I Dont know Eurotech but I take my car to Andy Kuc (Pro Automotive) He's an excellent mechanic and he knows what he is doing when it comes to VLT's and performance/race cars. Take your VLCT to him. Oh and he also has a dyno.

Pro Automotive or Howel Automotive (Main Rd Moonah) are usually the best to goto. Howel is generally expensive though

ok guys, i took the car to griffiths automotive and i have been happy so far. the car has had some 'dodgey guess work tuning' done 2 the motor (running rich, and the fuel regulator has had the hammer n socket trick done 2 it) wich is making it run a bit boggy. david griffiths told me he could get it all fixed up and dyno tuned for about $400 to fix this problem. i understand a dyno is a specialized peice of equipment but this seems like an awful lot of $$$ for a tune up!? am i right in thinking i should talk to pro automotive before giving david griffith the go ahead?

the reason he has told u so much is because with vl's it could take forever to find the problem, dyno itself is usually $150 to use straight up.

Still low on funds hey, I shouldn't expect to see 19's on your calais anytime soon then?
I haven't had anyone ring, lot's of people looking at it when I'm parked in the streets.
Like you know though, I'm in no rush. I'm catching up with Scottie B this weekend hopefully.
Going out this weekend? If so let me know, I'll have a beer with ya!

Hey Andy,
saw your CT at uni the other day. Your calais isn't really that low, but the off-set of those wheels aren't great for a VL. Get yourself some 19's

sleeper

just adding to the conversation before, Kutz (pro automotive) and dave(griffo's) are the ONLY guys to take your vl's to fellas. My calais is sitting at griffo's for some bits and pieces and not only is he a great mechanic but he is easy to talk to!!!!
