Default Tune in Chicago?

Hi.
Got a 2011 outback sport AT.
Just purchased my 3" pipe for the hybrid intake and would like to get a tune thereafter. Is anyone on the board capable of performing this in Chicago, or can anyone recommend a reputable Subie shop around town?

Thanks

I believe Matt from Benchmark tuning is out there, as well as Jorge from P&L.

Do not put the hybrid intake on until the day of the tune, it leans the car out horribly.

If you have access to a tactrix cable, I e-tune if you interested. You would save $2-300 if you could borrow one.

Recommendations for P&L for sure, but also DS1 motorsports.

I got an eBay special. Need to do the test fitting, but it seems to line up well.

I definitely won't install until it's ready for the tune.

I called GRD Tuning and P&L yesterday. They are out by o'Hare and will do a custom tune on the dyno for $375-$450. I'm contemplating this, but it's a lot of bread.

Thanks Mikey. I'll look into a tactrix cable. Not sure if the 2011 base maps are available on Open Source.

Holy Jesus thats expensive as hell!!

I can contact DShultz tonight and see if he has the definitions. If he does not, he can make them.

A base map is not needed, I start off of a stock map.

N/A Tuning special is $100 per car, and 3-5 revs is all it will take if your interested.
