Anyone know of a reliable tuner in the area who can/does work on STis?

Also anyone know of a reasonably priced dyno where I could get it dyno'd out before I start doing mods to mine?

There's an awd dyno at LCC, if you know of someone in the auto class.

I am also looking for a tuner in GR, but Chicago is looking like the best option.

If anyone knows of a place nearby, I am in a bind with my STi and need help. I need an entire motor. Upon Delta doing an engine teardown to install a new short block, my heads are to far gone (apparently). I'm looking into options, and taking it down to chicago is high up on the list.

Any thoughts?

PM me for help with the engine.

Another option than going to P&L or AMS is remote tuning by Ed at EQ Tuning.

I got the car at Holtzlander Autos, a small dealer in Allendale that literally is house. Delta is hooking me up with a new motor for a great price. I've always avoided going to the stealer for parts/repairs, but Delta does a great job and their rates are great.
