GTR tuners in Perth

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Want to hear from the fellow SAU WA members about their experiences getting their car tuned.

My build is almost finished I've started looking at tuners. So far I have 3 tuners in my list and which i'd like to hear about others opinions. 

  • PZP
  • HyperDrive
  • Tune Corp

Any input would be much appreciated

Hyperdrive have tuned my RB26 for the last 13 years. Stock motor making 600rear still going strong.

Andy can get pretty busy but know's his Nissans.  

Tunes all the usual too, powerFC, link, nistune, haltech, motec etc etc

Thanks for your reply mate. I am leaning towards Andy as well.

Very few people who I'd trust in WA to tune, but also have a GTR in their care, even the usual recommendations a bit hit and miss lately from feedback

The shop I used in Beckenham returned my car like this.
It's a small sample of the amateur work done 

Turbo oil drain fouling on turbo manifold, look at it beginning to bubble up.

Brought them a brand new gearbox to fit, they put no oil in it and Dynod it like that.
They told me to not let it become a subject of an online forum discussion

Drove a 50mm long bolt into the RB26 fuel rail mount thread replacing the existing 40mm Plazmamann one already in there.  It bottomed out onto coolant rail, mount snapped, proceeded to Dyno car with snapped fuel rail mount.  

As I like to make fair assessment, I bought a spare manifold/spacer assembly and on the bench I was able to mock up that the installed bolt was indeed too long and caused the failure.

Be careful on your choice and ensure you get good work regardless of who you choose.  You earned the money fairly.

Sorry to hear the terrible experience you've had with the dyno shop man.. the only 'reputable' shop in Beckenham I can think of starts with C...

Grant - https://www.facebook.com/gsautoworksau/   for mechanical work. 

Rob Turner also does top work and will tune also. 

 

Both shops get very busy though and often cost a bit more due to the fact only quality leaves. 

Then as I said Hyperdrive a great option for tuning.
