Will do. Yeah I've been able to do dyno tunes for over a year. Convenient for sure when the need arises.

Im a past DSG and TDC Tuning (NH) customer and would highly recommend EFI Tuning in CT. They are worth the drive.

All those shops do (or soon will) not have any in house tuners. Mikey Botti is working out of EFI Logics for now.

Honestly, there are a few good tuners in the area right now. Any of the ones mentioned in this thread would be perfectly fine, they're all good.

That being said, Matt from wicked innovations is a great guy and would easily take care of the OP.

Hit up Bren @ BrenTuning. He is an excellent tuner, and really knows his stuff. He does Subarus day in and day out - highly suggested. He is currently dyno tuning in Auburn, MA.

I went to him after working with another shop for a couple years and picked up significant power. However more importantly, the driveability is 100x better, and the car is finally smooth again.

FYI - EFI lost their tuner Chris last year due to a trajic accident and I believe since then they've been having "guest tuners" at their shop while trying to firm up a permanent, qualified replacement.

Bren is the man. Brentuning.com He knows his stuff like no other that I've met in the area. On top of all that, he's a cool dude. I won't go anywhere else. He is good with all cars but knows subarus like the back of his hand as he does so many.
