The Mainline Pro-Hub dyno tuning utilises a specialised dyno system for accurate measurement and analysis of engine performance, enabling fine-tuning to optimise power delivery and overall engine performance.
Yes, Oztrack can increase the power and torque of your VT-VF V8 engine through various power upgrade packages tailored for different models, such as OZ340, OZ380, OZ500, and OZ540.
Custom tuning involves optimizing engine control parameters to enhance performance, drivability, and specific requirements.
Remote tuning allows tuning to be done remotely without the need to bring the vehicle to the workshop.
When we tune a LS V8 or VZ-VF V6 Commodore the fuel table is made accurate and when a car is at low loads when driven gently it is in a different part of the map than when its at full throttle. So the two aspects are independent of each other, no extra full throttle power can be given with a fuel economy tune and little if any extra fuel economy can be given above the way that we already tune the cars.
We tune the LS V8 within safe limits and when it leaves us it certainly will not have any knock apparent that could damage your engine and the air fuel ratios are in the right range. The tune is also setup so that it cannot change, so if it does start knocking or it is too lean something has changed. The car needs to stay on the fuel it was tuned with e.g. if tuned on 98 keep using 98 not 95 or 91.
Get it tweaked and checked if this happens because over time things will deteriorate on the car and the engine can start to misbehave. We see a myriad of slowly appearing problems eg fuel pumps rusting out, injectors getting dirty, catalytic converters blocking, spark plugs increasing in gap, spark plug leads perishing, engine oil being induced etc.
The only way the car can lose its tune is if it intentionally wiped by another tuner using EFILive or HPTuners or ourselves. Taking the battery lead off resets the system but does nothing to the tune settings.
When it comes to engine tuning, even within the same model, there can be significant variations in power, even among cars with identical modifications. Interestingly, vehicles that have been gently driven and have lower mileage tend to show the least power gains.
Here are some noticeable improvements you can expect:
While we could share the highest dyno numbers we’ve achieved, it’s important to note that the average power gains are often around 20 rwkw lower. We don’t typically perform before-and-after testing due to the time it consumes and the fact that the engine would be quite warm after the initial testing. Additionally, we’ve observed instances of competitors manipulating “before” results to make their “after” results appear more impressive. As a result, we’ve chosen not to engage in this practice to maintain fairness.
While power gains can vary, we’ve seen some remarkable outcomes:
Yes we can tune all V6 Commodores now from Alloytec VZ through to the current VF LFX V6.
