Llandow Tuning is one of the UKs leading tuning specialists with its main base of operations in Llandow, near the Llandow Race Track.
On site we have an array of the very latest tuning equipment unmatched in the area including Rolling Road Dyno, Knock Detection Equipment and advanced Engine data logging capabilities.
At Llandow we also have a complete Machine Shop for any fabrication work including CNC Plasma, Milling, Lathe, Surface Grinding, Tig and Mig Welding, Box and Pan Folders, Guilloties, Slip Rollers, English Wheel....
What really makes us stand out is our fully equipted electronic suite where not only are we able to test and modify ECU's and have at some point repaired ECU's for every major UK dealer network including (Ferrari, BMW, Maserati, Mercedes, Porsche...) but we also offer a complete electronic and software engineering service for problems that cannot be resolved with off the shelf parts.
Testing and Development is the very key to our sucess. Without quality testing and datalogging how do you know that a recalibration (remap) is safe? How do you know that the power gains stated are real? The simple truth is you don't. We put testing at the core of our development program.
Our software engineers spend weeks often months developing and refining management programs for the latest engines and models.
We operate with a partner a development site in Denmark where we share technical data to help us develop solutions faster, enabling us to test and develop our solutions even further.
Llandow Tuning has always been completly independent. Since 2004 we have never sold another companies tune, remap or reclaibration. All our recalibrations are developed in house by our own software engineerings based on weeks if not months of work.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our product.
Despite being completly independent and developing our own solutions, our prices are comparable to those companies operating as agents of other tuners, i.e. acting like a reseller.
At Llandow we operate 2WD 1200HP braked chassic dyno and a 2WD MAHA LPS chassis dyno and a 4WD braked dyno in Copenhagen. At both sites we also have a on Vehicle dyno, all with high resolution data capture.
Using our Chassis Dyno we can simulate driving conditions in a controlled and repertable way. This means when we develop an engine calibration we do so being able to try and test it in a repeatable way. Its typically quicker than road tuning.
The key purpose of a rolling road is not to give a figure to an engines performance, but instead to allow a vehicle to be tested in a controlled manor, typically under full load. Yes you can measure performance gains, but this is secondary to testing a vehicle to ensure the recalibration is safe.
Whilst a Chassis dyno is great for tuning max power it doesn't always make it possible to tune all vehicles or indeed to get real world performance. Our on-road dyno allows us to dial in a road really which is harder on a chassis dyno
We operate at both our sites a Magicmotorsport DynoRoad dyno which enables us to make accurate measurements in the real world. We will conduct such testing on a private road or the Llandow track. This is included in the price.
The device is connected to a wheel on the car, the vehicle is measured and some calibration takes place. Then when we drive the vehicle we are instantly able to measure the vehicle torque calculate horsepower as if it were in our dyno cell.
We're proud of the fact that we've always developed our recalibrations and remaps in house. Because we were founded by a software and electronics engineer, from the outset we have always developed our own calibrations and engine software
What this means for you is we offer an in-depth understanding of Engine ECU's, how they work, and how we can get your car to perform as you want.
We're one of the longest established tuners in Wales, certianly the longest established Independent Tuner in the area.

When you pick Llandow for your tuning partner we want you to know that our staff are amoung the best you'll find. Our team have the following skills
Electronics is in our DNA. We operate a fully equipted electronics lab with SMD and BGA rework tools, Scopes, Logic Analysier, ECU Test Benches etc.
We provide a complete electronics service including bespoke microelectronic solutions to modification of exisiting systems. Need to adapt an Engine ECU to existing CAN systems?
We have a fully equipted Metalworking and Machine Shop.
Maybe you need custom fabrication? Maybe you need an exhaust modification. We have the skills and equipment to help
Being able to capture useful data whilst a vehicle is under test is key to understanding how a modifcation is impacting on the engines systems.
We can capture in high resolution data from engine sensors and can interface with most on vehicle datalogging or serial communication system and combine this data in a useful and meaninful way.
Interfacting with RS232, CANBUS, LINBUS and Innovative MTX Products, is possible. We can combine from the Dyno and then give you a full report in CSV format for you or our engineers to analyise.
