Japanese & European Performance Car Specialists


Definitive Tuning partners in performance


 Definitive Tuning was born from pure passion to embrace technology for extracting the utmost power & reliability from performance vehicles.  Originally established by Mike as a part time business  introducing professional dyno tuning & rental north of the city (Toronto).  The facility was purposefully fitted with nothing but the  best AWD Dynapack dynamometer, a monster 60" 50,000 CFM cooling fan and all the  most advanced tuning systems on the market.

As  fate would have it Justin was looking to fulfill a life long dream of  starting a business at a time when Mike was looking to expand his technical capabilities into the world of carbon fiber product development & fabrication.  The two already had a solid working relationship through performance tuning and inevitably decided to partner up to turn Definitive Tuning into the ultimate full service Performance Center and one stop shopping facility! 

Definitive Tuning specializes in Japanese & European performance  vehicles.  Owned & operated by genuine life long car guys that will always provide you with friendly "down to earth"  customer experience, exceptional high quality products & services at a reasonable price!

Where it all started!


A small facility was originally set up strictly for professional dyno tuning with an AWD Dynapack Dyno and crazy large cooling fan.  As we expanded into a full service performance centre, the shop filled up quickly with performance cars, parts, engine builds, tire machines, seemingly never ending dyno tuning sessions and more challenging complete performance car builds!

where we are today!!


Fast forward to today, we are housed in a 10,500 sq ft facility with six generously spaced full size service bays, a dedicated noise controlled dyno cell with fresh air exchange 10 times per minute, dedicated clean room for engine builds and carbon fiber fabrication, work shop with various cutting, grinding machines and mig/tig welders topped off with a spacious, inviting reception lounge where customers enjoy condiments, wifi, music and video.
