Hey everyone, I wanted to share my experience with AWDTuning. Not because I was asked, not because I "could" get a discount for future services, but simply because of how I was treated and the service I received.

I live in a small town in Oklahoma and no one around me works on Subaru's. I had searched and searched for someone to look at my wagon, repair a turbo leak and finally give me a safe, conservative tune. To layer additional requests, my wagon is one of our daily drivers, and we can't "be without it" so I was also going to have to find someone that we could leave it with them while we were out of town (vacation) and also pick the car back up when we got back into town (which was on a Sunday, not just any Sunday...but Easter Sunday!) I had gotten AWDTuning's number since they were "somewhat" close to us (almost 2 hours away) and decided to at least ask if they could not only help, but work around our schedule. I was expecting to be shut down for at the very least, the Sunday pickup.

I had spoken to Jon originally and gave him a rundown of our car, what we needed, when we would be dropping it off, when we would be coming back and if they could help. To my surprise, they were more than willing to help. I had called MULIPLE times before I dropped it off and was always, ALWAYS answered with a flicker of humanity that, honestly doesn't exist like it once did and should still today. All of my questions were being answered fairly, honestly and without a hedge of frustration.

So, we start to make our trek down to Texas, on April the 3rd and were met with storms that were so severe we had to pull over and hide out in an Old Navy until they passed, which of course messed up my drop off time with them, I called AWDTuning to let them know what was going on, where we were and when I would be able to make it. Again, I was greeted with kindness and understanding. We were running out of time before our original flight, after finally getting back on the road and finding AWD's shop, I had to literally run inside, shake Keith and Jon's hands, give them my keys and leave.

I was able to keep in touch with Keith, Jon and Mary via the phone; they answered my calls during and AFTER hours of operations during our trip.

Fast Forward, to our pickup date April the 8th (Easter) Keith, not only went back up to his shop, to unlock our car, but even tweaked with it ON Sunday as well, to make sure it was done just right.

I know that it has only been one day since the tune (I'll post long term results later: Sidenote, it runs smoother than I had even hoped). But, I also know, that I havenít received service like that...in I can't remember how long. I mean that. As a family man, for someone to work around us, with respect and kindness like we were shown, it really means more than "a short review" could ever give justice. It's hard to be without a car, it's hard to coordinate around a busy life, it's hard to find good, honest people anymore, and that's sad. It really is...


I can say this; they went above and beyond for my family and I. They jumped hurdles that most, wouldn't have. They answered calls and questions at hours of the day that others wouldn't have, and they treated us in a way, that sadly...others probably wouldn't have. And I feel like, at the very least, that needs to be said.

I can't thank them enough, not just for "what they did" but "what they did for us..."

I will be back,

Caleb
Ardmore, Oklahoma

Without a doubt, some of the most "stand up people" I have encountered. So often, when someone gets "good" or great service they will move on down the road, without saying anything because they expect it. And to me, that's not the way it should work...growing up, hearing someone say "great job" or "thank you for your hard work" went a long way in my house and you just don't see it enough anymore. We are designed for acceptance, in many different forms...and when someone is blessed with talents to do things that many of us can't and they not only do an amazing job, but go above and beyond what you were expecting, its criminal that someone could walk away without showing gratitude or giving a heartfelt thank you...AND THEN TELLING OTHERS...our world has become very callused and selfish, and it was a breath of fresh air to stumble onto to a group that legitimately cares about the product they put out, but most importantly...the people that walked into their door.

that is awesome miles for a built motor. apparently, whatever changes AWDTuning has made in the shop/parts/tuning theory, it was clearly for the better...that's good news.

John, had a blast hanging out with you and Heather while you were at the shop. Glad to see the car and engine are treating you well after so long. Also heard you guys hit up the track? What was your best time?

And for the record, yes we made several changes over the past year. We have the most amazing crew ever at the shop now. Colin & Victor are our techs in the back, John is taking care of the office and Keith & I brought Will on as our 3rd and only other owner of All Wheel Drive Tuning. Will has been a friend for a while now and we are happy to have him on board with us. He is the owner of our 9 second STi (the fastest STi in Texas and only running 9 second STi on Texas that we are aware of). And yes, it is his daily driver
Will has been building our engines for quiet sometime now and we couldn't be happier. So yes, changes were made for the better. Thanks for asking.

I just bought a bike as a daily, so its going to keep miles off the car...which makes me think about saving for a transmission and doing a e85 tune with some cams...and that would kick me into the 400hp club . Im at 335 right now on their dyno.





Also grats to them for setting a new record at the shop, and still having ways to go

Thank you! Our final numbers last night were 669qhp/ 535wtq at 35.5psi on C16. Maybe making this the highest hp STi in Texas?? IDK. We would have gone for more but we ran out of fuel and they had to get back to Mexico.
For those who don't follow us on Facebook, I'm talking about a beast that we just built. It has an AWDTuning Stage5 fully built EJ257 with a Full-Race twin scroll kit and an FP HTA3794 turbo. This 2011 STi is from Mexico (nicknamed "The Mexico STi"). It came to us after being worked on by another local shop. When it came to us it put down 685whp on the previous shops mustang dyno, but when we baselined the car with the same map it only put down 511whp. Just proving yet again that dynos are just tuning tools that vary from shop to shop.
After we pulled the whole car apart we built the heads with custom AWD port work, and upgraded his cams to BAMF Kelford cams, and upgraded his valvetrain as well. We made a ton of improvements to the fuel system and supporting mods, but used the same power set-up as the previous shop (for now).
After 3 months and many many long sleepless night at the shop we were able to increase the car by over 150hp simply by improving the setup and lots of retuning.
It was great to watch Keith & Will work so hard and have so much fun working on this project. Orestes has been amazing to with with. So happy to have him join the family.
Another thing to point out is that after 4 days of tuning 3 different fuel maps and probably 40+ hours, over 150+ pulls, can you believe that there is absolutely NO blow-by in the engine. Wow. Just goes to show you that Will can build a hell of an engine.

We have more plans for this car. Not sure if we'll make it to 40psi with this set-up like we had hoped, but we'll see.
There are a LOT if things that the previous shop did that just kind of left us scratching our heads, but it's whatever. The knowledge that we've gained this year by building Will's "Fastest STi in Texas in the 1/4th" really paid off. I'm very proud. Can't wait to see what they do when he comes back in August, should be pretty freaking amazing!
Tyler, did you see the video of the launch control on the car? It was so freaking amazing in person.

Hey whats up guys, im new to the fourm world, but i really need some help so i figured id try this out, iv had alot of cars, and a subaru is my dream car, so i finally got one, i had the car for 2 days, and a good friend asked to drive it, i didnt see any harm so i let him, we were in 3rd gear gooing about 50-60mph, getting reade to go to 4th, when he shifted, he put in back at 2nd gear, my rpm's jumped to 7k, and it broke 2 pullys, and shreded my timing belt, im not sure what to do, OEM engine, STi swap, or a rebuild, so i can get it running again, i want the bang for my buck, The STi is gonna be pricy,so i need some help, my car is also located in colorado, do you know of any top of the line shops there? any input would be great!



Oh and downshifting from 3rd to 2nd going 60mph would destroy my engine, espessically if my ti ing belt is shreded,

AWDTuning made 3 more whp than the JoTech car. that 3whp amount is very small, but it still would make Mary's statement accurate ...at least as far as i know.

...yes i realize that he says that they saw higher numbers than this, but they had issues at higher whp so...doesn't really count if the car isn't working right at the higher whp...
