Engine Tuning & Maintenance

Hey Tim. The work you did on my 79 series is great. The increase in power and torque is fantastic. Seamless and smooth delivery across a nice wide band from 1,000 RPM in fifth with no holes or flat spots. You've made a new car heaps better to drive. Thanks. - Peter Rowley

Is your car using too much fuel?
Engine running rough - or noisy?
Looking to get better power and economy out of your 4x4, tractors, trucks or machinery?

You need an engine tune up.

Why does tuning my engine make such a difference?

A dirty fuel injection system in both petrol and diesel engines or worn spark plugs in petrol engines can dramatically reduce your engines power and economy, we can service your fuel system on the car with our BG Products specialty tooling and chemicals in both petrol and diesel powered engines.

Carbon build up in your air intake system can drag down your engine’s performance – cleaning out your EGR system and intake manifold with our professional BG Products on car carbon cleaning system will make a huge difference to both power and fuel economy!

Tuning and performance modifications can boost your engine’s performance and drivability. We can do this with ECU remapping.

What is ECU Remapping?

The ECU (Engine Control Unit) of a vehicle controls how the engine management system works. ECU  remapping reflashes the standard software on the ECU with custom tuned software. This new software is programmed to optimise a vehicle’s overall performance - so it increases an engine’s power output, durability and fuel economy.

Case 1: Trouble getting up hills

A customer said he couldn't get his 79 series V8 cruiser up a hill near his house without dropping back to 80kph. So we did a custom ECU remap to it.

He went for a drive - and was doing 105 kph up the hill and still pulling. He said the difference was amazing! His scan gauge is showing massive fuel savings also.

Case 2: Just. Can’t. Pull.

A customer was having trouble pulling with his 79 series Cruiser. And his ride wasn’t as smooth as he’d like. So we tuned it.

Straight away the customer noticed that the ute had plenty more pulling power - and was heaps smoother to drive. He also noted on his scan gauge that the instant litres per 100km had dropped to single digits, which he had never seen before!
