good V36 tune shops in QLD?

Recommended Posts

I'm on the Sunny coast but happy to travel to find a place that's knowledgeable on the V36 platform. My first job is an Akenbono brake upgrade (I have the parts via gumtree).

Any suggestions?

  • mybrains changed the title to good V36 tune shops in QLD?

East Coast Customs are probably the most popular option. They’re in the northern suburbs of Brisbane. They do a lot of VQ’s as well as other platforms. I thought I heard they may be the only licensed Uprev tuner in Qld even 🤷‍♂️


I did the brake upgrade last year. A great upgrade over stock. Did you get adaptor brackets for the front or steel lines too? I followed a thread from the US forums which was pretty comprehensive. I took a fair few photos if you need any help 👍

Yes East Coast Customs are the go. Rob actually spent a bit of time with Uprev in the US.
Best to give them a call and speak with them on what you want, pretty good staff and know the platform quiet well.

    • Clean MAFs, Check O2 sensors are good, Check knock sensors are good. They are quiet conservative on timing and factory knock maps (low Octane) are good. Highway I get 8.8-9.2L/100km in my 370z so must be an issue somewhere. Tuning anything VQ based is expensive due to Uprev licence costs & tuners knowing how to use it. HPtuners can now do a small amount of stuff but not worth the time compared to Uprev
    • Ok, wonder if that is normal??  Even my wife's bulky VQ35 AWD Murano does better than that, usually returns around 9L/100km on the highway. V35 6MT returns around 7.5L/100km and my current Q50 is mid to high 6s.
    • Pre tune it was usually sitting around mid 12L/100km. Post tune it went to around 11L/100km.
    • Found a card in the manuals bag that has the override code for a mongoose brand system. Found the exact one in my car Here. I don’t seem to have the second little key for the immobiliser however.
    • Just found a little connector that it fits in, it tricks the ignition into thinking the key is in for like 30 seconds and I can turn the starter without putting my key in. I can still start the car the usual way using my actual key. Very odd
