My mods

Apexi Rev/Speed meter
Apexi AFC neo
Apexi AVC-R*
Apexi type pro n1 coilovers with Swift springs*
Apex turbo timer*
Apexi N1 full stainless straight threw exhaust system.*
Turbosmart dump valve*
omori boost gauge*

The car is running great since I got it at 1.4 bar boost. I have not seen any paper work for bhp but I guess the car was mapped for the mods.

Quick question for all, when a car is being mapped is the vin number used or any number apart from the reg of the car.

I'm assuming you've got insurance quotes on such esoteric beasts?

You "guess" the car is mapped for the mods ??
Do you not think this is something that wants checking ?

Yes I agree with you 100% I am getting a few upgrades and I use my motorbike most of the time for work. I will have the car mapped ASAP And as I said the car is running perfect since I got it. I know for a piece of mind I should have got this done ages ago.

My blob does this every now and then and i was wondering why, so i guess i need a new maf.

Anyone know where to get a decent second hand one from.

I'll not argue with that, but I would observe that the Hurst cars type R (http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/2842657.htm) will have poorly controlled intake temps on the original TMIC with many bent fins and a 1.5bar map. Before I went FMIC, putting a charge temp gauge on my STi6 RA Lim showed some shocking figures - easily up to 50C with a few pulls at 1.35bar. Uprated IC would be number 1 on my list for that particular car.

Amazing innit!, that the temp rises so fast, imagine what is happening on that car at 110 mph. it is just a matter of time.

An afternoon spent with a toothpick and patience will help a lot, as will tilting the I/c a bit to change the angle that the air enters the matrix and exits over the top of the gearbox.

Its funny how the customer spent the good part of 6000 (and the rest) for engine work and mapping with David at API and was not advised on a larger top mount or going front mount, neither are there any invoices advising or recommending any of this

Is someone trying to cover their back?

I suppose were only all human.

Saying all of this i have had many cars with API's work having been carried out and are of a very high standard.

Yet i have recommended customers in the past who have had engines rebuilt or work done from API and would most definately give them the thumbs up

Can you please shed some light on this David as i would be p***ed off if i had spent 6000 on a build to be told its a "matter of time".

I have only held you highly in this trade and recommended you in the past to various customers.

So a response would be grand.

This one would be easy to explain:

Customer: I want x amount of BHP
Specialist: It'll cost you this much
Customer: I don't want to pay that much
Specialist: Well if you want to achieve x bhp and be assured it won't go bang if you really give it some, you'll have to pay that much. You can scrimp on things like FMIC, Oil cooler etc... but not if you want to drive it hard, especially on a track where you'll get to 3 figure speeds
Customer: Oh, I drive like a saint most of the time, it'll be fine. *coughs* B*ll****!
Specialist. Fair be warned say I!

The spec of the car is something that is negotiated verbally and then agreed on paper, but in the end it's the customers call to either adhere to or disregard the discussions with the specialist. I've never heard of an instance where the specialist scribbles on a spec a disclaimer to the effect of: "we don't recommend this addition or omission" and tries to impose limitations on the way the vehicle is driven.

I don't recognise the car at all and unless I can get a name of the guy that allegedly had work done here, I am unable to comment. Many people have a budget [ most do ] and I have to work within a budget and it is often the case that the final stages of the 'conversion ' are left until funds are available. Then something happens and the car needs to be sold on - unfinished - and we end up here.

APi warranty is never transferrable, is for 6 months. So I have no need ' to cover my back '

Give me some more info and l can tell you what was done, when, for how much and so on.

A guy from my work has the following Type R up for sale as of 5th May:

http://nesf.forumotion.co.uk/t1498-type-r-story

Its an outstanding vehicle and although no where near standard you can see his full story and everything which has been done!

He's asking 8500 on our intranet at work but as stated it is a buyers market and you'll only get what someone is willing to pay.

Yes you may!

Someone who has spent quite a lot more money than 6k on an engine build at APi and has some insight into how the process of negotiating a build works!

Ah Ok, that is Tristan Parsons from Liverpool, nice guy , nice car. We did the engine a year or two back on quite a tight budget. We couldn't map it properly as the clutch slipped, we had advise it wasn't up to much but he had no budget left to do it at the time of the engine build. Then he had a
clutch fitted and we moved on , then a duff maf, and then, and then; etc etc.

I think he just ran out of money and didn't use the car much so it went.

David APi

PS proper engine build though, no expense spared.

Hi, yes i did buy the car in the end. Got the price down a bit and a few extras chucked in with the sale... Only thing i am unhappy about is SVA's Crap customer service. I have been waiting on them to fit an alarm and waxoil the car for 3 weeks now. They rang me up the other day saying it was ready and when i got down there no alarm lol Hopefully should be driving away in it tomorrow.

I have been told by SVA that they have flashed the ecu to run 98vpower not remapped ?? Is there anyway to check this ?? I seem to think they prob havent.

Thanks for all the replys i look forward to owning my first impreza
