I’m just home after collecting my car from Airey Tuning, of Cheriton, Hampshire. I have no connections whatsoever with this excellent company, and would like to strongly recommend Tom for his work. It had not run properly since a major rebuild a few years ago, and I’d almost given up hope of getting it running “right”. After trying a number of local “experts” with very poor results, at last I have it running as good as new.
Not cheap, but now producing 132bhp, up from 98, (figures from his rolling road)idles perfectly, picks up smoothly and no more flat spots.
Thoroughly recommended!

We often hear good things of Airey Tuning.
They seem to be a company where the blokes have years of experience .
They are on my radar for tuning my Sprint in the future.

I think Tom has a level of experience and ability virtually unknown these days.
He’ll have to retire sometime, hopefully not too soon!

Tom Airey already retired! once. He only came back after he realised he still loves tuning but hates the admin (invoicing etc). He’s one of a kind and a lovely lovely guy. Accept no substitute if you are in Southern England.

You’ve seen the light. A good dyno tune by someone who knows can save you a lot of grief, time and effort. Without a dyno and proper numbers you are just stabbing in the dark and probably doing damage along the way. Well worth the money spent.
