Audi A6 2.0TDi 2013 tuned in Reading, Berkshire.

Whether it's an Audi, Vauxhall, BMW or Mercedes. We always carry out a health check to ensure the vehicles we work on are fit to be tuned. This Audi had around 74,000 Miles on the clock.

After a health check we advised on the two front tyres being on the tread wear bars and the rear tyres had minor cracks.

Other than this, the car was given a clean bill of health! We then tuned this Audi to 210BHP / 420NM. Gains of +33BHP / +70NM over standard format.

Vauxhall Astra VXR tuned in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.

Firstly, we did a full health check on this VXR to ensure everything was as it should be to ensure a smooth tuning process. During this we found the following:

- Faulty one valve on rocker cover
- Kinked actuator vacuum pipe
- Incorrect spark plugs fitted

We also found some other issues with the vehicle but only needed to advise on them. These included:

- Small blow from exhaust
- Front tyres low tread / cracking
- Coilpack plug damaged.

After this, the customer had some Deka 630cc injectors for us to fit. We replaced the one way valve, replaced the vacuum pipe on the actuator, changed the spark plugs for the correct items and then fitted the customers injectors.

We then tuned this VXR on the sport button as the customer requested. This made around 292BHP.

And that's the difference between an professional tuner with great service to a cheapo man with a laptop and basic downloaded maps! This very likely saved the owner serious headache and potentially points on licence or worse having a blow out and crashing! Top work as always Sean! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

David Henderson. The difference between the majority of tuners and SM. πŸ‘Œ

Any other supporting mods or just injectors

How long is the waiting list to see you guys atm? I have i LET swapped Astra h vxr with all stage 3 bolt on’s, a standard map and very cast pistons😳 Kinda feel like im driving a time bomb πŸ™ˆ

Vauxhall Astra VXR Tuned in Newport, Wales.

This VXR is now running 287BHP.

The coupe in the background is there for a reason too. We tuned this vehicle back in 2015 and whilst we were down in Wales the owner asked if we could data log it to ensure all was well. It ran exactly like the day it was tuned nearly 4 years before!

Can’t thank you enough Sean πŸ‘

Thanks for checking the coupe for me Sean... it shows it has good reliable power and is testament to your knowledge of mapping.... πŸ‘

Two stunning and well looked after cars, a credit to their owners

In all honesty Nik Davies it's probably running the same because it hasn't been out the garage for a year πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Vauxhall Corsa E VXR tuned on the rolling road.

We had to be careful of the stock MAF limits on this as the customer didn't upgrade to the larger 80MM MAF.

Joshua Silvester worth considering the MAF too?

Do you keep deleting my comment??

I have an Astra VXR 80mm MAF for sale currently πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Why 80mm maf upgrade, seen these tuned happily without the maf being done πŸ€” Did the customer have more mods done to it?

This VXR still had a stock intercooler which meant the figures struggled. As can be seen, the intake temps hit over 70c on a power run!

Volvo V40 2.0 Tuned in Wokingham, Berkshire.

This Volvo used the very latest Denso ECU which needed to be unlocked on the bench so we could program it via the OBD socket. We jacked the vehicle up and removed the front wheel. Then removed the wheel arch liner so we could get access to the ECU. Unlocking this ECU was very simple with our specialist tools with no need to open the ECU case at all.

This Volvo is now running: 235BHP / 470NM. Gains of +45BHP / +50NM.

BMW 335D X Drive tuned in Stockton On Tees.

We love tuning these BMW's. They always perform so much better once tuned. Gaining nearly 70BHP & 100NM over stock coupled with 4WD they really are a wolf in sheep's clothing!

Looks like pace innercooler bit crap

Top work yesterday Sean thank you, completely different car to drive now. Will look into the new intercooler, but as Lewis said do t really want to lose the a/c set up due to losing the originality of the car ... but will see what’s best

What mods please

Ian Hare if his is stage 3 hitting 300 then whats yours?

What mods is this using please

Ken Riley 😍

Aidan Gillingham

Chris Goodliffe

Arent these 276bhp stock?

Stage 3 seems an awful lot of upgrading for what seems like not much power upgrade, 20% admittedly from 240 to 300, usually quite expensive right?

Try putting all that power on the road the chassis not the best on those .

Isn’t the torque a bit low? My DS VXR had more torque at stage 2

You can get more bhp out of a Saab b204 with less work lol

For what’s been done to it it’s done really well and feels completely different now pulls a lot harder.

Miss this beast, enjoy mate 😈

What would u expect with same mods plus a k06 with standard internals??
