T.I. Performance was started out of our efforts to enable open and simple tuning of Australian Ford Falcon EA-AU Fairlane, XR6 and XR8 models.
Work began in 2007 with a basic definition for the first T.I. Performance test vehicle, an EF Fairmont. This work centred on finding basic tables required for fuel and ignition control in the 4DBG binary. Collaborating with EEC experts overseas, the definition was slowly worked on until we had documented many parameters. Support was extended to the EL series, along with EF Manual. These definitions were all available on our website as they were being developed.
In 2008, T.I. Performance started working with Advanced Technologies, to help test and distribute locally designed J3 chips and programmers. Also in 2008, local EEC tweaker Jaysen Anderson adapted the GUFB definition onto the EL XR8 V8 EEC series. This opened the door for tuning local V8s using open definitions and Australian designed hardware.
In 2009 we started to see definitions for AU series EECs being developed, and backported definitions for EA, EB and ED ECUs, along with further development of the existing definitions and revised hardware to support the use of the definitions. We also added an Owners Gallery to our site to let our customers display what they are using our products on.
In 2010 we completed hardware support for AU series EECs. We saw more and more customers impressed with our products, as evidenced by our Owners Gallery, which now included some more unusual examples, including Nissan Patrol and Toyota Landcruiser 4×4’s and FE, XE and XF Fords amongst others. These cars had been retrofitted with Ford engines and ECU’s thanks to our ability to bypass Smartlock amongst other features.
2011 saw us sponsor local events to get our name known in the market. Our now Supercharged EF Fairmont appeared at the boostedfalcon.net Cruise for Charity and various other events. In 2012 we scaled up production with a new manufacturer, and added many additional features to our tunes, including Transmission Remapping.
In 2013 we grew our definitions further, and published updated tuning guides on how to obtain the best results using our tuning gear. We launched a brand new website, including a Library which contains loads of free information on how to tune your Ford. 2014 saw us updating the Library with more free information on DIY Tuning, including how to use our gear to tune Turbo and Supercharged vehicles.
In 2015 we launched a range of quality performance EFI products from BMC, Bosch, Walbro and a few others. These products were used and tested on our own vehicles so we can stand by the quality, and they work great with our DIY Tuning gear.
Since 2015 we have been steadily growing our product range, and continuing to offer our customers the best advice and performance products in the local market.
Our mission is to be the best provider of quality hardware for tuning Australian Ford Falcon vehicles, to offer an extensive range of quality products for both OEM replacement and performance upgrades, and to offer great advice and customer service enabling our customers to get the best from their build.
