1995 EF XR6 on Duel Fuel. Just wondering where I could take my car to tune it up to run dedicated gas in Melbourne. It very hard to find a place and ive asked a few friends but they got no idea.

Hopefully someone could point me in the right direction... i want the car tuned up for gas.. not a 50/50 tune.
What might be involved? Probably how much as well.

Cheers Guys

If you're out east, there's a place on Heatherdale rd that is quite good... They also use a Dyno for the tuning, although as far as I know they only use it to adjust mixtures rather than give out readings...
