Default Looking for help

I am looking for a tunner in the northeast Tennessee area or with in a reasonable area. I have built toons of rust tangs and v8 muscle cars but I am at dead loss when it come to these cars lol. I got a 2002 wrx at a great price brand new engine installed from a stealer ship not sure of the mods that has been done but know the car has headers turbo back up and down from turbo xs (only reason I know is its stamped on it lol) and an cold air from k&n some kind of cheap ass hid set up that I don't even have high beams and some kind of high pitched police like whine coming while the turbo boosts (from what I have read seems to be some sort of leak) I have searched the forums over and I am in information overload. The car is an automatic couple of reason for that 1 great price 2 I am medical discharged from the army and have I lot of nerve damage in my arm and a total knee replacement so need something I don't have to shift all the time. I am not looking to shatter any records or go crazy just want something with decent power and reliable. Sorry for being such a nubbie I have found some parts for sale on the classifieds here as well as other places just don't want to buy stuff I don't need or can't install. Like I said I have done tons of American muscle cars I am just at a loss with this thank you guys in advance for helping even if you don't know a tunner post some ideas

Hey Brandon. Not sure up around the Johnson City Area, but down around Knoxville there are a couple of places to have your car looked at and tuned. You would be wise to get it checked over while you are still learning about these cars for sure. They are a different game than V8 muscle! I am relatively new to these cars as well, but a lot of guys down here have some really good setups and know some people. Go to the Southest Region Forums, then look for the KSOC (Knoxville Subaru Owners Club) thread and sound off. They will get you pointed to the right folks.

Don't go too hard on it until you take it to someone that knows Subarus for a checkup at least. They are a bit touchy when it comes to tunes and stuff, as with most all turbo cars. Good luck with your car, and have fun with it man. You picked the right car for fun!

If it makes you feel any better, I drive an automatic too.
