From my side Autotrix is the place to GO TO DYNO YOUR 20V TURBO.

Re: Autotrix vs Speedshop

Vino's a staight forward person and he will call a spade a spade and doesnt butter up things lol.
But if you have an issue and tell him he listens,the answer you'll get won't be buttered up as thats not his style like i said he will call a spade a spade,the way forward from there is up to the owner.

Vino tunes for a Toyota Rally team,SA drift cars from local and Jhb. ( Driffters from Jhb have flown him up to Jhb to tune their drift cars)

What im trying to say is,these guys trust his tuning and judgement and they compete at NATIONAL LEVELS, we can learn from them as they could have chosen anyone in SA to tune their car and they choose Vino............... do the maths guys  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/cool

You wrong in the above BOLD text. he fails to listen(He didnt listen to me, he was rude and faulty), yes he listens to you cause you have a fast car or a good build(I have seen him call up guys that have fast cars only), but if you are a average person like me with a twincam motor, he did bull shit me by far, and please let me say something, all the above does not mean he can get every car right, he failed with mine and many other peoples cars. no politics but just my event of working with him,

Re: Autotrix vs Speedshop

Sorry to hear dat bro , you shouldn't hav even let him tune the car if he treated you badly coz you paying him hes not paying  you , don't get some tuners they act lyk they doing you a favour lol. I'm hapy to hear your car is flyn after the speedshop map bru but each tuner has there bad days mayb was just unluky with vino , every tuner is good in their own way gues it just comes down to who you get along with.

Re: Autotrix vs Speedshop

../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/blink eish that is strange, "tuners" get annoyed when they advise you on items and guys go and do their own things, I havent seen this happen myself at autotrix and can agree with Vk's comment.
My car is not tuned nor have I spent any money @ autotrixs besides a dyno day or two and the guys there are always helping one and other out and always ready to advise. Dont know why you were treated differently.

Xploding what was wrong with your car?

I agree with you 100% , he was not the tuner for me., but he did my whole conversion so had to do it with him. im cool with it, cause i won with speedshop and all i wanted was my car to run smoothly ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/smile

Re: Autotrix vs Speedshop

Hey vees you know me, im not a loud mouth and never looked for a fight, but im going to show yourl all how much he quoted me and then charged me at the end, and you tell me why shouldnt you be unhappy.
Things wrong the car:
1. Water pipes where connected wong- caused the car to heat up when ever i pulled a gear - resulted in them cutting my thermostat(they charged me for a cut one) - ran my fan on all the time (packed up after a month or so)
2. Tuned my car without my induction kit(was in the boot)
3. Left my tps wire naked and twisted- resulted in one cord coming lose and car not idling a few months after
4. They fitted a internal fuel pump - resulted in my fuel gauge being jumpy and giving false readings.
5. Car never use to ilde when hot
6. after pulling the car and changing gear car use to pause then pull
MAIN reason - my car use to run with a 1.4 polo vivo for a twincam ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/sad
And i was still nice to him and explained everything but he got rude cause i use to come back every week about how poor the car was.
i solved all the piping issues, took it to speed shop - tuned it and car was a dream-

As you say above, i was unlucky - but i still do believe hes a good tuner but he must just treat everyone fair even if they got slow cars, oh ya hes a good chap to chat to when you on hes good side
