FAQ's
What if i don't have the stock base tune/image?
No need to Stress, I have you covered! I have a large database of Stock base images/ROM's

Once the ECU has been Unbricked/Unlocked, will it need re syncing with the Immobilizer?
No, the Immobilizer codes are not affected during this process and the ECU will function when returned to the original car.

Can you Unbrick my ECU with a modified tune file?

Great Question BBB for club Lib members I offer a special club discount of $100 off the cost of Tuning.

Each car and requirements are different, all final tuning costs have this factored in especially location and travel allowances.

For anyone looking to have their car tuned please do not hesitate to send a PM via Facebook to lock in price quotation. 8)

Pm sent!
I finally got to the source of my unstable fuel trims: the main pcv pipe before the pcv valve was loose-ish.
When new this pipe is interference fit for easy pcv removal.

At 330kkm it’s hard and leaks, so I used a couple of Norma screw clamps to seal the join at each end: no more blowing smoke at high rpm and on startup and on boost, also long term fuel trim is well within +/-5%.

Just need a fresh clutch & stock weight flywheel and then it will be ready for a touch up ;)
