Default I need a reliable Pro Tune for Access Port

I just need a good number of people who will recommend me to get my 03 wrx wagon pro tuned. I'm pretty much somewhat new to the subaru forums. I just need people to post up +1 on the name.

Example: +1 Dyno motorsports

I've heard rumors about shops and I just want to make sure that the shops are honest of what they do.

I've had my mr2 tuned by PFSupercars, they are real good cause they are the only ones I know around East Coast that pro tunes PowerFC. But they are really costly. Cost me about $1000 for my mr2 to be pro tuned. So i'm just expecting same amount or less. Thanks for looking

Edit: Yeah, that too. ^

IAG or Agile. I went with Agile because of time constraints and have zero complaints.

Turbo XS in my opinion
Took his time on my tune when I had my 07 STi and made sure it was safe in all areas.
Gonna let them tune my 11 STi in the future.

Turbo xs
Iag performance
Ams performance- side note Ams is 450 for the initial tune no set hour limit, and then any tune after is just 50 an hour which I liked because say you get your initial tune with just turbo back and intake, then you later just wanna add ewg you can and not spend another arm and a leg for a tune.

Only 1 place.

+151,487,265,102 for Jorge at IAG!

Hands down, IMO, the best tuner for AP. Most of his tunes are conservative and fun!

Ams is in Gaithersburg right by turbo xs and Andrewtech their tuner Dan takes his time and makes solid tunes, they do a lot of evo's but did my old bugeye and many other subarus. My car was being finicky and took 7 hours and I didn't get charged extra at all.

AMS, IAG, Agile, and TurboXS are all great places! You will be more then happy with any of them so call around, get some prices, see who is closer, and go get your tune!

TurboXs FTW. Been getting tuned by them for 3+ years. Nothing but the best customer service. Tunes have been nothing but the best. Stock turbo, stock motor, bolt ons, pump gas, 20psi my car went 12.20@110 on all season tires. I'm now on my built motor at 10k miles on it. Several track passes, I beat the hell out of it daily. Not to mention the power my car mades. Car drives like it's stock.

Of course AGILE +1 ....but iag, Mach v ....I would also recommend. Agile has done all three of my protunes including my RSTI which I should be picking up Friday from their shop.

Kind of a poopy tune at TurboXS, so I'm not going to them the endorsement. AMS did my stage 2 tuning a long long time ago (back when they had...mike?) and it was rock solid. IAG and Agile are fantastic shops to deal with, too.

Again, I have yet to hear a complaint about Mikey or Dux tunes. They get **** straight. I have no idea where most people got fond of paying for tweeks after the initial tune, or comming out of pocket for support after the fact.

Digging deep to throw cash at the tuner for the inital tune and then for things that should have been straight the first time?

Again, either STI Mikey or Dux
