It's pretty much a self taught industry. There are classes, although I've heard from other tuners they are bare bones basic and don't provide knowledge worth the price tag.

Pick up these books, read them cover to cover if you have no knowledge about the science and tuning of a gasoline combustion engine.

Engine Management: Advanced Tuning: Greg Banish: 9781932494426: Amazon.com: BooksEngine Management: Advanced Tuning: Greg Banish: 9781932494426: Amazon.com: Books

Also be sure to check out the romraider forums for Subaru specific tuning. Read all of the FAQs on that site. Once you have done that, I recommend reading through this.

https://sites.google.com/site/asubie...gguide/ver-1-0

Then it will be time to start tuning your own car. Don't be scared, tuning isn't some godly working that people make it out to be. Just remember, don't touch stuff if you don't fully understand what it does. Follow that rule and you won't run into any problems.

I started just this way almost 5 years ago now. I've put over 100k miles on my car since I started tuning it, and I've tuned maybe 10-15 of my friends cars, none of which have blown up .

get your wallet out. or listen to theshark. most things you find are 2 day seminars which start from the very basic and lead you into a hands on tuning lesson for about an hour on a dyno

Nice, thank you.

I understand engines. I'm a 91B (wheeled vehicle mechanic) in the Army National Guard. I just don't know anything about open source tuning. Maybe you could help me out one day? I pick up pretty quick and I was great at math when I was going to school. Do you go to the meets?

I've got a few books that mark recommended if you'd like to borrow them. I usually go to the meets every week.
