Jim’s Word – February 2018

2018 is here! First of all, the Tunehouse staff and I would like to thank every one of our customers who supported Tunehouse in 2017. Our customers are our number one priority, so again we thank you for your business.

2018 is gearing up to be our biggest ever year. Our 86/BRZ THR +100kW Turbo Kits are in full flight (click here to see our install video), as is our place as Sydney’s premier Walkinshaw Performance dealer — we’ve already completed more than half a dozen Walkinshaw Performance packages since coming back from the Xmas break.

Our THR 2009 HSV ClubSport R8 will be up for sale at some point soon (contact us if you’re interested), and in its place will be a brand new development vehicle. We can say too much just yet, but what we can say is that it’ll have quite a few cylinders, plenty of ‘ponies’, presence, and poise. And like we did with our THR Toyota 86, we will position ourselves as the industry leader.

I’ve taken it upon myself to go above and beyond in a hands-on way in 2018, so expect to see lots from me. We’ll be doing lots of customer Q&A videos, more tech articles, insights into vehicle engineering, and plenty of other great content across our various social media platforms — Facebook, YouTube, the Tunehouse newsletter, and Instagram.

We’ve also got some exciting things in the pipeline regarding our THR Toyota 86, including heading back to Wakefield Park to break our own 86/BRZ track record and continuing the development of our 86/BRZ THR products.

It was great to see a BRZ with one of our THR +100kW Turbo Kits reviewed in the February edition of Motor Magazine (click here to see the feature). Here’s a pull quote from the reviewer: “There’s more speed going into the chassis, more load onto the tyres, and you’re able to take it closer to the edge with less effort, and in a completely complementary way, making it even more rewarding than ever.”

If you’re in the area near Tunehouse (Marrickville, NSW), please feel free to stop in and say g’day. We look forward to seeing you sometime in 2018!
