Featured Part : Link ECU

Steve Fry Uncategorised

Here at Enginetuner we love fully mappable, standalone ECUs. We have a strong affiliation with Link in particular and we are proud to be running a Link G4 ECU in our demo drag car as well as in a significant number of our own cars.   With direct plug-in ECUs available for a wide range of vehicles, the plug and play functionality is fantastic. If, however, there are no plug-in ECUs listed for your vehicle …

VA VA VOOM

Steve Fry Uncategorised

Andy has owned his 2014 1st edition VA chassis STi for three years. The car itself was an ex-demonstrator, packed with all the desired factory optional extras.  Andy purchased the car from a company called Evotune who had rebuilt and forged the EJ25 engine after it had suffered a bottom end failure. Once rebuilt, the car was running sweet. However, …

JDM Combe ’21

Steve Fry Uncategorised

As the car show calendar winds down for another year, we were very excited at the prospect of JDM Combe being the last show that Enginetuner visited in 2021.   As usual, the alarm clock was dialled in for “stupid o’clock” as another early start beckoned (sometimes there isn’t really any point going to bed!).  First mission of the day …

Seeing Double?

Steve Fry Uncategorised

Kelvin brought us his immaculate duo of retro Fords for a dyno health check before promptly being tuned. On initial glance we thought we were seeing double, however delve a little deeper and the differences quickly become apparent.  A side profile view reveals the first obvious difference between these pair of Fords; one being an Escort Cabriolet – RS Turbo …

Midnight Purple Haze

Steve Fry Uncategorised

Sunny purchased his Impreza STi three years ago as a completely standard car.  As is often the case in the world of Subaru ownership, the pursuit of the flat four rumble meant a stainless steel exhaust was the first modification to grace this Impreza.  Peering over the top of the slippery slope a GFB blow off valve was swiftly installed and then came the quest for more power which saw an ECUtek ECU remap, …

Fast H

Steve Fry Uncategorised

You don’t earn the nickname ‘Fast H’ by dawdling about. Fast H, also known as Harry, earned his ‘Fast’ stripes thanks to a history of rapid motors. A true petrolhead with a penchant for speed, Harry’s white 2007 Hawkeye Impreza STI takes centre stage in his colllection and wears the “F9ST H” number plate with pride. Originally purchased four years ago …

Report from Perranporth Drag and Drift – 11th September 2021

Steve Fry Uncategorised

Static car shows are great.  However, there is something special about events at which the driving / racing / drifting is the core of the day.  Perran drag and drift at Spitfire Raceway in Cornwall never disappoints on this front. An opportunity to test and stretch the legs of your car up the drag strip is simply exhilarating.  The multi-layered …

Enter the Mighty Mouse

Steve Fry Uncategorised

You may recognise the name ‘Rumblebox’ from one of our previous features – Jonny’s superb FXT Forester.  Meet his latest project: ‘Mouse the MX-5’.  But to be precise, this one belongs to Aimee, his partner.  As a purchase for Aimee, Jonny wanted to ensure it was reliable and running well. When purchased from the previous owner it was completely drift …

Should’ve gone to Enginetuner…

Steve Fry Uncategorised

Jake has owned his immaculate Impreza STI for six years. Originally bought as a fairly stock car, Jake worked on bringing the exterior styling to his taste, adding some new wheels, BC coilovers, full splitter and underskirt kit, uprated discs and pads along with some other cosmetic parts. Jake informs us that it ran perfectly fine up until 100k miles …

Mustang Mania

Steve Fry Uncategorised

It’s not uncommon to spy a classic Mustang lurking in amongst the modern performance cars down at Enginetuner headquarters. Regular visitors will immediately recognise John’s stunning blue ’67 Ford. That’s because we’ve been lovingly maintaining, modifying and lightly restoring it over the past 14 years (at least!).  John, like most others, continues to be a loyal customer to Enginetuner, bringing …
