    Tuners in Perth

    Hi all,

    looking for recommendations for tuners in Perth to carry out check/retune of the GTS, first thought is WA Performance but there SoR and don't open every Saturday, which as I'm NoR makes it hard to get there.

    Anyone got any experience with tuners NoR?

    I never dealt with any tuners NoR, but I did drive from south of mandurah very frequently to get all my tuning done at Active Automotive! I highly recommend them and I did a lot of shopping around before hand.

    Thanks full throttle, they do have a good Rep but would still prefer someone local, would be a different story if mods were involved, but just looking more along maintenance

    I use West Racing Motor Development - Tim Slako. Wealth of knowledge, his experience is second to none, has a great team and he will not sell you something you do not need. They are also the distributor for Redline oils.

    Heard plenty of good things about Street built. Also Terry at MCE.

    But in all honesty, a 30-60 minutes drive will be long forgotten with a good result. Pick a bad tuner and you'll spend more time running around trying to get it fixed or left with a sour taste in your mouth from bad service and a car that drives like a pig

    Jeff at Streetbuilt did my brakes last year which I was very happy with, he seems to specialise more in the turbo market, hence why I haven't jump at using him for the tunning.

    It's not so much the drive to/from, but more that the car's going to need to be left there for ??

    Yes, this is true. Likely overnight if its a full tune so I get that part of it but really no different if it was getting major work on it and had to be left there. I have always used WA Perf though, even when I lived NoR.

    Pop in, have a chat with the guys at MCE and see what you think. I've only been in there once when I lived up that way and they seemed like a good bunch, plenty of knowledge.

    I used Active Automotives....had a larger crank blower pulley fitted and a tune done. Dropped off in the morning and picked up in the afternoon
