Default Where to tune in the Salt Lake/Provo area?

Soo to start I'm new in the area, and just bought a 2011 WRX hatch. I have also been out of the "game" of Subaru's for awhile. Before I moved to Brazil, I lived in Texas and drove a (mostly) built 2002 WRX, the car that made me fall in love with Subaru in the first place. I'm familiar with tuning in Texas (awdtuning.com was my go to guy) but here in Utah I am absolutely clueless as to where I should go. I have searched the forums, but never found what I was looking for. If this is in the wrong area or is a subject that was beat to all hell, Just link me to the right direction and close this sucker up.

My question in a nutshell: Where is the GO-TO place for a PERFECT tune for a reasonable price? I'm obviously looking for opinions and feedback as to why.

I appreciate the help, and look forward to meeting some fellow subie drivers here in Utah.

A lot of people have been happy with 907bum's tunes. He's a local member who has a pretty good reputation.

There's also medamullet who is also a local member who has been tuning for a while now with no complaints I've heard of.

Guess you'll have to weigh out the two options. Zip Tie is about 450 for a dyno tune, complete with your bragging sheet. Jesse comes proper with applicable street tuning, he has a very well versed knowledge of subaru's and his pricing is bit more down to earth.

Jesse (907bum) has really been great to sort out my highly modded LegacyGT.

I've been through 3 turbos, 2 motors and countless other fuel changes with Jesse tuning for all the different scenarios. I like that he tells me when the car is making power in a good, conservative way and when I tell him to push it further and the tune now makes more heat than power and should be backed off.

He is a fantastic street tuner and has access to dyno tuning if you prefer. He is by far the best tuner I've dealt with, out of 5 different guys to tune my car.
