  1. I have just had the Collins CP2-E upgrade (including ITG intake, intercooler, boost hoses and turbo actuator) on my ST and I'm very pleased with it so far. It should be delivering around 240-245bhp. I had a look at most of the competition and thought this offered best value for money for me. (I was upgrading from MP215 with Mountune cat back and induction hose). The Mountune upgrade is very expensive for what you get. I don't doubt that it's good but it was too pricey for me. A lot of the stage 2 upgrades insist on having a sports cat or de-cat which pushes the price up. I don't think it's a necessary upgrade as, based on the stats I've seen, it only makes a negligible difference to the air flow. Sent from my G8441 using Tapatalk
  2. Yes, there's a few ways to do it. Have a look at my build thread to see how I did it. Sent from my G8441 using Tapatalk
  3. Tickets booked. We’ll be bringing my Fiesta.
  4. Welcome back. I’d imagine with those mods it both sounds and goes pretty well!
  5. The boost solenoid is a common component to fail on the ST225. My wife’s ST had similar symptoms to what you’re reporting and it was owing to the boost solenoid. If you have a look on YouTube there are a few videos showing the kind of behaviour you might see, although for us it was intermittent and fairly erratic! I had a go at replacing it myself but it was far too fiddly for me.
  6. Nice to see something a bit different on here, love the look of that exhaust! Must give people a bit of a surprise to hear a Ka making such noises.

  8. Last week I had the car's third service and first MOT and sorted out insurance to cover the additional modifications I had planned. My premium (with Adrian Flux) has gone up £10 for the year, which I'm not going to complain about given the additional power! Having found a few extra pennies down the back of the sofa I decided to expand a little on my upgrades... I added in a torque mount, quick shift and turbo actuator and upgraded to the CP2-E remap (240-245bhp) to take advantage of the actuator. I was very impressed with Collins - nice tidy workshop, friendly people and good care and attention was given to my pride and joy! I came home via the Peak District in order to have a little fun and the difference from the MP215 is significant. The most immediate difference is the noise; the induction sound is so much louder. Then there's the power. It pulls harder and longer and feels more raw. It can still drive very comfortably and sedately but just takes off when you put your foot down! I've got a couple of decent trips planned in the next few weeks so will have an opportunity to test it out on some more fun roads soon.
  9. Sorry, have only just seen this thread. Over the last few years I've found Adrian Flux and Need2Insure have given me the best quotes for a car with mods.
  10. I spent the day at Collins Performance up in Cheshire... very happy so far, will add some further details when I get the time!
  11. Thanks Darren, however, painted calipers don't really fit with the style I'm going for!
  12. Good news. Mrs P and I will be there too - just got to decide which car to bring before I book our tickets! Sent from my G8441 using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks. There was no advisory on the MOT. I'm quite surprised that it wasn't flagged up. Sent from my G8441 using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks - it looks and sounds great. It's not much louder than the stock exhaust but it has a lovely low burbling sound.
