EXCLUSIVE TO PACE AUTO WERKS – The new VIEZU Performance and Fuel Economy Tuning Technology.
All modern vehicle engines have their tuning controlled by an ECU (Electronic Control Unit), a small computer that receives information from multiple sensors on the engine, transmission, braking and other operating systems and adjusts fuel delivery and ignition settings at around 200 times a second. They are constantly reading how you drive and adapting themselves to your driving style and requirements.
Be sure to get an approved mechanic to work on your ECU, this is not something you should tamper with unless you know how.
Almost all engine ECU’s are dumbed down from the factory to compensate for poor quality fuel and poor servicing (ie: blocked filters , worn spark plugs etc). By re-mapping the ECU operating parameters to maximize your engines potential, fantastic gains can be made in the vehicle’s torque, power and general drivability. Pace Auto Werks can now tune almost everything from the latest Lamborghini down to your lawnmower (for those who want to inject some zip into the laborious job of mowing). This service is EXCUSIVE to Pace Auto Werks and not available anywhere else in Perth.
- Improved power and torque
- Greater engine flexibility
- Increased fuel efficiency
- Smoother throttle response
Turbo charged cars receive the greatest gains, however, naturally aspirated vehicles become much more lively and responsive, not to mention greater fuel economy through increased efficiency. The process happens over a couple of days, firstly we need to download information from your vehicle’s ECU with a general report on the engine’s condition, then this information is sent to VEIZU for re-mapping tailored to your vehicle. The next day we will receive the re-mapped software to upload into your car. The cost for this is from $795 and varies depending on your make and model. You will recoup this in the years to come in fuel economy and driving pleasure.
The tunes are tailored to remain within the manufactures design parameters so no damage will occur, however it may expose any weak links earlier. We can also request a tune above these parameters but you will need to sign a disclaimer to go there.

I recently had my BMW X5 ECU re-mapped to increase power and fuel efficiency which was done by Pace Auto Werks and WOW what a difference !!! I can thoroughly recommend this service to anyone and Pace Auto Werks did an awesome job on a car that is chock full of computers and technology.
Thank you Simon and Kim for improving the everyday drive ability and economy of my car and for your friendly and helpful service, I will always come back to your workshop for great service many years to come.

Hi Simon & Kim,
I hope you had a good Christmas and new year.
“Happy as I was after I bought my 330ci, I could tell that something was missing. After some research I decided that tuning may be what my car needed. As with anything, I was slightly skeptical when I first handed over my money, and wasn’t sure that I would be able to notice a difference. But, the second I got my car back I could actually feel the increased throttle response, and now get at least 50km more to the tank. The car feels lighter and no longer lags when I accelerate. It was definitely worth every cent, my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner!”
Thanks to the team @Pace Auto Werks for such great service and advise.
