Yeah it's true. Almost no activity here. Could be worse, go to legacygt.com Southcentral forum. Nothing for over a month.

Hello Houston!

I've just recently moved to Houston, from Anchorage, Alaska and was checking out the TXIC forums and wanted to say Hi and introduce myself . Do y'all have a preferred shop you take your subies to get work done? Looking to do some suspension upgrades: lowering springs and Cusco plates, front / rear sways. Any information will be most appreciated.

Welcome to satan's taint


Another vote for Kozmic in Houston, all around import performance shop.

Engine Logics in the SW is also solid for tuning, haven't heard about anything but tuning so can't comment on other services.

Heyo! Welcome to humidity central!

I'd also say Kozmic for the stuff you want done. Engine Logics is great for a tune as well.

I'm a new fella who wanted to see if I could spark any new joins for TXIC, so been running around with the decals on the subie. Gotten a few comments, but mostly from current NASIOC guys along the lines of "HOLY BANANAGRAMS BATMAN! I didn't think anyone visited Nasioc anymore!" heh. Still fun when other people try to figure out what TXIC could stand for.

Hey guys, i know their aren't as many on this thread as their use to be, but is there anyone from Austin on here?

I'm interested in a recommended local mechanic for a possible clutch replacement.

Paul I'm not sure how up to date this list is, I seen a few shops in Austin, but it couldn't hurt to search these shops on google for reviews or wait for some members to chime in.

Good luck on the clutch .

Where do I get my Subaru worked on? Subaru shops/techs in Texas http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1919333

K guys need y'alls opinion on the cost to install lowering springs and an alignment.

Just got a quote at a shop 5hrs to install the springs and front camber Cusco plates with alignment for 700? Does that sound about right?

is that just labor or parts included? seems a bit high, but i installed coilovers on my own so ive never had a shop quote me, but i think springs would be easier.

i just paid $100 at a reputable shop for my alignment about 1 month ago, so if its just labor thats about $150 per spring install. i would get some more quotes.

Yes that's just for labor! I will provide the springs and Cusco plates :-(

Its 575 for labor to install springs and 125 for the alignment.
