"The difference before and after is amazing. The cruiser is much more fun to drive and overtaking is effortless, not to mention better on fuel consumption. The Dyno results speak for themselves!" ( VDJ79R Land Cruiser)
"It's like awakening a sleeping giant! The first drive was every bit as exciting as driving my Cobra after you supercharged it. It is so much more responsive - I only use a fraction of the accelerator pedal in comparison to how it was before. SIMPLY FANTASTIC!!" (Ford F250)
"I took my 200 Series Land Cruiser in to get it tuned by South West Auto in Dunsborough as I wanted to increase its performance and efficiency. When I got the car back, it was like driving a different vehicle – very smooth, quick to take off and the fuel efficiency so far is noticeably better. I would recommend this to anyone considering a custom tune."
"A massive thank you to the guys at South West Auto for the ECU remap! My Nissan Patrol has never run so good - the new increased power and fuel economy is unbelievable. I would recommend this to anyone in a heart beat!"
"After taking delivery of a 2012 76 series Landcruiser I was keen to improve the performance. I discussed my plans with South West Automotive and beyond suspension upgrades we embarked on improving the performance at the rear wheels. After 3” exhaust upgrade, HPD intercooler and a Dominator Series 1 chip the performance went from 108 HP to 220.8HP and the torque was doubled. Fuel consumption was 13.9l/100km but performance was marred embarrassing amounts of sooty exhaust under acceleration. The onset power under acceleration was brutal but seemed to lack torque at low rpm. The chip was recently removed and South West Auto's remapped the engine management system and the changes have been remarkable.
Output at the rear wheels 241.5 HP! Low down torque has doubled and the torque curve has improved across the operating range. Fuel economy has improved from13.9l/100km to 11.5l/100km! On the road, there is less fuel injected rattle and the vehicle is easier to drive with smooth onset of power and better low down torque. I would strongly recommend you talk to South West Automotive if you wish to improve performance and fuel economy. You won’t regret it."
"I'm driving a 2013 Passat turbo diesel and the overall servicing is cheaper and more detailed then the local VW dealer. Add to that, the car had an upgraded chip previously installed by SW automotive and has power to burn but can also travel 1300 kms on a tank over long distances. Cant fault the overall service."
