    Hi everyone


    Going to be getting the car tuned soon on hondata K pro, but I wasn't sure who to go to:Angry:. I'm thinking of trying ARTECH TUNING but wanted to know if you guys knew anyone else, or if any of you had been to them previously.


    also, what kind of power figures am i looking for with full exhaust system and cold air induction on a low mileage k20a2?


    any help appreciated.


    thanx in advance.

    Tdi north or Unit 8.


    Unit 8 are great lads, perhaps a touch cheaper/easier to get a slot than at Tdi. They are based in Darwen, Lancs and do an excellent job.


    Worth a look, although Tdi is closer.

    Im down south so I personally would take my car to CPL Racing in Kent, But If i was closer id go TDI North

    I would not use CPL..


    I have heard good things about TDi North and I have also heard good things about TDi South (based in Lakeside, Thurrock)..

    Oh, Whats wrong with CPL? Also can't find a website for TDi South

    What about TGM?


    Up here I use Henry Roy (aka The Kat), hes been tuning hondas for as long as I can remember, doesnt produce 'hyped forum BHP' figures and is well priced too.

    TDi South weblink as follows..

    Where CPL is concerned, I have heard of a number of horror stories which does not inspire me with the confidence to leave my car with them for any kind of work.

    tgm actually use tdi north for there tuning as they don't have the facilities. tom does all his own engine work and the trailor's the cars up to tdi for mapping. have heard good reviews about artech tuning also.

    Ian at Clockwise Motion is a master at K20 tuning and is based in Brum. He doesnt advertise that much as he doesnt need to, and most of these big power K20's run by tuning companies and race teams actually have their engines built by him. He built Drmikey's K22 which pushes out over 280bhp and a shed load of torque. For example, He has an engine dyno and an exhaust jig so can make the perfect exhaust manifold design from scratch etc etc
