reputable engine (I6) tuners in sydney?

basically, i'm after someone who specialises in ford's I6 engines, like jim mock, but local.

i'm looking at spending about $4000-4500 on the engine soon, and i want to get as much power as possible. turbo/supercharger is not an option at this stage.

so i'm open to suggestions! btw, i'm not going to do anything myself. i just want to drive in, hand over the keys and money and pick up the car when it's done.

I used ToySport in Penrith to install my blower & they did a good job.

I know EB ON NOS recently used Col Parry automotive in Penrith & got some very good results.

Don't know of any ford specialist tho.

We fitted the cam etc at home..The dyno was only used for reference purposes..No tuning...

nah, i'm not but it's still easier to insure a stock (looking) six than a bog stock eight.

plus, i want a hot six.

adviliax mortus I agree with you. They aren't going to get any franchised dealers as of yet. BUt i guess in the future they will.
Its like DOUBLE DOH!!!! That was my thoughs too.. Jim Mock but tooo far away. But I guess the power gain is around the same and cheaper than getting her BLOWN. But they will be busy in 4 weeks time (Opening). I spoke to him and he said that there are heaps of Sydney people calling him about the mods. The best thing is that the car is in the shop from 0830 to 1730.
Did you get the MPEG files?? The AU doing a burn out?

Yeah im really keen on the Jim Mock tuning + cam.

I like the 135 rwKw package. Nice one. I will get it cheaper as i already have exhaust, filter + cold air.

Who else has spoken to them?
