I would like to give Tunehouse my highest recommendation. Recently I cracked my sump of my Bf Typhoons ZF 6spd auto. I hunted around sydney for someone to help most people did not even know what the gearbox was others wanted me to take out a second mortgage.
However Jim and the boys down at Tunehouse gave me a new pan and filter and did a complete flush of the box for less than half of what most guys quoted. the car has never driven better gear changes are smother and all those worrying noises have gone. I very rarely rave about mechanical work on my car but these guys are something else. On top of doing my gearbox they provided me with a complementary vehicle inspection which even included a brake fluid boiling point test.
There workshop is Hospital grade and there dyno room is something out of star wars. I give my highest recommendation to these guys, anyone in sydney who loves there car go see the guys done at Tunehouse.
Just thought I’d post a quick update on my recent tune. I spoke with Jim a few weeks ago about possibly getting my car back on the dyno to do a quick check and tidy up. Jim said he’d learnt lots since my last tune and had a few ideas about getting a little more out of it and reducing fuel consumption.
So down I went and Jim chucked my car on and started weaving his magic tuning and flashing, tuning and flashing. Anyway car was on the dyno from about 10am till 3pm and came off with 340rwkw and 884nm. Not too much more power but the mid range is such an improvement. Now time for it’s usual test drive around the dodgy streets of Marrickville. What can I say, geez it’s hold on tight stuff now. Quite amazing how much better the car is and how much harder it goes. Loads more mid range and you can really feel the extra torque. We even flashed the old tune back in and took it for a squirt to see the difference, it was like night and day.
Now I’ve had the car for about 2 weeks and the fuel economy figures are really impressing me. On my last tune I was struggling to keep my economy below 14L/100 with the short trips I do to and from work. Now I’m easily managing 13L/100 with short trips and a number of squirts to stretch the legs. Could easily baby it along and keep it in the mid 12′s
Anyway all in all a great result which has impressed me quite a bit. Well done to Jim, Tony and George for all their efforts. This will keep me coming back time and time again.
