Dyno Tuning

Dyno tuning involves placing your 4×4 on a dynamometer, or rolling road, and creating a detailed engine profile based on its performance.

Once we have your engine profile, our expert technicians can remap your ECU (Engine Control Unit) for improved performance and fuel efficiency. It’s one of the best non-intrusive, non-destructive methods for performance upgrades.

Brake service test


iDrive is a throttle control module that eliminates lag between the press of the accelerator and the actual acceleration of the engine. Unlike other systems that require manual tweaking, iDrive automatically adjusts the throttle lag based on pedal pressure, from maximum fuel efficiency for city driving to maximise responsiveness for recreational driving.

Suspension Lowering

If your vehicle is still on its manufacturer-standard suspension and never ventures away from the blacktop, chances are you could benefit from a modified suspension. This would lower your car’s centre of gravity, meaning greater control at the steering wheel.

We’re able to conduct modifications to your current suspension to simply lower your ride height, but truly performance-minded drivers would opt for a sports suspension kit with firmer springs to minimise body roll, or a coil over unit that allows further fine tuning of your car’s ride height or profile. We stock a wide range of performance suspension parts from top quality suppliers, including KYB, Bilstein, King Springs, XYZ Coil-Overs and Nolathane.

Intercooler & Turbochargers

A turbocharger redirects a portion of your car’s exhaust back into a specially designed inductor, forcing more air into your engine’s compression chamber. An intercooler follows the same principles, cooling and therefore lowering the air’s density, allowing your engine to take more air in. Both of these allow your engine to perform at a level far beyond that of which it’s normally capable, generating more power.

We stock a wide range of intercoolers and turbochargers from brands like Garret, VCM Performance, Process West, Harrop and others.

Servicing and Repair

Camshaft Upgrade

A camshaft is a long shaft that runs the length of your engine, with lobes of metal that operate valves of your engine when the shaft is turned. The lobes on a camshaft are specially aligned to operate in time with compressions of your engine, opening to release burnt fuel or draw in clean fuel.

Our team of specially trained technicians can adjust the camshaft to fine tune the expulsion and intake of fuel, optimising the performance of your engine. We can also fit new camshafts from our wide range of performance parts suppliers, including VCM Performance.
