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 …

Faulty Forester Fixed.

Steve Fry Uncategorised

Sam contacted us after having a Haltech Elite ECU wired into his Forester STI. He already had it tuned but it wasn’t quite right. The previous tuner had reported some difficulty in getting the variable valve timing to work and it was left in a non-operational state. After detailed discussions over email and telephone, we booked Sam in and he …

Summer Action Day – Castle Combe

Steve Fry Uncategorised

It’s 5.15am on Saturday.  The coffees have been consumed, the team are ready, the cars are prepped, polished and poised – Castle Combe Summer Action Day here we come! Summer Action Day is always a great event but there was extra excitement for us this year – the grand reveal of Enginetuner’s nitrous-fuelled Impreza demo car in its new livery.  …

Glorious Goodwood!

Steve Fry Uncategorised

After a year without car shows, it is great to see car shows making a comeback as we approach ‘normality’. But one show stands head and shoulders above the others – Goodwood Festival of Speed! Unfortunately, Goodwood is a bit of a trek from Plymouth so it was another silly o’clock alarm call.  We set off at the crack of …

Perran Drag and Drift

Steve Fry Uncategorised

The early bird may get the worm, but when it comes to a weekend lay in, the philosophy is usually the second mouse gets the cheese. However, this weekend offered a day of drag racing and drifting, so the alarm was set for stupid AM. Winner, I am awake before the alarm, coffee consumed, gear packed, and good to go …

AIMing for perfection

Steve Fry Uncategorised

Adam brought us his recently run-in classic GC8 Impreza track car to fit his AIM dash cluster and remap his Syvecs ECU.  And what a car this is!   After a health check on the ramp and some new Hardrace rear trailing arms, we got to work wiring in the new dashboard. The AIM is a fully customisable dashboard that …

A Skyline gets the Enginetuner touch

Steve Fry Uncategorised

Bradley contacted Enginetuner in January via our Facebook page to enquire about having his R34 Nissan Skyline mapped. During a subsequent call with Ben, he mentioned how he had bought an Enginetuner-built Impreza STI and was blown away by how well it drove. As seems to be the norm for Imprezas, his car had been tweaked before by other establishments, …

More than just a body swap

Steve Fry Uncategorised

Stephen brought us his highly modified WRX back in 2018 for some tuning work on his Alcatek ECU. He immediately fell in love with our facility after receiving a tour of our workshop and seeing at first hand the services we offer. Whilst on the premises, Stephen noticed a Prodrive edition STI sitting lonely in the corner. He asked the …

An 824BHP Newage monster

admin Uncategorised

Wayne has had his 2002 Prodrive Impreza STI since 2013 and wasted very little time in bringing it to Enginetuner for upgrading. We initially rebuilt his engine by stroking it out to 2.1 litres, adding bigger injectors, an Alcatek ECU and a Precision turbo. Looking for a fast road car, this gave Wayne a very usable 500BHP or so in …
