The fatman can certainly build an engine.

Tuning is the key though.

Has anyone got a recent review on Rank Rotary for Weber Tuning? I used them for my corolla many years back, when they were near Moorabbin airport. They did great work and were reasonably priced.

I dropped in a few months back to get prices and sus them out about tuning my Extend Port S3 12a - Weber.
The boss was not the same guy i dealt with, and the young blokes in the car park bouncing a car off the rev limiter and giggling like little girls didnt really set a good impression.
I thought the pricing of $80/hr labour plus $120/hr Dyno time plus parts was a bit exxy.
The boss said they didnt really do much Weber tuning anymore, which i wasnt really sure how to take.

Is the new setup and crew still good with NA setups or should I keep looking. They would be convenient, but i dont mind travelling to Cranbourne or Dandenong if the guys out there are better.

Western Suburbs etc are not really convenient for me.

Thanks Mate. This place in seaford wouldnt be MK Automotive would it? I used them once or twice when they were in Moorabbin. I read on this forum that someone uses his dyno's to do their tuning.
