Thumbs up GrimmSpeed (merged thread)

I was looking at other vendors in the reviews section and found none on Justin aka GrimmSpeed, so I thought I'd start it off.

Customer service is way beyond excellent, as Justin goes far and above all expectations:
-replies to PMs in a timely manner; great communication before/during/after order
-never hesitates to give advice and help if asked
-straightforward with suggestions on projects
-willing to 'take care of you' if at all possible, if core is available he'll get it out to you so little to no car downtime

My expericence so far with GrimmSpeed applies to:

-Crossover Groupbuy.
-Massive Port TD04.
Great pricing ,fast shipment and product is great as expected for both x-over and turbo.

Also looking out to expand not only his great port and polish skills, but also to provide new and price conscious products; i.e. hood dampners, Phenolic spacers.

Thanks for everything Justin!

These guys are great. Justin is pretty much the best guy ever. Very quick turn around on everything I've given him. I've got the exhaust mani P&P, TGV deletes, crossover pipe, and I'm probably going to pick up a set of phenolic spacers before the build is done. They run a great business, and the guys there are friendly and helpful. They've been great throughout my entire build. Thanks alot guys!

Great to see good reviews up here. I had my headers, throttle body, turbo, and uppipe ported, polished, and gasket matched (for some of the parts) before Grimmspeed was founded. Everything looked great then, I can't imagine how it must look now due to all the experience they must have

What can I say? Well, for one Justin really took care of my order with ease. The shipping to Hawaii was reasonable, the service was very fast, and he's available on AIM for chats when needed.

Hands down, very very good service.

Da Parts

I ordered a set of pnp tgvs which I requested to be coated. I was even advised to be gentle with the coating as they were very fresh. Good lookin out for me! The pnp work, as you all know, was fabulous. We used his set as a model for another pnp set that my buddy did.

There were no leftover bits of metal anywhere. No dust, no boogers, nada. The gasket matching was perfect. The coating was great and I just sent him my cores so that one of y'all can experience the pleasure of flow. My car is in the middle of a massive parts binge and is without suspension or wheels at this time. I'll get a review of the functionality of that part up when the car is painted and tuned.

But honestly, I can't say enough about how good they looked. AND they were a great price. NICE.....

Thanks again Justin! If I were a rich guy I'd send some Jag for the robot. Unfortunately, with a kid and widebody project, I'm not in that position at this time!

Keep up the good work!

These guys are awesome. Great Great work. Sent in my brand NEW!! VF34 turbo and Throttle body for Port and Polish. The P&P job was excellent didn't take too much off didn't leave too much on, Took off just the right amount. Also ordered a set of Intake manifold gaskets and Phenolic 8mm spacers w/bolts.
Everything came back packaged nice and tight, so no worries for transit damage. I will definitely send more parts in the future for P&P work. Thanks to Justin and the Grimm speed team!!. Keep up the good work.

Has Grimmspeed been closed for the past week? I'm trying to contact Justin regarding the replacement of a defective crosspipe, but he hasn't responded to any of my PM's from the past week.

glad to hear they are around, i've been sending pm's for the last week to see if they got my returned cores.... no response yet... but sounds like there just overwhelmed and i've only been filling up their pm box more!

as far as products and shipping times are concerned they get a 10 out of 10 in my book!

problem Traction?

Thumbs up Grimmspeed FTW!

As some of you may have read in the 2.5 powertrain section... i recently took on the project of installing an invidia EL header on my 06 sti and ran into severe problems...

well the FIRST time we had to install it i was extremely tough, fought the whole way, typical of a subaru... once we installed it, we found out it had a gasket leak... i have had similar problems before and i knew that the flanges were warped by the first owner (DO NOT BUY A USED HEADER).

We pulled it back out and straightened the flanges with a file and a level... all seemed good so we re-installed it... well i drove 200 miles from jax to orlando and by the time i got to otown the header was leaking again

I knew that i needed a solution, contacted justin from grimmspeed about the remflex gaskets... i use paypal and my paypal wasnt going to clear and i need my car to run since its my daily driver... justin overnighted the gaskets to me and i was able to put them in...

if it hadnt been for his quick service and great communication i wouldnt of been driving for at least another week...

So grimmspeed... you guys have def earned a: and a from me!

Keep up the great work guys..

GrimmSpeed products and services are absolutely incredible. There are a lot of things that I'd change if I bought a new STi and started my entire build over again; however, dealing with Justin/GrimmSpeed is definitely not one of them.

Glad to hear you had a similar experience!

thanks GrimmSpeed

Ok so I just got home from my long drive back from Santa Clarita Ca. The drive home had to have been the best time I have spent in my car! The car is ****ing nasty! it moves, and pulls really hard up top and just does not want top stop! My first tune on 6/24/07 I got 304/255......due to some meth problems and a really really hot day! Yesterday I got a amazing 330whp, and 319 torque. Thats 26whp, and 65 Torque, and man that makes all the difference in the world! My only new mods were Grimm Speed P&P with crossover and a turbo XS Dtec! (thanks Sean) Then Tim did what he does best tuning. I am really happy that I made the drive to Yimi sport, and have a round two with Tim.

People I would like to thank!

*Tim Bailey
*Paul, & everyone at Yimi Sport. You guys rock and I'm "hella" proud to say that you guys do work on my car
*Sean, for that great Dtec, it really makes a huge difference!
*Grimm Speed, love the P&P and crossover you guys rock!!
*Chris at Scooby Tunner for all hours on the phone and all the great stuff you sold me.


30am on HWY 5



Showing some love to people at Yimi Sport


On the dyno, thats 329/318 of wrx bliss lol


The dyno sheet!


And the drive on the way home, crazy ass weather. Nice in so cal, to nasty back home



got to get home fast!




Nasty nor cal lol
