    Some awesome vehicles through the branches.

    Brand new kess than 500km on the clock Triton straight from the dealer.
    This one got an awesome Stage 1+ with small tweaks for towing

    A ranger 2.2 manual, also a towing map.

    And what can I say, the Defender 2.4 we know so well in for a stage 1. Monster power in third and smooth power in 6 cruising

    Hi Benson

    Your Pta branch did a stage 1 on my Pajero Sport a while back. Very happy with result so far.

    What is a Stage 1+ and how does it differ from normal Stage 1 and what tweak do you do for towing?

    Cheers

    Stage 1+ is a little more power. And the for towing we adjust the torque to accommodate assist more lowdown.

    So, die span het vandag by my kom kuierů

    2015 D4D en 2020 2.4 auto is Stage1+ gedoen.

    Het gaan ry met albei na die aanpassings en is daar drastiese verskil in albei voertuie tov kraglewering en daai bleddie 2.4 se autoboks wat nou 100 keer beter is.

    Sal oor tyd terug voer gee soos ek die bakkies ry.

    Groot dankie aan die span wat my bitter gerus gestel het, dankie vir julle vriendelikheid en professionalisme, was lekker om julle by my huis te hŕ.

    Sort out your Merc/VW/BMW/Audi's Adblue / DPF before it either leaves you stranded or with a hefty workshop bill...
    ML 350Cdi DPF was no able regen. This lmited this car to 80km/h
    Audi Q5 2.0tdi. Adblue pump gave up out of the blue, no start contact workshop.

    And then Johan's pristine Hilux's, was great meeting you :-) and we really looking forward to your feedback.

    I am sure it has been mentioned in this thread before but I can no longer do a search on a specific thread so apologies in advance

    My Isuzu 3.0 lx previous model is still under warranty but I need a bit more oomf when towing. What numbers can I expect from a stage 1 or stage 1+?

    Thanks

    Howzit, awesome vehicle to work on and even more amazing feedback from our customers on these, your looking at 25kW and 100Nm on these.

    I have a friend with a 4.8 Nissan Patrol (Petrol of course). He is a bit worried about fuel consumption. He does not drive it hard (trying to conserve fuel), he does tow a largish boat sometimes. In daily use, it is heavier than most comparable 4800 Patrols.

    Malcolm, we all know that tuning TB's ends in tears.

    He already has spoken to your guy in Midrand, and was advised not to go that route.

    Hi Benson,

    I've seen lots of positive results posted with P-series tuning. Curious to find out if you have done any work on the P-Series limited yet? I'm considering getting mine done, could you PM me pricing for the Stage 1 and Stage 1+. I'm based in the east rand

    And a tiguan with 182000km on the clock. EGR and DPF started acting up.
    Was removed, blanked! Bypassed and software was updated.

    Completely transformed and extremely happy client. Click image for larger version.

    Sometimes we get to play a little.
    Porsche Cayenne 3.0l Tdi CAS motor.
    Stage 2 with DPF and EGR delete, downpipe to follow shortly.
    55kW and 120Nm gains and a gearbox to match!

    Amazing changes to responsiveness and OH woW I always get surprised by the power on these 3.0l's!
