  • Having a lifted 2009 Ford F150 with custom rims and sound system allows me stand above the crowd but, only having the single stock exhaust system was letting me down. After talking to multiple exhaust and performance shops looking for a dual system equipped with a Cherry Bomb extreme muffler I was told that it could not be done time and time again. Seeing the work and previous comments regarding Dave and his shop, Motiva, at multiple performance shows and online reviews I went to him with my problem. After talking to Dave about the custom exhaust he said that it could be done and the work was fabulous. The new sound is exactly what I wanted and the care and pride of his shop regarding my vehicle was excellent. If anyone has ever heard that it can't be done talk to Dave Rochau at Motiva Performance or just make it your first choice and eliminate all the problems from the start. You will not regret it!

  • We were dead in the water with stock 200 hp from my Sea Doo RXP until I teamed up with Dave Rochau and Motiva last October, and we're now up to 400 hp and headed toward 500 hp. In four days of tuning at Elephant Butte Lake (in New Mexico), I'm seeing more horsepower than I've seen since I entered the sport in 2006. Motiva is light years ahead of other tuners.

  • After being out of the muscle car ownership for years I purchased a 2010 Camaro SS, and not that 400 hp wasn't enough, but I wanted more. I asked around about a good speed shop and Motiva came up a lot. After a visit with Dave (owner) I decided on twin turbos and was very excited to get it done, but was still nervous not knowing the unknowns and trusting my new Camaro with complete strangers. Well, Motiva hit it out of the park with my expectations. They took great care of my car, installed a awesome system and have taken care of me after the sale. I could not be happier. Hats off to Dave and his master techs. You are true pros.
