Contemplating a professional quality custom tune on your late model Subaru, Mitsubishi, Mazda or R35/350Z/370Z? Maybe considering a reflash on your late model Audi/VW/Skoda?

All of my tunes have been developed during a rigorous dyno tuning formula to find the safe limits of various combinations. I am then able to offer a safe base tune for an optimal power upgrade and then working with the client, establish how much further the tune can be pushed towards their eventual safe power goals. With a background in mechanics, mechanical engineering and IT, I can understand the ECU logic but also the mechanics of your engine and drivetrain/steering geometry to give you... the driver, the most enjoyable on road driving experience.

Of course, peak power and a nice fat gain in torque is great but the true essence of the performance is in the way the car drives on the street. Being able to squeeze down the throttle and get an instant rush of smooth controlled torque is key to performance but more importantly, a predictable power delivery. On/Off power deliveries feel fast on the road but are not exactly a street car, nor do they make cornering anything less than a sphincter clenching experience!

I base my tunes around the throttle and the power delivery system.... your right foot ;) I can then let the ECU logic ensure your driving experience is as good as it gets! The throttle is an excellent method of controlling fuel economy as well, this 'valve' is often considered the pathway to power... yet it is also the pathway to fuel economy. Limiting throttle angle improves manifold vacuum, with the engine able to be 'choked' via various methods to reduce the amount of fuel and air entering the combustion chamber, diluting the intake charge with exhaust gas and creating an Exhaust Gas Recycling(EGR) effect which with the right amount of ignition timing can produce an optimal amount of torque for maintaining a constant cruise road speed.

I have during the last 15 years tuned a LOT of non-turbo 4 cylinder cars, various Nissan's, shopping trolley's, Mitsubishi's and Mazda's to my credit. I myself previously having had a self tuned highly strung 350Hp N/A 2.2L 4cyl engine before converting the car to a 140Hp/litre high performance V6 engine. I am able to bring this knowledge to late model N/A tuning, with a focus on both fuel economy and a smooth power delivery.
