T5 Post Icon Anyone used " badger 5" tuners in Stonehouse, glos?

The nearest rolling road to me is "badger 5" in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire.

I've had a chat with them a few times now, they seem very competent, and have some decent kit in there.
Anyone used them for t5 tuning?

Ta,

Mike.

he'd be very well known in Seat Ibiza tuning circles, he started by importing green induction kits and dynatwist , then progressed. He raced a very high powered Ibiza (think some may know him he had a 16v mk2 golf with throttle bodies, which he imported too back in the day). Lost track of what he's been up to in the last 7 years though. badger bill brockbank I think is his name, google it.

I will look for a diesel tuner to be honest, although Bill is a competent turner he's more into 1.8T engines ! He's got a 2 wheel dyno as well...

He comes across as very competent, he's advising me on an efi conversion to a 1961 Phantom v.
He's done loads of vw 2.0 tdi engine tunes, and seemed very confident that the T5 would not present any issues.

I'm split in my thinking. Have heared lots of good stuff about Mr Pendle, but he's flipping miles away from me - I'd rather deal with someone nearby.

Bear in mind DailyNX are a Revo dealer so if its a custom map you are after by the sounds of it make sure they are just not slinging a revo map on your van. They may well be doing there own maps as well but worth checking.
