hey all got me car running as best as I can with the mail order tune.
its not ideal, but it drives fine. just doesn't idle properly and feels a bit sluggish for what it is.

the motors 10.5 comp with a crow 4761 cam. motor had a freshenup a few years ago.
I realise mail orders cant tune idealy, I just needed my car drivable for a while.

I work directly across the road from HPF but ive heard theyre overpriced, just a name and don't care about older cars really.
cars a vs 304. after someone who REALLY knows there stuff. ive had a lot of clueless mechanics so far :hmmm:
if anyones had good experiences with there worked 304s getting tuned please share :rofl2:

I know it's a fair way to travel but only one place I would take a 304 to be tuned, go and see Tim @ Electronic Automotive in Epping.

Mate go see Joel at 4B Fabrications in Carrum downs. Home - 4B Fabrications & Performance Tuning - 03 9708 2232.

He Tuned my Supercharged VS GTS and Id never go anywhere else. It's actually going back in this august for a Service. I went to EA in epping years ago and it was so disappointing at the lack of improvement they managed to get and still charged me $1100. Then blamed the exhaust and 'oh you need to changed the manifold if you want more power' Found Joel at 4B Fab a while after that and His knowledge of tuning just blew me away. Booked car in and as soon as I got it back. MASSIVE difference. And cost half the price. Since then Ive never taken it anywhere else.

MPW in cranbourne specialise in LS motors but seem to do a lot of other cars. I've seen them tune stuff from your cars era. You can look them up on facebook.

+1 on the epping place . ive been there a few times he is always busy and ive seen them do alot of older motors . they're pricey but i heard they do a good job . other than them is rajab racing in campbellfield cant go wrong with them either . they have a long reputation of doing awesome work .

Just crazy when you live in a town like Melbourne and won't drive 60km to a good tuner for your car while your area is surrounded with average shops. May wanna try Mikes Dyno/ The 308 shop in Dandy. He does alot of 5L builds n tunes on the standard delco ecu too

Another perfectly good ECU put in the too hard basket because they simply don't know what they're doing. Stick with the Delco and find a better tuner.

+1

Nothing wrong with the normal ECU. Just go to a tuner that knows what they are doing...

Mines doing 370+RWKW. Stock ECU.
