4×4 Vehicle Servicing
Is your vehicle under a new vehicle warranty? No problem, we will follow the service schedule to the letter using genuine parts, stamp your service book, save you money and not affect your new vehicle warranty.
If your vehicle is higher in kilometres you may no longer be relying on your service book, in which case our in house servicing routine will keep your 4WD safe and reliable.
Diesel Performance Upgrades
All diesel upgrades are custom tuned on our in-house hub dyno. Expect power and torque gains of between 25% – 30% depending on the condition of your engine and associated components.
Prior to commencement of any performance upgrade our tuner will chat with you regarding what goals you are looking to achieve. You may be considering modifications to the intake, turbo or exhaust system and these should always be completed prior to your performance upgrade, we are happy to recommend the appropriate products and install them for you. Our preferred method for performance upgrade is custom tuning as this ensures the tune is perfect for the characteristics of your particular engine.
Our tuner will perform a dyno run before and after tuning with performance figures recorded for both instances. The before and after figures are presented to you by way of a graph certificate which is testament to our tuner’s mastery in diesel performance upgrading.

To get the maximum life out of your expensive tyres you need to be sure your wheel alignment is set correctly. A simple check and toe in adjustment that is all too common place these days will see you shopping for new tyres again way too soon. Camber and Caster settings need to be checked and corrected when needed, particularly if the vehicle ride height has been altered. If your vehicle requires shim corrections to bring these settings back to specification that can be time consuming and as such is often avoided by wheel aligners. For this very reason we perform our own wheel alignments on site to ensure your four wheel drive wheel alignment is perfect.
