Ride: 2006 BF Ford Falcon Magnet Ute

Location: Mudgee
NSW, Australia

I was thinking of getting my 06 BF xr6 Magnet Ute custom tuned to get more out of the extractors, exhaust and cold air intake but I'm not too sure where to get it tuned at...
ACM Engines and Dyno in Bathurst is the closest to where I live so if anyone has had any previous dealings with them that would be great but if not, any other recommendations?

Cheers

welcome to fordmods! Good looking ute you have there.

No idea about the Bathurst mob, but for starters you should consider/research if you actually need a tune with those mods. Might make SFA difference.

Option 1, Look around - talk to ppl in the automotive industry. I think there maybe some guys in Goulburn who do tuning as well.

Option 2, Maybe take it down to one of the Sydney boys who are used to them?

Option 3, SCT Tuner (I think you still need a tuner to tune the SCT Chip)

Option 4, Look out for T.I.Performance (http://www.tiperformance.com.au). - If they do a chip to suit BA/BF this would be your cheapest and most convenient option.


btw, if you are looking for something to spend your money on maybe remove the tonneau hold down tie thingys. You would have to check up, but I think they drill them out then replace with colour coded plugs. Would make it look a lot neater.

You can't chip a BA/BF/FG PCM. You use SCT XCal 3 or similar device and you need a tuner.
