Somewhere to have my 2015 JGC SRT Tuned

Hi people this has been asked before many times, but I can't find it on the forum, I will say sorry in advance.

I live in the Hunter Valley in NSW and I want to know where I can take my 2015 JGC SRT to have it tuned, I have fitted a Injen CAI and Borla Axle back exhaust recently, now I want to get someone to tune the vehicle running RON 95 Petrol I was reading on this forum where 98 makes little difference, these people can be either Sydney or Newcastle it doesn't bother me at all, in fact it gives me an excuse to drive the vehicle if it's further away I just love it......

I also want to swap the 205 F - 95 Degrees C thermostat and gasket for a 180F - 82 Degrees C one, then get the tuner to change my Thermo fan settings to suit the new thermostat.

The reason I want to swap is that with the recent floods we had in and around Maitland NSW, I was stuck in a long line of traffic in the rain and I was watching the temp gauge via the SRT Performance App sneaking up to 107 Degrees C before I could hear the Thermo fan kick in.

I have never liked engines running this hot so I turned off the A/C and put the heaters on full boar to help keep the engine cooler, which dropped the Temp to 103 to 105 Degrees C, when the traffic moved off finally the engine temp went from 105 Degrees C to a Normal 95 Degrees C pretty fast we the fresh air flow, I just don't like the Alloy heads cooling off that quickly at all.

So is there a place out there somewhere that comes highly Recommended if so PM me, I don't wish to start an argument on who is better at service and tuning at all if you want to mention in the forum please feel free, it was not me who started the blue remember......

And my SatNav needs updating still..........paid $90,000 for the vehicle and the navigation doesn't know the Hunter Expressway which opened in March 2014......

PM dasko76, he's up your way and has a tuned car.


I doubt the t.stat will make a difference in a street vehicle, but if it does let us know.


There is NO update for the maps.....

Thanks for your time, the lower temp Thermostat will make about a 10 - 12 Degrees C difference btw...

DC here are some pics of the Jet 85 Degrees C Thermostat I fitted yesterday one was taken at 1.00pm yesterday and after I finished work at 3.00am this morning as you can see it makes a big difference, the vehicle runs between 85 and 87 Degrees C, I have left the fan settings alone at this stage as I think we 2015 owners may have to swap out our Engine PCM's to be able to do a tune.........
