so made the 8hour round trip to tuning developments today and i cant thank the blokes enough! From the second i got there there was a great friendly service, mike give me and my girlfriend a lift into town whilst they done the work and then picked us up after, they fitted a new fuel pump sorted a few things with the wastegate waterlines and fpr as well as mapping it to 220 at 1bar on a td04 all for a really good price to what i was quoted everywhere else!
Thanks again lads was nice meeting you and will more than likely see me again! :)
Highly recomend you take your car there!

Cheers

Took a 500 mile round trip here when I had my Glanza to get a few bits fitted and for it to be mapped.

I had a great time, felt confident that the guys knew what they were doing and the car was absolutely spot on. Ran perfectly then and is still running perfectly now (a few years on!)

Top service from you chaps, and if the journey wasn't quite so long I'd have definitely returned again.

... Maybe I will one day, who knows?! ;)

Early start for me today, woke up at half 4 to leave the house at 5 to make the 250 mile trip down to tuning developments. When I arrived Mike greeted me with a friendly handshake and a quick conversation to get some background info on the car. After signing a form he gave me and my 2 mates a lift into town as what can only be described as the ultimate sleeper (we were pretty impressed with it). Had some breakfast did some shopping then had a brew and within 3-4 hours I had a call to say the emanage had been fitted and mapped and that the car was ready. Mike then came back and picked us all up which is really good of him, you don't get service like that at many places. Got back had a look at the graphs and it had made 221.8BHP at 1bar on 95 ron fuel so I was very happy and paid him the very reasonable price that he is offering just now (which I would recommend anyone to take him up on) and got my graphs & keys. Overall I was very happy, mike is a top guy to deal with really nice genuine guy, feels just like it's your mate your going to see even put up with the state of my very dirty car and all the rough edges that still need tidied up haha.

Anyway down to the performance. Before it went it was running 0.5 bar on a RRFPR and FCD and setup on a wideband and at the time I felt it was pretty quick and a decent upgrade over the CT9 even at 0.5 bar. The car pulled ok although it was fairly hesitant at low RPM and had a couple of small flat spots and also a slight blip on idle. After mapping all this was gone car runs like new and feels amazing to drive, it is far far smoother and pulls like mad in every gear even 5th I can't believe the difference it has made, so much faster and torquier. The power delivery is perfect and boost comes in really nice, none of the old harsh spikes that used to break traction. It gets to full boost boost after 4k rpm and hold it perfectly all the way to the redline. It really just feels like a new car to drive I had a grin from ear to ear driving it home, can't thank Mike and Nick enough and I would whole heartedly recommend anyone to take there car there, I know mine will definitely be back.

Great service, thanks.

Mike is definitely the tits.... first person on here that had no problem shipping stuff to Trinidad for me. At first i thought a head gasket was small may be thats why but nope he was willing to sell me the works. Mad loves for this guy. Tuning developments takes the win in my eyes and is definitely going places with mikey at the helm. I now know where to get all my parts from.... and oh did i mention that shipping is next to nothing lol :D :clapping: :thumbsup:

Made the long journey up towards Warrington on friday staying in a premier inn at Stafford friday night before having the EManage Blue fitted and Mapped on saturday at Tuning Developments. Definitely worth the journey to have your car in good hands!

Had a good chat with the guys and then Mike gave me and the mrs a lift into Warrington. It was nice talk people that share a common interest and know what they are talking about!

I was never expecting big power, as i'm only running CT9 turbo but knew that i had a good spec behind me, so hoped for about 190bhp. I was gobsmacked when Mike told me it made 214.9bhp at 1bar and 202lb.ft. and what a transformation on the road! Overtaking from low rpm has now become bloody easy with the huge increase in low end power and torque and further up the rev range the V really fucking shifts!

Massive thank you to the Tuning Developments crew, highly recommended!

Roll on the summer!

Toby.

A massive thank you too mike @ tuning developments. Ordered a whiteline rear adjustable anti roll bar yesterday at around 12.45 and it arrived on my doorstep this afternoon. He even price matched for me as I found one cheaper online. Spot on service as always guys. Highly recommended. Cheers!

Met Nick and Mike for the first time and I can say that I would feel very happy and comfortable having them work on my car in the future. Fantastic work that these guys do down there... Recommended to anyone.

Just to say a huge thank you to mike and nick for all the time effort advice and work they did on my 82 after it lost its oil,
It was nice to talk to a tuner who had time to listen advise on the best options.
So after giving them the go ahead for a stage 1 build i kept adding bits to the build and ended up with a stage2 built motor.
Then went for a td04 hybrid and remap afterwards,
Really cant thank these guys enough for all the effort they put in :)

Keep up the awesome work guys

Oh and the hybrid is amazing bit of kit deffo recomend going for it people

Been to Tuning Developments this morning to get a new Emanage Blue fitted and mapped on my N\A 4EFE in preparation of fitting a Hybrid CT9 to it.

The lads also fitted me a 3bar MAP sensor and I came away with a few more goodies to fit at a later date.

Nick managed to get 98bhp at the flywheel out of the car in N\A form today which surprised me as I had guessed it would make about 85bhp and the car is now running really smooth and pulls like a train.

Great couple of guys, made me feel welcome and did a great job with the car.

I'll defo be using them again.

Went to TD on Saturday to get a emanage fitted and mapped to 1 bar of boost. What can I say, probably the best service I have ever received. Mike was full of conversation while Nick got on with the work! Work was complete in a matter of hours and the way the car drives now is amazing. Absolute weapon and is working perfectly :)

Would recommend TD to anyone, fantastic work and fantastic customer service!
