For all you Ford lovers out there, lets see how many likes we can get for this stunning Series 1 RS Turbo, had this in this week for a winter check up, dyno and tweak just to make sure everything is ok. Lovely to see one of these in pretty much original form, hard to believe it is nearly 35 years old.

Customer turned up yesterday with his VW Touareg 3.0 TDI, he had concerns with how it pulled away and seemed terribly sluggish low down, almost to the "dangerous" point when pulling away at junctions. What made matters worse was when it was hooked up to a 20ft Caravan. After a diagnostics check and road test we were sure there was nothing wrong with the car, apart from the typical sluggishness associated with these cars, and there auto gearboxes don't help either. The customer had asked if a remap would help with this. "in a word yes!" So we carried out our RT Flash stage 1 remap and yet again what a transformation, the customer wont have any problems pulling away even with his caravan hooked up.

Calibration and mapping on this Mitsubishi Evo bringing up to a fairly impressive 610bhp and 500ftlb,

Everybody loves the T4 VW Transporter however this one has got a slightly different power plant, customer came to us with his T4 having had the conversion carried out at another tuning company, the conversion had been done pretty well but the customer had some issues with how his beloved van drove and we decided that the best thing for it was to go for a standalone ECU. Obviously the best ECU for the job in programing ability, quality and costing was for a LINK G4+ Monsoon, which has the added bonus of the on board 4 bar map sensor. So we supplied and installed the Monsoon and went with an ECU multi plug change to existing wiring loom as it was in good useable condition and to keep costings down for the customer, loaded it onto the dyno and carried out the calibration. Customer came to collect and after a drive commented "Just f****** WOW! Best money I have spent on my van to date!"

Well sorted! high spec rare Subaru Impreza WR1 came in to us yesterday for us to look at, ever since the customer had bought the car the ride was horrific, he s...aid at times dangerous, he was on the verge of selling the car!! even watching him drive up the road something didn't look right, what we found was not good at all, so after completely readjusting the suspension, setting it up correctly and giving it a light geometry set up, we took it for a spin, when the customer came to collect his car later that day his exact words were " oh my ******* god! this is a different car.
