Gavin Wood S-AFC Tune Results GOOD!


Recommended Posts

hey guys, just took my car to gavin wood on the gold coast to get my s-afc tuned. He did a great job like everyone said he would, car was only running 120 rwhp now its up to 165 rwhp, so very happy, made the car pull the whole way thru the rev range instead of dropping off around 4 -5 grand, also was only running 11:1 air/fuel EEK!, so thats all been fixed up to 14:1 roughly. saw some nice cars while i was there too :)

and all done for a good price to, very worth it

How long did they have your car for?

My cars been to Gavins for servicing before, but when I rang up a week or so ago to book in for an SAFC install/tune I was told they would need the car for 2-3 days, I know there mega busy but WTF!

I promptly rang another workshop for it to be done in a couple of hours.

HI SHANE.

CAN YOU TELL ME WHO TOLD YOU IT WOULD TAKE 2-3 DAYS PLEASE.

I THINK THAT THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN A MISUNDERSTANDING ON OUR BEHALF.

THERE ARE SO MANY ABBREVIATIONS NOW - SAFC,PFC,BOV,ETC,ETC.

SAFC DOESN'T TAKE 3 DAYS TO FIT.

SORRY ABOUT THE STUFF UP MATE.

REGARDS

No probs Gavin, it was a young bloke, dont remember his name sorry.

Don't see how he could have got mixed up because he actually suggested I save my money and go for a PFC.

But anyhow I'll be back for next round of mods... :thumbsup:

hey, yeah the car is a r31 with a rb20det. i know 165 seems a bit low, seeing im running 11psi, fmic, 3in mandrel bent zorst and a tuned afc, but i can tell ya its better than what it used to be. i have been a little concerned since i got the engine on the lowish power outputs, at leaves gavin put some much improved grunt behind it,,, mine as up there for a few days, but then again he's a busy man and i didnt really need my car back in a hurry so i didnt really mind too much, rather him take his time than pressure them to get it done and rush the job :D

but any feedback on the lack of power would be appreciated... also take into consideration the inacuracy of dyno's so i believe?

HEAR HEAR - I HAVE SEEN A DIFFERENCE OF 60 HP BETWEEN DYNOS ON THE SAME

DAY , SAME VEHICLE AND SAME TEMPS.

I USE A DYNO AS A TUNING TOOL - NOT TO GIVE AN ACCURATE POWER READING.
