Power requirements for power seat?

I'm building a playseat and I've grabbed one of the seats from my old e46 but I want the power to work.
How many amps do you think the seat will require? I got it working with a spare 12v 5a ac dc transformer I had lying around but 5amps is way to low, the seat moves incredibly slow. I was going to go pick up a 10amp but I wanted to be sure that was going to do it. Any ideas?
