Work Carried Out: Strip the heads of the Miller Cycle engine sent them to pro-engines to have a valve replaced. He put everything back together and then fixed the vac leak problems I had for no charge. Any mechanic who has worked on the Miller Cycle knows how much a pain in the arse it it...
Recommended Why?: Excellent work, honest. Fair prices and sticks to how much is quoted. Can be slow when busy but I have found this with all good mechanics. They are performance mechanics but are happy to do the smallest jobs but have the knowledge if you wanna go fast.

Contact Person:

17 Nile St

Phone Number: (07) 3393 1588

Work Carried Out: Regular Service x 2

Recommended Why?:
First time I put it in for a service and just for giggles they put it on the dyno and tuned her. No mods at that stage but felt brilliant, could really notice the change. Never had a service like it before.

Second time, they put her on the dyno again, this time with a K&N pod and lukey exhaust installed. Told me they got a few more ponies out of her and that I should be happy. I was!!!

They are very reasonably priced. In my opinion you would be hard pressed to find better.

Work Carried Out: Which car is the question - did my whole MX-6. total front end rebuild etc. Excellent.
But recently on the Astina Ba hardtop- correct it's massive camber problem with Camber kits and full front & rear alignment.

Recommended Why?: For me They are the best. They don't stuff you around, and prices are very reasonable. Some say expensive but IMO if your going to put into it a large amount of money into your suspension you want a decent alginment and not crap.
