As the plan progresses toward the Muster, I ahve done the braks(a big thanks to Nuts) I will sort the transmission leaks and then finally have the car tuned. The question is should I get the pony run on a dyno or given he is a stock motor then maybe just plugs leads and timing. I'm open to suggestions and advice.

I would get it tuned on the dyno; I had my old coupe tuned by dynotune in belconnen, and they got it running at it's best;
I have had it "tuned" by a couple of other workshops, one with dyno facilities, but the results were no where near as good as what dynotune achieved. more power, better economy, smoother, more driveable, easier starting...
I used to take my old car to auto tech in hume. DO NOT TAKE YOUR CAR TO THEM!!
I think we have the start of the story here Nuts:
My little rover quintet finally ate it yesterday afternoon (in the rain no less!) and so i need a new daily car stat. The two im currently eyeballing are a 2004 ba xt with factory lpg and 170k on the clock for 12g drive away or a 2005 Mazda 6 with 145k for 11g (hopefully drive away as well).
Haha, no big story - just one bad experience after another. It was back when i had the gtr and autotech was owned by Peter dowling, the father of a school friend. He new his stuff and was honest. However he retired and handed the reigns over to a guy called Ed who used to own integra motorsport - a guy who has a pretty bad reputation in the rice burner community. Anyway, all this knowledge was subsequent to my experiences with them. Fortunately i worked at bunnings with a guy who worked at autotech as well, who alerted me to their dodgy dealings. I think his exact words were "they rip off young blokes wherever they can" - not a good sign for me since i was young and a bloke.
They just had a habit of taking on more work then they could handle, which generally meant surrendering the car for up to and over a week at a time, only to find that they'd never actually fix anything and charge me a fortune for it. Took them 3 goes to find that a ball joint needing replacing, and they never seemed to be able to properly tune the computer they installed. In summary, they're useless and will charge you a fortune for the time they waste.
