Thanks to Ricky & the team for fitting in my car first day back of the new year. For getting it fixed and fitted, and under warranty saving me being stranded with no car to source parts - for a Golf, no less! Teresa on Facebook

Dear Rick & Michelle, here's a quick note t thank you for our last vehicle service. We received the usual exemplary persoanl service and are happy to add that the car has performed faultelessly throughout the trip from Adelaide to Katherine towing our 2500 tonne caravan. With regard to the new car wash, we were very pleased with the job done and I'm not sure what you used for the wash, but it's taken 3000kms for it to start showing any signs of dust/dirt marks and that's saying something when travelling in the "red centre"! The dust just slips away! Another job well done and a great idea! Would you please pass on to all staff involved, our sincere thanks for helping to make this a trouble free and enjoyable trip. Thank you all again and kindest regards, Graeme and Leonie on Facebook

Fantastic service and value. Ricky and the boys will look after you and your car. Very female-friendly Jill on Google
Very helpful and obliging staff - Blackwood Dyno serviced my mother's car on short notice and with limited time available. They always note minor issues to be addressed at a later service, and they offer a local drop-off/pick-up service, which is invaluable to my 90 year old mother. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again!

Have been having our car serviced at Blackwood Dyno Tune & Service for some time now. Always well done by friendly and interested, competent staff. It is so much easier than taking the car into the city and paying twice the price. The are affiliated with the national Repco Authorised Service brand, but are an independent business. Another good service was completed on my car a couple of months ago. This was just a normal service, but the same attention to detail was noticed. Pleased with the attention to detail and the feed back in written form that is provided. Nice to have local services! I had my Volvo serviced here and was very satisfied with the facility and the service. It is good to be able to have my car serviced locally. I was certainly pleased with the price compared to where I serviced my car before! Thank you! WaterSport in Craigburn Farm SA on WOMO
Great! Swetlana on WOMO
We find Blackwood Dyno very good, too. Have just had our 150,000 km service done here. This service centre is our regular mechanical needs business and we are more than happy with the service HappyShopping in Craigburn Farm SA on WOMO
A friendly place to get your car serviced. Blackwood Dyno mechanics are always polite and check with you before doing any extra servicing that might cost more. They always give good advice and maintain a high standard of workmanship. Kerry in Plympton Park SA on WOMO
I have my car regularly serviced by Blackwood Dyno Tune and am always pleasantly suprised with the service. As a woman with limited car knowledge, I have appreciated the mechanics explaining each detail to me and treating me as a valued customer. Their costs are about average. Jane in Eden Hills SA on WOMO
Great service and great staff! I get my car serviced at Blackwood Dyno Tune & Service and the mechanics are very helpful. DanniGirl188 on TrueLocal
Great service. Needed a generator part quickly as had to drive back to Pooraka depot to get it. Blackwood Dyno were very helpful, had the part within an hour. Excellent attitude. PeterServiceManager on TrueLocal
Had issues with my LPG last night, so I contacted Ricky & Michelle. The customer service is next level and I highly recommend these guys! They make you feel very comfortable and seem like good honest people! 5 stars. Sam on Facebook
I can't thank Rick and Michelle enough for coming to rescue my smelly petrol car. Rick and Michelle sensed my sense of urgency and panic and we're kind enough to fit us in today, they are removing and shampooing the carpet, removing and replacing the undercover and anything else that needs to be done to make the car drivable again and, more importantly - safe, as the petrol infused carpet could be a real fire hazard. Thank you Rick, and Michelle, you have no idea how much I appreciate you fitting us in so quickly. Trina on Facebook
Ricky and his staff are very knowledgeable, especially on the latest model common rail diesels. Clinton on Facebook
Many thanks to Ricky and team for the wonderful service I recently received, when having my car repaired. Great experience! Feel very spoilt with two brand new courtesy cars to use while our cars undergo a little extra surgery. Thanks Rick and the BDTS Team! Patrick on Facebook
Blackwood Dyno diagnosed the intermittent problem with our Work Ute that the other mechanic couldn't. Fast, Professional and a very reasonable Price. Thanks! Will be back. Daryl on Facebook
I really feel comfortable taking my car to Blackwood Dyno. I know that they only do things to my car that actually need doing - and that is a nice change. Thanks, guys - I will keep recommending you!!! It is hard being a girl and not knowing much about cars. I really trust you guys, and you have always explained to me what needs to be done and I never feel any pressure. I love my car and the way you guys look after her! Jodie in Fairview Park on Facebook
Well, I spoke to a guy named Paul at Blackwood Dyno and he's seems pretty cluey as to what happens. Their rates seem to be more affordable as opposed to Turbo tune. 30 years experience! Well you cant argue with that. I ended up booking my car in for Tuesday next week so I'll be keen to see what kw out put the car is doing at the wheels. Paul also said that the dyno they have is going to be used in the Ford/Holden Show held this weekend at Wayville. And if it's new, the better in my books!
Results of Dyno:
First run was a dismal 110rwkw
and the second run was 115.3rwkw @ 100km/h. Also they found out that one of my oxygen sensors was stuffed. That explained my crap fuel economy.
On the second run they adjusted the timing 5 degrees to 30 BTDC to get that read out.
The torque was a little vague to say the least. I asked the guy what my torque reading was, and he said it was 4500 Newtons.
It doesnt sound like I gained alot in the end considering theres a few mods done to the car.
e.g: pacmaker extractors, 65mm throttle body, Cold Air Induction and 3.45 gear ratio.
That power output obviously could be due to engine getting tired & the fact that I have an auto.
I'm thinking of bolting on a supercharger now, which I was told could gain up to 50% of what I already have. See what happens! BlueOval on PerformanceForums
