Hi There,

I was hoping someone could check some figure & prices I was quoted by AutoTech (Hume ACT)
Went in to AutoTecH - If I got a custom tune, Flash tune and Dyno test tuning.

Everything below is what I was told they could achive

Would I go from >>>

195kws now (Ive been told 15 - 20 % more power/performance/KWs)
15% - 20 %............??????? Correct me If I'm wrong that is alot and you would notice the change big time

So >>>

195kws + 15% = 225kws
195kws + 20% = 234Kws

Now the Part that I liked and please tell if the Guys from AutoTecH (Hume ACT) are full of S*&T

Autotech states that even better Torque performance can be achived.
Plus they said that the torque range would be from and right though the
rev range 1000rpm - 6500rpm So they stated 20% - 25 % more Torque increase 20-25 ..??!! He said with the Custom Tuning it could be pushed though the redline (in other words redline 5500, he says 6500 would be safe) I hate bee=ning bulls*&^ed And I smell a rat figures == >>
391NM (now)+ 20%= 470NM Increase
391NM + 25%= 488NM

Now remembering that he stated that this is just a Flash tune, Custom Tune, Dyno Testing/Tuning
Just the Flash $680 >>> please read on .........

Cost = $1,955 - $2195, he said there were a number of low cost parts that can be added and removed very easily (old ones put back for warranty) So If I was serious He could give me a better idea of full cost, Fair enough you could spend 2k - or 20 k

He told me he would put it back to factory settings for a very small fee If I needed to claim warranty. Not on his work. His work is cover and repaired for free, Lifetime warrenty on all changes they make...??? again...??

Help, sounds to good to be

If you want to see how much proof is in the pudding go and talk to these guys,

Both are in the ACT, both do tuning for fords and have done for a while, between Gentech and Autotek, pick the one you are most comfortable with and go from there. In my experience, if it sounds like s**t... good chance it is. I have heard wildly varying reports about BA, BF and FG results.

Dynos are only tuning equiptment that can give a picture of how the power ramps on.A big dyno figure does not always translate into a streetable car either.




I have a car.
