As the saying goes, ‘there are Experts and there are Experts’. That saying has a very cynical theme because, as we have all experienced probably once or twice before, so many ‘experts’ are not really ‘expert’. You will certainly find this rings true when looking for a Diesel Tuning Expert.

In the past decade there has been a real increase in repair shops calling themselves Diesel Experts. I remember when we used to advertise it as a ‘Black Art’, only to have other shops even copy that. With a raft of ECU remapping, modules and chips being the only thing needed to tune a modern Diesel, you can start to see why there are shops calling themselves ‘Diesel Experts’. In reality though, when it comes to Diesel tuning, you need to have been around for as long as I have to at least seen the outcome of your Diesel tuning work. With over 30 years of Diesel tuning behind myself, I know what works and what doesn’t. One I learnt during this time though is that there is no connection between European tuning and Australian tuning conditions. This is where we have seen Diesel tuning go wrong for a multitude of tuning shops and products as they try to rely on tunes and tuning philosophies from countries unlike ours. Advertising heavily for 5 to 10 years adds only false credibility if the tune you had done is damaging your Diesel.

One thing is for sure, we have been developing tuning products and tuning Diesels, for more than 60 years. With 3 generations now tuning since 1956, it’s worth considering this level of experience as a benchmark the next time you are asking yourself, “How do I find a Real Diesel Expert”.
