Meet Vivian Machado of Quick Tricks Automotive Performance in Three Lakes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Vivian Machado.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I began custom tuning the Ford 6.0L diesel trucks in 2004 with software provided by the manufacturer for the programmer, SCT, in Sanford, Florida. Our popular performance files are called Looney tune and our customers Go Looney!

Rene, my business partner worked for Ford for over 23 years and was my customer for years, before we opened this business together.

Has it been a smooth road?
No, nothing in life is easy! We’ve been lucky cause we offer a good product that can’t be purchased everywhere. But, without the awesome customer service we provide, we would not have gotten far. Our business has grown, primarily, through word of mouth, since we have not advertised. It is a blessing when someone calls and says they were recommended to us by a customer… or, a customer buys a new/different vehicles and comes back for new tunes. That’s when we know, we did a good job!

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Quick Tricks Automotive Performance – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We specialize in Ford diesels but also work on Dodge and Chevy. Our niche is custom tuning, where we write files that replace the stock manufacturers computer and allow more power, increased fuel mileage and reduced turbo lag.

We have a full shop service shop that Rene runs and most recently, we launched a new site/online store: Our old site was first introduced in 2011 and really outdated!

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love Miami. I love the weather, the people, the food… I mean, I have lived here since I was 12 years old, my family and friends are here!
