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.

UNHAPPY CUSTOMER!!!!!! That's something we take quite seriously here at Redline Tuning. We are not going to name any names or go to much into detail, but we received a call saying that they had had there car mapped at another tuning company in essex and were not happy with what had be done, so we said we would take a look. With the car being such a lovely example you would have expected that some car would have been taken with the calibration on the engine, unfortunately this was not the case, just have a look at the dyno graph to see the results. The customer left with a completely different performing car from the one he brought to us. Be careful people where you take your car!!!!?

THATS A BIG ONE!!! 6.4L Aston Martin Virage in here at Redline Tuning for intermittent running fault. Faults traced to bad wiring, connection, relays, and low fuel pressure, after all the issues were addressed and rectified, she's back to her former glory.

workshop blog tuning amd remap flash


Well its done!! and what an improvement!!!!! Gideon brought his rather rare Mitsubishi Mirage which is powered by a 1.6 mivec engine to us earlier in the year for a bit of a tune up to see if we could squeeze a few more horses out of her, unfortunately after getting her on the dyno she was only making just over 100bhp, there was something drastically wrong. Due to the rarity of these 1.6 mivec engines we knew parts may be a problem, we set about testing and stripping the engine, unfortunately the only thing for it was a complete over hall. The engine was completely stripped and rebuilt to stock specification due to the customer wanting to keep it "stock" to meet the class regulations, and after the running in process, we were happy to open her up and he now has 160bhp to play with.?
