Direction-Plus PreLine – how it works

Jump on any facebook group or forum and at some point, you will hear someone ask about an additional fuel filter.  Power Curve Performance requires a system that is also able to work alongside our engine performance upgrades.  Setting a standard of performance is not just a fast car it is a vehicle that consistently performs. For this reason, we use Direction-Plus PreLine - how it works and an explanation of the dual layer media that is at the heart of why it is so effective separating water.   In the early years of mechanics, a technician is educated about the components of diesel and its tendency to attract water.  Additionally, many Power Curve Performance clients are looking to upgrade or create reliability...

Ford Everest, ECU Tune, Diesel tune, Power Curve Performance, Sunshine Coast, Nambour, Mechanic

For Everest presented to the team for an ECU Tune.  The customer had been recommended by a friend who had their Ford Ranger ECU Tuned and loved the results. The question is often I know I need this but what will it do and what can I expect.  Most of us have heard of the ECU Tune and the basics that it will make your vehicle run better.  As this customer said why do I choose Power Curve Performance and what do you stand for? The best way I can describe this was presented to me half an hour earlier by an unhappy ECU Tune owner.  The out of state owner owns a 200 series Landcruiser and like the Ford Everest owner...

There are many modification options out there for the 2015 ZD30 CR Auto Nissan Patrol.  Fortunately, Power Curve Performance provide the Sunshine Coast with a one stop 4x4 centre.  We can provide it all from servicing, a vast range of suspension, exhausts, snorkels and performance upgrade packages. Enhancing power in a diesel is much more achievable than a petrol. For the below, we have upgraded the exhaust to a Legendex.

2016 3.2 Ford Ranger Manual

2016 3.2 Ford Ranger Manual

2016 3.2 Ford Ranger Manual perfect in nearly every way for a work ute.  Perfect beside the turbo lag.  The technology behind the old work ute is amazing the way the manual changes in comparison is just like driving an auto, bar the fact you need to change gears, they are so smooth.  The only lacking issue is the turbo lag. Tradies work ute getting to jobs on time and without frustration is of key importance.  The difference in arriving 5 minutes late to a job can mean the loss of a contract.  Frustration with the lag and lack of throttle response can easily be the difference between not making it on time. Many have had issues with the new Ford...

Nissan Navara D40 2″ Suspension

Nissan Navara D40 2" suspension

Finally, the local owner has himself a 4x4.  New owner of the Nissan Navara D40 2" Suspension was sick of his dream of being a 4x4 owner.  So he went out and purchased himself a D40. Not long into the own, he started to notice the rest of the 4x4 out there and that he potentially owned a family car and not a 4x4.  Best way to rectify this he felt was to lift it off the ground and upgrade the tyres so that he COULD take the D40 off road. Owner of the D40 lives in Burnside himself with his little family and after driving past the Power Curve Performance workshop and children attending the same school as Patrick and...
