So where do I start telling you about Darren, Callum and Energy Tuning. Basically, my car a Mazda CX5, if it had been human would have been terminally ill, but Doctor Darren and his team have somehow managed to get this car which has baffled Mazda Main Dealers and Mazda Head Office Senior Technicians to a point of them washing their hands of it, back on the road. I cannot believe the amount of time, attention and courtesy that Energy Tuning have showed and even after leaving the 'shop' continue to show to me. I know it became a personal challenge for Darren, but that just shows the lengths they will go to help people out and the satisfaction I suppose of doing what the manufacturer COULDN'T.. If I could give 6 stars I would.

5 star professional service. Highly recommended company who have gone above and beyond to help my daughter recently with an engine fault on her car. Reliable and friendly family business that will go that extra mile to help.

Cannot speak highly enough of energy tuning ltd. They are professional, friendly, innovative and the service they provide is absolutely brilliant. They provide the best customer service by far that I have ever experienced and I would recommend them to anyone.

VW GOLF 150 REMAPAll I can say is theses guys are professional, they mapped my car in the time they specified, and at the price they quoted. They refused to take a penny from me until I had test driven it and was happy with their work,I have a VW Golf. 150hp that now drives so smoothly I thought it was a different car, responsive, very powerful, and best of all I’m getting more MPG, they even took the annoying start stop off free of charge.I gained 45hp and 100nm of torque, as I said earlier it feel like Im driving a different car, my car now can out perform the GTD top of the range model.I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their service to anyone, you won’t be disappointed. Friendly people to deal with, they certainly put a smile on my face, they were also cheaper than a lot of their competitors.D WrightAshington

I have had my car in a few times for different problems over the years and every time either Darren or Callum have found the problem and rectified it to a top standard. Just had my car in last night for a remap and it feels like a totally different car LOVE IT! Thanks lads definietly 100% recommend!!

My Focus ST had a remap done by another company. It started coughing, spluttering and was running very rich. Maf sensor failed. It got to the point where it was pretty much undrivable. I took it along to Energy Tuning and had a good talk about the do's and don'ts of remaps. I got it booked in and they took it on an advanced diagnostic road test. The way the previous garage had remapped it, it could of ruined the turbo, cat and engine through over fueling. The guys at Energy Tuning had to put it back to standard, and after a positive road test, had my car running perfect within 5 hours from dropping it off. I highly recommend Energy Tuning LTD. Honest lads, great prices, top work and an immaculate workshop.

Had my car in with energy tuning today for a remap when I dropped the car of I spoke to some of the lads and I must say how professional and a well organised friendly genuine people. They rang me back up saying my car was ready to collect and I replied “okay I’m just going to sourt a lift or get a taxi I shouldn’t be too long”. He then offered to give me a lift free of charge from my home! I’m totally shocked what other company in any industry of work would offer to do that? Must say thanks very much lads really appreciate it. *HIGHLY RECOMMEND*

Our Rav developed what Toyota told us was a DPF problem. Toyota's response was to replace it at a hefty cost. This was not guaranteed to fix the problem. After having the DPF cleaned by another company the Rav was burning fuel at a fast rate and smoking heavily. We contacted Darren and we arranged to take the car in. He worked tirelessly to find the problem. Frozen software. We are extremely grateful to have our car back on the road. This even means after service to keep an eye on the cars performance. We would highly recommend The Energy Tuning and DPF Doctor in Ashington. Exceptional team, thank you.

Would recommend to anyone, service from the lads is spot on. Took my E46 in for a remap as i felt I can get more power out of it. The car wasn't 100% right at first as some error codes came up. The guys recommended a local garage, got the issues fixed went back and got it remapped with the carbon clean. The E46 is tuned correctly now. Thank you lads!!

So we recently had our main van remapped and given the once over by Darren at Energy Tuning in Ashington. Bearing in mind this van travels all over the UK daily and mainly driven by Craig and I, we have been far from disappointed.I was naive to believe that the service they offer mainly covers high performance and top end cars but we have been amazed at the difference this has made both in terms of power and fuel efficiency. We have a lot of traders both locally and further afield who are self employed and owner operators of their own vans and I cannot recommend this service enough, based on our own experience. It’s has made our once struggling Citroen Relay a dream to drive and it now has so much pull in it......just a shame we cannot get any more stock on to it �Thanks again Darren ��
Jamie Atkinson
15:42 08 Dec 17

Darren is a genius solved my mis fire on car after engine management light appeared, completed diagnostic and fitted new parts as well as Carbon Clean treatment. Car is now running perfect , great after service care also. Updated me all the time he had it. A refreshing change from most experiences people have with different garages. If you have an issue with your car see Darren first

Would like to say a massive thank you to energy tuning.I didn't notice much of a difference at first apart from it running quieter but over the weekend it has transformed it now has no flat spots throughout the Rev range and seems to pull stronger at low rpm and is by far alot smoother to drive I would recommend this to anyone and will definitely be using you guys again.

What a difference to my car, more torque and power through the Rev range feels like a different car. Can still be driven normally too but has made it a lot easier. The lads have even remedied a fault prior to the remap using a diagnostic machine which found why my car was lumpy at times, top work highly recommended, good prices and local!

Excellent diagnostic place. After an ongoing fault with my van and a year of getting nowhere with local garages, I took my van to energy tuning and they diagnosed the fault within 2 hours for a very reasonable price. I only wished I had taken it to them first.

Excellent product and the company is great. I had a TurbotuneDT on my Toyota d4d and it was transformed! When I recently replaced the Toyota I looked to Energy Tuning again for their support. They told me I could simply upgrade my existing unit to suit my new vehicle. Low and behold I received a totally new or fully refurbished unit within a day plus overnight shipping. And fitted it in 5mins (my new Volvo has convenient access, other vehicles do vary in time). First test drive and already it's running stronger, pulling cleanly and takes off like a bullet whatever gear it's in. My fuel economy has improved also, measured at the pump, not on the trip computer. I fully recommend the TurbotuneDT to anyone wanting a lasting but not permanent solution to restrictive OEM tuning, and knowing that the support and customer service is there to back you up. I hope to make use of their full remapping service in the near future also. Thank you Energy Tuning Ltd and Darren.

Bought a Turbotune DT at the Caravan show in NEC in 2010.. fitted in abt 30minutes to my T31 model Nissan X-trail (30mins first time, then, had to remove it for warranty service.. did this in about 15 mins and re-installed in abt 15 mins). I have the settings both on 'Med' for torque and BHP... makes a massive difference in pulling power with a caravan in tail. I can now take hills much easier and do far quicker overtakes (when safe) and no longer trundle along causing tail-backs (Jeremy Clarkson.. take note). The car was doing anything between 18-22mpg while towing, pre DT.. but I now get anything around 28-30mpg. Bought the item at NEC offer price of £170 in 2010 and it paid for itself in the first year of ownership, by three trips to France. Three years have now elapsed and it has probably saved me several hundred pounds in fuel savings by now, as well as making the towing experience much better... and never missed a beat. Darren, thank you for a product that does what it claims and good to see you at the NEC 18/10/13.
