Default Where to get 2013 STi tuned

I have a 2013 STi with 3000 miles on it. I will soon have the AEM intake, AP, Nameless TBE, and EBCS. I have done email tunes in the past on my WRX with torqued performance, and that was great. Now I am looking for a pro tune on my new STi.

I wanted to know if it was worth it to go out to P&L to get tuned. I live in NW Ohio (Toledo) and there is Pure Tuning in this area that also has a mustang dyno. Both are about the same price. I will have to take a vacation day to drive out to P&L on a Monday though. Any thoughts?

Take off the AEM, then get it tuned. And why do you need EBCS for basically a normal stage 2 setup?

You're gonna love your turbo back setup. I have nameless perf tbe as well. The quality is amazing. I got injectors and a fuel pump put in today and will be getting tuned for E85 tomorrow. Can't wait! Best of luck w your tune. Go onto cobbtuning and see where there is a tuner in your area

Do you know what you're talking about?

The intake doesn't hurt if he's getting it tuned. It's not really worth the money but whatever

The EBC is good because it holds boost better, and allows for better adjustment of said boost

IMO you cant go wrong out at p&l. I would definately look into the other tuner before I considered using them. Just because someone has a dyno doesnt mean anything. Me if I had a brand new STi, I wouldnt trust the tune to just another shop.

The ebcs I have along with the aem was left over from my last car. Why not put the parts on. The tuner in my area is a cobb tuner that deals with many subarus. That was what I wanted to know, what people who have used them thought.

I guess I could spend even more money on injectors, pump, e85 and more but I dont know if its really worth it. I think I'm fine with what I have.

E85 is well worth it. People are putting up numbers of 335-385 whp and over 400 torque. It's like 30-50 hp over pump. IMO if you're gonna get a protune, might as well get the e85 tune. It's like 100 bucks more. The pump and inj well that is some money. 515 for 1100cc inj w pnp adapters and the fuel pump is another 140 plus install. It ls safe and runs cooler. I'm not trying to spend your money bro but do what u can afford. My tuner is great. I wouldn't let anyone else touch my car but my tuner/perf shop! Good luck.

If the aem is a short ram "hot air intake" then you are better off leaving it uninstalled.

The AEM is in the fender and I was told that e85 can be risky depending on the season.

DM,

E85 can be "Risky" if you tune to the max AFR on Winter E85 (grade 3 which is normally E-70) and then fill your tank with straight summer (grade 1 E79-85) and run lean. By a tester to see what fuel your getting or just wait for summer grade, tune for that and then be comfortable that you would just be running rich in the winter. Or switch back to 93 for the winter like I intend to do

Hope that helped.

Ha, that's exactly what I was going to say (about the EBCS). I had a stage 2 tune with the "stock" boost controller and then got it retuned with the ebcs, and I can say it made a difference. Now, if you ever go external wastegate, dump the ebsc and get a manual bc.

To the OP, it's been a while since I lived in Chicagoland, but you may want to do some research on who the good open source road tuners are in Chicagoland. We have an excellent local open source tuner here in Minnesota that specializes in Subaru's. He has tuned two of my cars and provided very customized tunes for what I wanted, at a very reasonable price. Just another idea for you!
