Car Tuning Equipment

Use Only The Best Car Tuning Equipment

Car tuning means different things to different people.  To some, it implies the improvement of performance and to other, just the readjustment of a badly running engine.  Yet other people who prioritise fuel economy would consider a car tuned well if the fuel consumption has been optimised.  Aside from the actual mechanic, the idea most people have about car tuning equipment probably revolves around the dynamometer.

The dynamometer is a contentious piece of car tuning equipment and this state of affairs can be blamed mostly on poor quality equipment and unqualified (or dishonest) operators.  Most people would not even have known about this piece of equipment, had it not been for the controversial “dyno tune”.  Controversial, because all too often a dyno tune is simply a psychological exercise designed to extract money from people.  Incompetent operators often do not know how to use the machine and unscrupulous ones adjust it to show an improvement in power where there is none.

Dastek has been designing and building its own chassis dynamometers for many years, following their experience with the sub-standard equipment for sale.  Initially, they had intended to replace their old dynamometer with one they had designed and built themselves, but this machine’s quality, consistency and sensitivity became evident and soon, people were queueing for it.  Now, they cannot keep up with supplying their chassis dynamometer to the South African tuning industry.

Besides Dastek dynamometers, the Unichip and other derivatives of the piggyback computer that had made Unichip famous are prime examples of the state-of-the-art car tuning equipment available today.  The Unichip adapts your vehicle’s ECU settings to the ideal for your engine, aiding both power and economy.  In conjunction with a professional dyno tune, most owners get a worthwhile improvement in engine performance and fuel consumption.  For more information, contact us today.
