Commodore Oil

The owner of this Commodore has done everything possible to have it running at peak performance. The booking was for a cold start tune and oil light issues. Moving from NSW to QLD meant a new tuner, mechanic etc. The owner has a fresh built top end and cam. Every invoice and service history was provided. The owner had previously even supplied his own high quality oil for the past mechanics to service it with. (Oil supplied was top end) We confirmed the ECU was unlocked prior to booking. On arrival, we found the ECU was locked. Understandably the owner was frustrated that his standard ECU had been locked unbeknown to him. Unlocked and cold start resolved the oil switch...

Colorado Big Boy Intercooler

Colorado Big Boy Intercooler, ECU Tune, Legendex, Diesel, Diesel Service, sunshine coast, Nambour, diesel exhausts

Colorado Big Boy Intercooler upgrade has been on the cards for some time for this Colorado.  Last in the Power Curve Performance work shop November 2016 from Ipswich.  November booking saw the Colorado in for a diesel performance ECU Tune.  The next upgrade on the dream list was the Lexendex Colorado Big Boy Intercooler.  Just prior to Christmas the standard factory Colorado Intercooler split and failed. Waiting to upgrade is an easy financial decision in the middle of summer with a damaged intercooler like this.  Although all legendex systems are self install compliant some variables occur.  The vehicle had the bull bar repaired and previously modified with a winch and some specific differences.   Installing new upgrades into a brand new vehicle is relatively...

Airbags

Air Bag, 4x4, Accessories, suspension, upgrade, Power Curve Performance

Air Bags are commonplace in most 4x4.  A must have accessory with suspension upgrades airbags allow you to fit a suspension kit that will ride level when towing or unloaded.  Often asked to install a lift with different levels.  This can create the nose or tail to sit up or down when unloaded.  Not only is this annoying to the eye and ride it is unsafe also. How do airbags work? Install airbags on your vehicle and you’ll be able to lift and level up a sagging rear end when towing caravans, boats, campervans and trailers or when carrying extra uneven loads. Airbags will give your vehicle the extra support needed in the suspension for more comfortable, economical and safer driving. Airbags...

Supercharged Kingswood

Supercharged Kingswood, Power Curve Performance, Sunshine Coast Dyno Tuning,

Corey booked his newly Supercharged Kingswood in for a service a few months prior to Christmas.  Corey has been bringing the Kingswood to us for the past few years.  Each time he upgrades or changes the engine in any way he has religiously and happily bought the Kingswood back to the team for its tune from Maryborough. Corey is the first customer in the shop and every time he is back down from Maryborough the team enjoy a chat and a catch up.  Corey was late for his appointment and we thought this was odd but given the travel, interruptions occur.  Unfortunately, we received a very distressed phone call from Corey.  The newly Supercharged Kingswood as it was towed through the roadworks and had...

The radiator after being tested had not failed however being in the summer weather and the current condition it is in driving 8 hrs home in the day is not recommended.  On inspection confirmation testing from the team at Nambour Radiator Works both teams and the customer decided on the outcome.  A new radiator, hoses, and thermostat for the 2001 Toyota Hilux.
