the boost but still ascertain a good amount of reliability. the only mods i know of are a set of pipercross filters although i would prefer the standard filters sourcing if possible.reading up i am led to believe you did some work on the ecu when she was a couple of years old. unfortunately i dont know of anyone in the north west of england to do this task that knows what they are talking about. cheers gary lloyd
Answer: Hi Gary - Glad to assist you with that one, I'm sure our Andy would relish the prospect of building one of these again. We've built a few over the years, although not recently of course! Funnily enough, I'm sure I have a couple of the original airboxes. If we were doing the whole thing, I'd allow between 1500 and 2500 depending on what actually needs to be replaced.

Question: Hello Alan, I recently bought an 03 wrx with a full stainless de-cat pipe and aftermarket filter element. The car has also been re-mapped by yourself with a graph showing 261 bhp. Can the standard engine cope with this power as i have heard some horror stories. Is it also right that it must only be run on v-power fuel? Thanks for your time.
Answer: Hi James - I'd say that would be fine, it's well within normal tolerances at those levels. All Imprezas need high octane fuel if tuned, and V power is the fuel all we tuners like best. I wouldn't see a major problem running occasional BP Ultimate if there is no V power about. 95 octane is a no no!
