Looking for a diesel tuning expert around Melb - Vic.
Have a tired old Toyota HJ61 Turbo that needs a good tune, more power etc. Can anyone recommend someone around the Camberwell area.
The Berrima boys would be great, but too bloody far!!

If anyone says Rankins diesel, then ignore everythign they ever say again.

He quoted me $2000-3000 to do my injectors and pump... They are in Bayswater. Quoted a mate with a surf MORE!!!

Hiflo are in Vietnavale I mean Springvale, they are supposed to be VERY GOOD with diesel work.

I'm not a Melbournian but travelled there a few years ago to have some work done on my turbo diesel 1995 Discovery. Details below, highly recommended (for this one job which was a power boost and tune up).

Regarding the comment posted about Rankin Diesel -
I have used Rankin for several years and have ALWAYS found them to professional AND helpful. They may be a bit more expensive than some but I am a strong believer in the principle that you get what you pay for.
(My last 4WD was an 80 Series diesel with an ARB-fitted Safari turbo. It ran like a dog until Geoff Rankin fixed it up. After five years with the 80, I now have a 100 TD which has just had its second dealer service. Next service it goes to Rankin. My son has an 86 HiLux with a transplanted 2.4TD - he also takes it to Rankin.)

You get what you pay for.. See the oil thread...

But back to Rankins.. They are not just "a bit more"... For what I wanted doing, they were $1000+ more.. How can you justify that? I can do a lot with $1000!

The theory works I agree, SOMETIMES, but not everytime. In this case, Ive spoken to those in our club in the know and all but one bloke, all say the same thing. Your the second happy customer they have that I know of.

Bloke I 4b with works for ARB in Kilsyth. As he says:
" If you cant say anything good about someone, say nothing"...
