Frequently Asked Questions about our Cairns car tuning
1. What vehicles do we cover?

Most vehicles manufactured after 1998 can benefit from this tuning service. Contact us to find out if your vehicle is covered – 07 4031 7061

2. Do I receive warranty on an MCTA Tune to my vehicle?

Yes, we guarantee quality service and a lifetime warranty on any modifications made to your vehicle. How good is that?

3. Does removing the DPF mean a car would no longer pass the emissions standards that applied when new?

No. Lower ‘Euro 5’ exhaust emissions standards will be imposed for all new cars in Australia from 2013 and further tightened to ‘Euro 6’ levels in 2018 but for now it is not mandatory to keep the DPF.

4. Can my car be tuned over the diagnostic port?

Some of the cars can be tuned over the OBD plug, mostly the European cars. However, this does not apply to every model. Depends on Year, Engine and Brand. Please ask one of our technicians, who will give you an answer – 07 4031 7061

5. Are any of the changes visible to the outside of the car?

Our modifications are not visible to the naked eye, you can however measure your cars performance at our workshop with our software.

6. Does the car get a shorter life after tuning?

The durability of your engine will not be compromised. All modifications are made within the norms of the manufacturer’s settings, remember your vehicle has always had the power potential, but it’s the manufacturers that tone down the power of your vehicle in order to sell more models. These tunes are made for the daily driver and not for the race track – contact us today if you have more questions regarding the durability and power of your engine – 07 4031 7061

7. Can my car get the original software back?

We will be able to restore the default settings of your vehicle if we are able to read and write new tuned software. We keep a copy of your original software. If you have further questions, give us a call and speak to a professional – 07 4031 7061

8. Why isn’t this done by the manufacturer?

There are several reasons for this. Firstly, because of the many different fuel grades available around the world and the level of service that is given to a vehicle’s engine during its life. Engine manufacturers need to warrant engines in countries that have 50+ deg cel ambient air temps in summer, and where the engine doesn’t receive the necessary amount of oil change it should and owners literally drive in an abusive manner. We here in Australia are servicing engines as per the manufacture’s requirements and are usually more mechanically sympathetic towards our motor vehicles. Thus, we can afford not to have our engines factory de-tuned.

Secondly the manufacture develops engines with that much gap for tunes, so they don’t have to create every time a whole new engine in the newer models. We are basically one step in front of them.

9. What is a DPF and EGR delete?

EGR Blocker, by deleting the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) you can improve the power and overall engine efficiency. When you delete or block the EGR, you stop exhaust gases from recirculating back into your engine. This will also help lower EGT's (Exhaust Gas Temperatures). When you book your next MCTA Tune for your vehicle, if you book online we can provide a complimentary DPF and EGR delete – Find your car here!



AdBlue Removal

AdBlue is a fluid (made from Urea and purified water) that is injected into the exhaust gasses, cleaning the exhaust gasses before they enter the atmosphere, essentially cleansing and reducing harmful emissions.
