Ben has been with Enginetuner since 2005.
Originally joining the team as a fresh faced apprentice straight from school. Aceing his apprenticeship, Ben moved straight into the role of technician.
His skillset soon earned him progression to workshop foreman, quickly moving up the ranks once again to workshop manager. Ben has now taken the reins as our General Manager.
Consumed by cars since he can remember, Ben is a fan of all types of builds, though his heart lies in the JDM scene.
In particular he has a penchant for engine swaps, his first car, a Mini 850, got treated to a 1275cc engine, though it was not long before the lust for JDM goodness kicked in.
An S13 200SX was next up which got an engine swap with a RB25, an S14a followed with a forged engine, a quick flirtation with EP3 Honda Type R, MX5 turbo, and then a 1JZ swapped RX8.
A Subaru Impreza WRX wagon and Impreza Hawkeye STI are currently providing the smiles.
Rob OsborneRob is our Managing Director having taken over from Alan Jeffery in that role in 2020.
Obsessed by cars and by making fast cars even faster, Rob’s relationship with Enginetuner began with one of Alan’s famous workshop tours and the subsequent rebuild of the engine in his cherished 2004 Subaru Impreza STI Litchfield Type 25. Followed soon after by the acquisition of an Enginetuner-built 2008 STI Hatch, Rob jumped at the chance to buy the business in 2020 to build on Alan’s foundation and to push Enginetuner to the next level.
The ambition that Rob, Ben, Martyn and the rest of the team have set themselves is for Enginetuner to become the UK’s finest performance engineering firm. To continue to push the boundaries of tuning excellence, to exceed our customers’ expectations and most importantly, to help them realise their dream.
Married with two young boys, Rob’s fascination with fast cars is reflected in his current collection of Subarus, special JDM cars and thumping German V8s.
Andy has worked at Enginetuner for 20 years.
He builds our engines and undertakes complex engineering work using our range of machinery.
If you have had an engine rebuilt at Enginetuner, the chances are that Andy built it and will remember.
Aside from his two decades at Enginetuner, Andy has spent his entire career in the car trade.
Away from work, Andy has a keen interest in building and all things motorcycles.
To wind down, he loves to ramble (the hiking variety) with his family.
Andy advises us that his dream car would be a Triumph Spitfire but he also has a soft spot for the Reliant Kitten.
For some reason, Andy has 12 toes - 6 on each foot!
Having worked for Enginetuner for 23 years, Martyn is the man responsible for mapping all of the cars that come to us.
Martyn thrives on writing the best map to suit each individual car’s requirements and it is only when he is 100% happy that a car earns the “Mapped by Martyn” accolade.
Known as one of the best mappers in the country, Martyn loves tuning our high spec bespoke Enginetuner engine builds and thrives on a technical challenge.
When quizzed about his dream car, Martyn opted for the Audi RS6 due to its all-round capabilities.
That said, we can’t see him swapping his 2.1L Subaru Impreza GC8 drag car any time soon.
With a ¼ mile time of 9.763, this car is seriously quick and Martyn has his heart set on making it even faster.
When he isn’t making cars faster, Martyn (sometimes) enjoys watching his beloved Liverpool FC play.
Tom, aka Tom 1, aka Moose (short for Thomoose) has been part of the Enginetuner story for 11 years.

Tom also has a passion for car detailing.
Tom’s fun fact may not seem like much a fun fact but he informs us he died once thanks to a nut allergy whilst on holiday in Australia.
His dream car is a white Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9.
Will joined the Enginetuner team in October 2020.
The opportunity to work with some impressive performance cars has fulfilled Will’s ambition in the trade.
Will’s favourite type of work is fabricating, welding and bringing older cars back to life through careful restoration.
When he isn’t working, Will loves to work on his latest project car – a Honda Civic VTi, while his dream car is a Nissan 180sx with a 2JZ engine conversion.
Aside from the Honda, Will’s hobbies include relaxing and spending time with his young family.
A fun fact about Will is that he used to be a circus performer.

Having given much of his life to Enginetuner, Alan likes to keep up to date with projects and in touch with his many customers.
Alan has almost literally driven everything. It's a hard choice, but we think his dream car would be his favourite Aston Martin, the stunning DB4 GT.
His hobbies include supporting his wife with her horses, racing of all kinds (of course!). He also learnt to fly in the 1980's, frequenting Dunkeswell and Plymouth airfields.
Alan is a committed 60's Mod, and regularly rides a tuned Lambretta, mirrors and all, with other like minded folk.
He's always had a soft spot for the over the top extrovert cars from the USA. But then, he likes British cars and Italian cars, and French cars, and German cars and Japanese...
