Our Facilities

Australia’s Most Professional Workshop

Usually a picture tells a thousand words and as you can see from some of the pictures – that may just be true. At Tunehouse however our facilities need to be seen to be truly appreciated. The design, layout and presentation of the workshop is a constant reminder of the craftsmanship, values and quality that the business stands for. Every day the staff of Tunehouse walk through the door they are reminded of the fundamental philosophy that Tunehouse exists for and they are reminded what it is to be part of the Tunehouse Team.

Tunehouse caters for virtually all makes and models and whether you’re after a log book service, full race setup or bespoke and customised performance upgrade we have the not only the expertise but also the facilities, tools and equipment to deliver top quality results. Tunehouse has been awarded the accolade of ‘Australia’s Most Professional Workshop’, by the IAME (Institute of Automotive Mechanical Engineers) which we refuse to take for granted. The workshop is often requested for use by our technical and advertising partners for feedback and testing of their products. We also the use of our workshop to serve as a backdrop to corporate events, training as well as photo and video shoots.

The Institute of Automotive Mechanical Engineers has teamed up with Hofmann (Specialist Workshop Equipment Supplier and part of the Snap On Tools Group) to find Australia’s most professional workshop.

Celebrating its 80th anniversary, Hofmann and the IAME surveyed a number of Australia’s most prominent automotive workshops to find a suitable winner. After a long search a clear winner emerged and we’re happy to announce that Australia’s Most Professional Workshop for 2011 is Tunehouse!

Dyno Tuning Cell

The Dyno tuning cell / wind tunnel is also contained wholly within the workshop and itself carries the weight of being the best dyno cell in Australia – awarded as much by a number of automotive publications and associations. We’re also led to believe it may be a one of the kind not only in Australia, but the world in terms of it’s features and functionality. You can read more about it right here if you like.

The rest of the workshop is fitted out with the very latest in automotive diagnostic equipment, tools and testing equipment. Tunehouse can handle virtually any job from routine servicing and mechanical repairs right through to research & development of motorsport and performance parts and every line of mechanical and performance work in between. The shop has been laid out to ensure every car is welcome. We have the facilities for both you and your car at Tunehouse with a waiting room, amenities and plenty of parts and products on display – if you’d like to ask a few questions, we always have customer service and trained technical specialists on hand to help.

You might even want to try team boss Jim Ghelis’s coffee – he takes the same pride in his lattes that he does in his tuning. You might even say his commercial espresso machine out in the staff lunchroom is his second most prized possession only tipped slightly by the dyno room!

When you walk into the Tunehouse workshop yourself you will see what we mean. The care with which we maintain the workshop and present it is the exact same we take with the cars that come through the door. We take the time, we do things properly and we know that you’ll appreciate it when you experience it. See the Tunehouse difference for yourself take a tour here.

Power Of Dyno Cell

Tunehouse Dyno Cell – Nothing else quite like it.

The Tunehouse Dyno room is literally one of its kind in terms of the Performance and Tuning industry. While there are plenty of tuning shops that have put some walls up around their dyno and make space for a fan in front of it, the Tunehouse Dyno room is a purpose built, engineered solution that is in essence a wind tunnel for dyno tuning. The story behind the build of Australia’ Most advanced Tuning Cell can be seen HERE!

BOOK A TUNE

Ready To Use Dyno Room

The Tunehouse Dyno Room is ‘tuned’ and ready to use. The Dyno has seen any number of different applications over the years including Open Wheel Race Cars, 1000HP + Drag cars, 800 HP + Street Cars and has is regularly also used for diagnostic procedures on otherwise standard road cars and modified street & performance cars. Tunehouse is often contracted by other professional workshops for their tuning work too, so your car may have already even been on our dyno! We recommend coming by and seeing it for yourself as quite simply, it’s impressive.

If you’re considering a Tunehouse Dyno Tune please don’t hesitate to call us for more information, email Tunehouse at [email protected] or drop by the shop as we’re more than happy to discuss your project and how we can help.

“I’m very proud of what I set out to achieve. The Tunehouse Dyno Room is state of the art and a first of its kind in Australia, possibly even the world. As a hands on tuner I wanted complete control over the environment as this is important and also as a business owner I wanted accuracy for my customers so they confidence in what we deliver to them in terms of results and reliability.

What Makes The Tunehouse Dyno Cell Unique?

Air Flow

The Tunehouse wind tunnel is designed to replicate genuine wind speeds up to 160km/h and that is not just at the front of the car – The entire vehicle is exposed to the type of wind that it would experience traveling at 160KM’h out on the road or at a track. Other dyno cells simply use a fan aimed at the engines radiator in order to keep the coolant temperatures acceptable while tuning. The Tunehouse room in fact takes much more info consideration such as how the air affects the car’s undercarriage and exhaust system. In the real world the exhaust system is exposed to significant air flow dissipating exhaust temperatures which is completely replicated on the Tunehouse dyno.

Control

The Tunehouse dyno not only has the ability to control absolute airflow that the car is exposed to in the cell, through a very unique design it can also control the barometric pressures that the car is exposed to. The barometric pressures that a car is exposed to in the real world varies significantly such as when driving up hills etc and this can have an impact on the tune as there are no compensations made for it when the setup is done. One of the unique features of the Tunehouse dyno is the ability to adjust the barometric pressures inside the room. Because of this, the Tunehouse team can replicate these pressures from sea level, right up to those experience at height such as the top of Australia’s most famous circuit, Mount Panorama.

Noise

When the Tunehouse dyno was designed it was done so with acoustics in mind. When the tuning process is being performed it is important to hear the engine and the noises it makes. When a vehicle is being driven at full load there are a huge amount of acoustics at play such as exhaust noise, intake noise, wheel and tyre rotations noise etc. The walls of the Tunehouse dyno room however have been acoustically designed to reduce the noises or frequencies that are not important and amplify the ones that are. This means that when tuning in the Tunehouse Dyno Cell, we have every possible chance of hearing what is needed to be heard and done easily as we don’t need to mentally filter out the background noise.

Environmentally Friendly

Given the Dyno’s capacity to host massive 1000 HP vehicles, there can be a lot of heat and noise generated during testing and tuning. The Dyno is cooled by water for these purposes and true to the Tunehouse ECO friendly approach this water is recycled on site in a 1000 Litre storage tank for re-use. Another Environmental concern was the noise and this too has been addressed with the special sound proofing efforts to minimize the acoustics outside the room that could potentially effect surrounding neighbors and staff inside the shop.

Dynapack Dyno

You can read more about the Tunehouse 9600 Series AWD Dynapack Dyno HERE! Suffice to say all measure have been taken with it’s design to ensure repeatability, consistency and accuracy for testing and tuning. The Tunehouse dyno has accurately shown to read the difference in power, even as small as it is with your car’s light on versus being off for a power run. What this means to us is we know and have confidence when we measure a change in tune and how it impacts your car. This accuracy as well as the complete control of the tuning environment in the Tunehouse Dyno Cell means no matter what day of the year it is or in what season it is we can tune, adjust and measure to the most infinite degree.

Viewing Window

While it isn’t feasible in terms of legalities and insurance for you to be in the room when your car is being tested and tuned, we at Tunehouse understands that there are certain things you as a customer and enthusiast may simply want to be involved in. As such there is a special viewing window in the Customer Waiting Area for you to view the tuning and testing being performed. Remember though, this process can take some time so we recommend not planning on staying at Tunehouse for the entire time. We do a great Espresso though if you do decide to stick around!

Equipment

Tunehouse invests in only the best available technology to ensure we deliver maximum value to our customers. Inside the Dyno room you find Camera’s for the exhaust tail pipe so the tuner can literally see what is coming out of the engine. The screen that displays the Dyno’s various outputs is displayed on a large easy to read 60 inch LED display panel in front of the car. Tunehouse also have various other tuning and diagnostic aids on hand available for use with all projects including, Wireless OBDII scanners & PC Logging facilities, 5 Gas Emissions Analyzer, In Cylinder Combustion Pressure Test Equipment, Advanced Knock Sensing Equipment, Air Fuel Ratio Testing and Logging and much more…
