can i know how long ago was this please?They're a popular choice but I'm sorry to say I can't recommend them. In short they were rude to me (made me wait hours with no reason etc), and more importantly didn't tell the truth about their tune. I asked if the dyno run would generate DTL's: they said it wouldn't, but it did. That is because they pull the ABS fuse to force the car into FWD mode. I asked if the tune would be detectable (my car was fully stock) and they said it would be undetectable, but in fact all their tunes are obvious. Here's why: the tune enables the US-style 'not ready for emissions test' 7 flashes of the Check Engine light, so its obvious the car has been fiddled with. I asked if that 'feature' could be disabled but never got a response. The tune gave me stock power levels only, when I asked why, was told 'bad fuel', but I had filled with fresh BP 98 that morning. No resolution was offered.
Having said all that, the car boosts to 1.5 bar from much lower in the rev range so the torque in the mid range is much improved.
No. I have a long term plan to re-do the leaking head gasket, so will tune again after that.sorry you got bad experience, did you go anywhere else?
Thomastown is 2 hours from me , UPG is 30 mins from me.Get a Cobb access port and get a custom tune.
see Leo at Coco eurotech in Thomastown.
For clarity is the car is going to Ford with the aftermarket map on it? If you have any warranty I would be returning that to stock map beforehand, if not and for possibly loose things I would recommend going over everything yourself as well. If you can return to stock is there any difference?Update :
So went in got the car tuned with these guys and had really good gains, but driving home started making lots of hissing and whooshing noise.
I believe the PCV line attaching to the intake is not functioning properly, also getting boost loss, booked a appointment with dealership to troubleshoot for me.
Did call up these guys and mentioned i was having issues but they didnt seem to be interested in helping at all, telling me boost gauge isnt correct and all the noises are fine. But now i have Engine Service message pop up , So clearly something isnt right and kinda upset and disappointed that i was told everything is fine and its a waste of time bringing car in for them to check.
Now cant drive car til next week . Hopefully its just PCV connection and loose clamps.
Spoke with the dealer, told them there is aftermarket parts on the car, they will do the troubleshooting for me but i do have to pay for assessment.I agree on the factory tune being on it before it goes to Fraud.
If not they can and probably will just say nope, that's been fiddled with, see ya later, its your fault and problem.
Yeah when i started driving home i could hear loud hiss/whoosh sound, but because i was in traffic i couldnt do any hard pulls. I did a little pull and it seems something came lose and started whooshing even more, then on car start up there is small knocking sound as well.Somethings not right. Surely that problem would have been picked up during a dyno tuning session rather than the drive home?
I just really hope its lose clamps and nothing more.

I will go down under the car tomorrow morning again and check all the clamps again. So stressed out right now.
