Great guy, great bakery and a Subie owner to boot. Glad you finally posted this Wil, looking forward to it! I had to read your s/n a few times to figure out what it says

Give it a try, want to meet up next weekend and see what we can do?

I have no idea where this place is or if the owner is even working tomorrow? If we don't get something going the weather might be crappy anyway.

If you're referring to the lunch meet at Great Harvest, I think the owner wanted to set something up in June.

saw it too, on Broadway ave today. I think I like the look of slammed imprezas. It takes big balls of steel to put green wheels on a blue sedan

also, for anyone who was actually planning on swinging by the Lunch Meet at BSU, the stadium parking lot is rammed up full of track stars (State Track Meet).

How about 1pm at the Albertsons on Park Center. they have a huge lot and a subway! blue cow is across the street.

I'll be there

Head over to ims. I've heard really good stuff about jake's tuning abilities. Probably the best bet in Idaho. I drove an sti he tuned and it pulled good and ran good. Never met him or talked to him though

Hey guys I know it's way early but I am helping with the Idaho Rally again and trying to round up some volunteers. If you can help out it would be much appreciated. You can sign up at www.idahorally.com We will need people for the 15-17th of July. You would be doing stuff like helping with timing and road block. You will get some of the best spots to watch if you do road block. It will be based out of Boise with an AWESOME super special at the Expo Idaho Fairgrounds.

not to hate on jake and his abilities but subarus are way diffrent tunning wise than evos. all your have to do to an evo to tune it is add fuel and boost and hold on very little timing is touched. subarus are very finicky cars to fun some like alot of timing some dont and putting your car into the hand of someone that has tuned maybe three or four subarus isnt smart. thats just my 2 cents plus if you have ap he cant tune you your have to get tunned by someone that has ap software like clark turner or that guys at surgeline

i am also a believer that to be properly tuned for partial throttle/daily driving it needs to be tuned on a load based dyno (mustang/dynapack) not a inertia dyno like a dynojet

I've never met him or anything just offering a suggestion. Not really anyone else that does subs around here. especially if you can't drive it and have mods outside of what Cobb off the shelf maps can offer. makes things a little easier. But definitely understandable

Im not callin you out of anything and i understand where you are coming from. the thing is is there is alot of nut swings with that guy because he had a 8 sec car years ago. plus he charges almost as much for a road tune as shops do for a dyno tune. guess its nice being the biggies fish in the littlest pond. but he retuned that white blogeye wagon that had all the sti and jdm stuff on it and as i recall he was tuned with ap by surgeline. mike when on a ride with the guy and came back and said that it was slow. but if you want a tune by him then do it im just saying if you want a tune get it from someone that knows subarus and how the act. there is really good tuners on here that with email tune for very cheap or just head to portland lots of really good shops there

^^^^^^^^ im keeping my options open as far as tuning goes dont think i wanna putt that 16g turbo to its limits anything between 250 or 300 is fine by me but if it comes down to it i think a 6-8 hour drive to tow it to portland or utah might just be worth it. or ill email clark turner see if he can make an app and wtf were in the northwest y didnt any1 think of getting a awd dyno? hell socal has several andthey rarely see rain or awd cars.
