Jim’s Word – March 2018

When it comes to modern performance vehicles, dyno tuning is by far the most important process. First and foremost, it is the quintessential thing that makes all modifications work safely and efficiently, as well as benefiting your car with enhanced performance.

Now you might think all dynos are the same, and software is software, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. What’s even more crucial is that your tuner knows what they’re doing.

Your car is often one of your greatest assets, so be sure to question your tuner’s level of professionalism thoroughly before you decide to let them tune your car. Quite often if it seems like they don’t know what they’re talking about, they don’t. If you see a dyno pushed in the corner of a workshop with a tiny fan on wheels to ‘cool the engine’, that’s questionable. Ask them about their dyno setup. Never assume a performance tuning workshop knows what they’re doing.

I’ve been tuning cars for more 30 years, constantly keeping up to date with the latest technology. If you I add it up I’ve tuned somewhere around 7000 cars. Tunehouse is a national distributor of many high-end products associated with tuning. We’re a certified Walkinshaw Performance dealer, a certified COBB dealer, and also an Australian master distributor of EcuTek software. This doesn’t come by chance. We’ve worked tirelessly over the years to be one of the best in the business, and the relationship we have with our affiliate brands backs this up. Our customers are also our greatest advocates (read our testimonial section – click here).

The Tunehouse dyno cell is state-of-the-art and a first of its kind in Australia, possibly even the world. I’m a very hands on tuner so I need complete control over the environment. The dyno cell is the result of more than half-a-million-dollar investment. It’s the gem of Tunehouse. As a business owner I wanted accuracy and consistency for my customers so they have confidence in what we deliver to them in terms of results and reliability.

I’m passionate about tuning and passionate about my customers. If you’d like to know anything about vehicle tuning vehicle please don’t hesitate to contact us on (02) 9557 4000 or email info@tunehouse.com.au.
