PowerTorque Engines is one of Queensland's leading high performance engine building and tuning workshops.
The company specialises in LS1 to LS3
engines and provides a range of products
and services for late model Holden cars and
their HSV variants.
PowerTorque Engines started in 2000 as
a contracted race engine building workshop
and was responsible for building and tuning
race engines for V8 Supercars, sport sedans,
offshore power boats and off road race
With the introduction of the LS1 engine
to Australia and more importantly, specific
engine tuning software, PowerTorque
Engines had a major change in focus and
became dedicated to offering performance
upgrade packages to LS1 powered road and
race cars using the many years of experience
gained from extensive race engine building.
In July 2007, Walkinshaw Performance
appointed PowerTorque Engines as the
Queensland distributer for its range of
performance parts and packages.
PowerTorque Engines now operates out
of two locations to best service customers
with workshops in Brendale on the north
side of Brisbane and at Ormeau, which is
halfway between Brisbane and the Gold
Both locations offer full workshop and
chassis dyno facilities and the Brendale
workshop also has an engine dyno.
PowerTorque Engines can extract the very
best from an engine package for both MAF
and MAFless tuning.
By optimising ignition timing events and
air/fuel ratios, a customer's tune will
generate better power, better fuel economy
and better throttle response by maximising
the efficiency of the engine package.
Custom tuning also allows alteration of
rev limitation, torque management settings
and in automatics, shift pattern can be
customised to suit individual requests.
On a car with exhaust and cold air intake
modification, gains of 20kW to 30kW at the
wheels are achievable.
Performance tuning for all late model
European vehicles is another of PowerTorque
One of the most effective ways to
increase the efficiency of an engine is with
the use of a free flowing exhaust system.
Larger diameter pipes and less restrictive
mufflers give the car the sound to match the
performance and helps let the engine
PowerTorque Engines offers a range of
exhaust options from cat back systems
through to full systems with extractors and
high flow catalytic converters.
Both mild steel and stainless steel
systems are available.
The company also has a number of cold
air intake options, from replacing high flow
panel filters through to new air boxes or over
the radiator style of cold air intakes.
These improve air flow into an engine
providing power and efficiency gains the
intake also adds a deep induction roar under
wide open throttle.
PowerTorque Engines is located at Unit
1/48 Kremzow Road Brendale and Unit
4/76 Blanck Street in Ormeau.
