PLEASE READ BELOW CAREFULLY AS IT INVOLVE SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT!
As you certainly noticed, your volvo xc90 become significantly slower when your Air Conditioning is on this because an AirCon system needs power to run and that power is provided by the engine.
Many volvo drivers feel frustrated while driving with their AirCon on when a simple overtake can easily become a nightmare and a full throttle is a natural reaction when they feel their volvo is not capable to perform as they expected.
This because a diesel engine is meant to deliver a strong “pull” and tow force at middle ranges (2000-4000RPM) even on a full throttle the car is not capable to complete an overtake if driving on a gently sloping road with a medium load onboard.
This will incur in unsafe driving conditions and much more fuel consumption.
Our ECU Remap gives to your volvo xc90 an extra 23HP of power and 17% of extra torque (76NM), so a much more responsive and safer car.
If its true that more Torque gives more “pull” and tow force, its true that less throttle is needed to move your vehicle, so we burn less fuel overall.
We estimate an average of 704 litres of fuel saved every 40.000km driven with your volvo xc90.
A close estimate features an average of 1887 kg of Co2 reduction in the atmosphere every 40.000 km for your volvo after our ECU Remap.
*Figures at the wheels and based on our Dyno tests average. Every car has different output depending on mileage, engine conditions, wheel size etc.
*Average based on customers feedback.
POLLUTION: –1887 KG of Co2
*Average based on 40.000km, $1.20/litre, 2.68Kg of Co2 per litre.
TUNING AT A GLANCE
A modern volvo is a result of a very complex technology and when it comes to modify the ECU (Engine Control Unit) a little error could easily lead to serious engine damages. In order to perform an excellent and safe ECU Remap it requires hundreds of little changes in many different internal ECU files.
EXPERIENCE, TOOLS, FACILITY and TRUST are a must for any volvo ECU Remap and vehicle service in general. A vehicle worth $50k to $100k+ in technology is not in a safe spot when serviced by a business without any of the 4 characteristic above. You might agree with us.

I’m writing this review after a week testing my toyota prado, the car got much more power and torque and was all what i need for my job. Thank you guys
Best Tuner in town.
Got my amarok tuned by the guys and it runs so much better than before . Improved throttle response , a lot more torque , more bhp and better fuel economy. Definitely recommend.
Thanks Gary for an awesome tune. Turbo lag gone and acceleration is insanely quick. Remember this post when you see an SQ5 leaving you for dead at the lights…these guys can hook you up with a fantastic turbo diesel tune – highly recommend!
Gary was Fantastic everything he said was true the extra power from the remapping of the computer was worth the money spent also was given a courtesy car as mine needed to get the clutch done would highly recommend them
Had my colorado 7 tuned here a few weeks ago. Best thing I’ve ever done. No more surging engine noise and now when I tow my boat it’s like it’s not even there.
After taking my Range Rover to 4 mechanic shops & been told to sell it as the turbo was no good or it was ok for it to blow lots of smoke . I gave Gary a call and booked the car in at HI TEC (DTA) to have a look the boys really no there stuff they tuned & serviced it now no smoke & talk about performance go”s twice as good . I 110% recommend Gary & HI TEC (DTA)

I highly recommend Gary from DTA when it comes to diesel tuning (well any sort of tuning actually) due to his experience, honesty and expertise. He has all the latest equipment for dyno tuning and has made my amarok much more enjoyable to drive.
My ute was in there for a major electrical issue which Gary and his team also fixed in great time with expertise and honesty. I asked Gary if he could do a deal with me after the major electrical repairs done on my truck were completed and got him to fit me in last minute before Christmas for a tune at a great price.
I tow a 3 tonne tipper trailer regularly for work with my Amarok and had found the Amarok to labour with the trailer hooked up pre tune. After the tune I gained a fait bit of extra torque and horsepower which has made the Amarok a great tow vehicle.
Also having 1 tonne of material in the back of the tub the other day made barely a difference in the performance and it pulls so much harder and the boost comes on much earlier making the acceleration much more punchy.
Very pleased with Gary and his team and highly recommend him for any sort of tuning let alone diesel tuning. Also check out Hitech Automotive for his great vehicle servicing!
Very professional service my ecu remap is working great totally different vehicle turbo lag almost totally gone much more responsive highly recommended
Great job Gary. Car is so much more responsive. Very happy. Navara D40 2011
Great staff. The ecu recalibration on my 2014 coloardo the car runs so much better heaps more power and better on fuel 100 percent recommend.
This shop will help you with your car power and efficiency. Gives you a decent price on your car remap. My Hilux got 27hp and looks like use less fuel to run.
DTA operations are carried exclusively in our state-of-the-art Dyno room where our tuning team is constantly testing and tuning cars.
Our Dyno room is well equipped with the latest tools and software available in the worldwide market for petrol and diesel engines. Our equipment is always up to date and it’s a result of years of tuning experience.
Our diesel tuning experience started when about 10 years ago Common Rail diesel engines arrived to the Australian market. A Common Rail diesel engine is fully managed by a computer called ECU (Engine Control Unit).
We are able to safely access to most of the volvo xc90 ECUs, many times we are the first company in Australia to be able to access ECU of a new car model. For example, as we are writing this page we are the only tuning company in Australia to be able to access and ECU Remap the new Toyota Hilux 2.8 D4D.
Our expertise is a result of a carefully selected international team committed to deliver the best efficiency out of a diesel engine.
Nowadays there are many auto tuners in Australia offering an ECU Remap service but only few of them are specialized in Diesel tuning. This because a Diesel ECU Remap is completely different from a Petrol engine and diesel tuning experience is still young in Australia compared with other markets like the European. In the meantime there is a huge increase of Diesel cars sold here in Australia, opening a big market for Diesel tuning services.
To achieve an efficient and safe tuning for your volvo xc90 engine 2 major type of experience are required:
5 different tools and software are able to access to about 90% of the car model on the road in Australia. We have all of them up-to-date and senior technicians using it everyday.
like an every day operation, but inexperience could lead in heavy black smoke, lack of consistency, loss of power etc.
We are currently assisting customers with ECU tuned somewhere else, we strongly recommend to be able to get your original ECU file anytime you will need it. Ask to your next tuner this or it may cost you double to fix problems as it takes much more time finding what a previous tuner changed.
At this point is where Experience, Tools, Software, Facility and passion are counting the most.
There are hundreds of sensors, timers, quantities, variables and map files in a CAR ECU. We perform several advanced tests in different climate conditions for any different car model and custom design your ECU setup to achieve the best efficiency.
Here at DTA we custom tune any single ECU, we run a Dyno tests before and after our tuning. We have a fully equipped workshop and any job for a car is made “in house”.
