because someone may have something to say or might be holding off on a review because they didnt know such a thread exists. seems like a logical explanation to me...

I did it just to annoy you.





















But maybe it was this:

vision.dynamix, I guess annoying you was just an added bonus, eh?

Jimmy is just about there...hes been doing trunklids and wheels all the time and is just getting ready to paint a GD RHD firewall swap that he put into a GC.



Then we can get all the v7 goodies installed.

But yeah, for most stuff he is ready to go!

I picked up a clutch slave cylinder from wicked innovation the day I did my transmission swap, luckily they had one, or I would of had to put my 5 speed back in. They gave me a good deal too!

Not a bad word to be said about these guys.

My bug will be going there very sshortly for some body work and then this summer in june it will be back hopefully for the motor swap.

I've been there twice this past two weeks just to pick up parts (your bumper support hershey^^) and end up staying for at least an hour just discussing our cars or what they have in the shop and what they are doing.

Definitely a great business and I'm very excied you will be doing body work there

I wont be going anywhere else when i need work done on my car. Had a downpipe and front lip installed and had M@ pro tune my car. All i can say is wow. Great group of guys everyone friendly and get work done quickly and the prices cannot be beat. I looked around and no one beats these guys for cost and quality. My car feel great and I hope this tune doesn't make me want more power anytime soon but if I do i know where I will be going when I need the work done. +1 for WI!

After much careful planning and a ton of advice/tips/tricks from the wonderful guys at Wicked Innovation, I successfully completed installing my new Blouch 20G XT-R and all supporting mods over the weekend. Total working time was about 16 hours. This included injectors, spark plugs, EWG, motor mounts, manifolds, intake, inlet, .................

Both Tom and Matt were on tap at pretty much every moment I really needed help. I went to the shop last night and spent several hours shooting the **** with them, between tuning and having my 90k service done.

Tom swapped my tranny and rear diff fluids in 30 minutes or less, all while carrying on a full conversation. Matt had my car perfectly dialed in about an hour, if that. After all the modifications it has seen, the car is running better than it ever has; no lie! I can not imagine having a better, smoother, more trustworthy tune.

And on top of all that, the pricing on everything from parts to labor was more than fair. I could not have a complaint if I wanted to



I always look forward to the next mod that brings me to WI, just as an excuse to sit around shooting the **** with these guys.


Thanks again M@ and Tom!

id like to throw my 2 cents in here.

i originally purchased an 11' wrx. now coming from a modded cobra i could barely wait to get some more hp into my new toy. matt and tom came highly recommended. all i had done was a stage 2. everything came out just as i expected.

fast foward 5 months and i find myself at the dealership taking delivery on a 11' wrb sti limited, which btw, all those threads talking about which one is better, is an absolute waste of time imho. im kicking myself in the a** for not doing it right the first time. anyway, dealer ran into a problem with my exhaust on the old car so i called up tom and asked him if he had my old exhaust, which he did!! now i know it may not seem like a big deal to some but getting back 1200.00 in exhaust parts made me very happy. not only do i not have to pay for another one. but i was able to sell the DP in the process and make some cash back.

point is, everytime ive called there shop one of the 2 has always been more than willing to help me out. i just wanted to say thanks. im starting to like this whole subaru community stuff.

thanks matt and tom

Nothing but good things to say. M@ and Tom are both awesome guys. Very flexible to work with, and incredible fair on pricing. I've brought my car there for a transmission replacement and timing belt service. Both turn around times were very fast. Hopefully will be back soon for an EWG and a tune

A+ I highly recommend

THanks a ton for the Stage 1 tune today M@. I had a ton of fun on the highway on the way home. Car pulls really nice.
I did some before and after numbers with the G Tech meter. 3rd gear pulls.
Before 179/190 hp/tq
After 200/221 hp/tq

21/31 increase.

For reference, the 09+ WRXs Ive baselined have done about 24xwhp and 25xwtq. Ive never tuned and dynod an unmodified car, but I have dynod one with only a downpipe and it did 285whp/315wtq at just under 20psi. Your car, being at 17psi, should fall in between.

glad you are enjoying it, best value ever.

HEY M@, are you guys now doing painting & minor body work out of the shop?
I have a new CF hood coming and want it painted before the CF looks like crap again ; )
The rear trunk & wing needs it also. I can bring the parts over in the van if you guys can sand & paint them.

What happened to your hood? You are supposed to be putting the car TOGETHER more, not taking it apart more!
