A big part of finding the right place depends on your engine management. What are you running?

MAC autosport in Parker has an AWD in-ground dyno. I dont think they are too experienced at actually tuning yet though. Don't quote me on that though.

I know there are diff. oppinions but Racing Trenz on E. Evans can actually do a helluva job on Subaurs. They have experience as my friend's wagon runs 12's on Greddy E-Manage tuned by Trenz. Give them a shot. I'd like to see another major player in the CO. Subaru community. Just an oppinion. Take it as you want but stop by, they are truley nice guys that are looking to reach out to the Subaru community.
OK I'm done.

Do NOT go to Phat n Low!!! I went to school at UNC and have heard many horror stories about that place. That and they are partial to Honda's anyway. But I didn't even take my heavily moded Integra there when I had it in school. Oh, and I don't think they have a Dyno.

There is a shop in Colorado that specializes in Subies, but I don't know where it's at. I haven't heard anything about them for a while, but if memory serves me correctly it's called JC Sports. Anyone else heard of those guys?

JC Sports is long gone (what... over two years now), PDM is now gone (a re-birth compony of JC Sports), Suby Sports from the Springs has been gone for a while now(Braiden still does some side work out of his house). Im not really sure who we have now that is dedicated to only subarus.... Flat4Engineering out of Mike Shaw Subaru I guess... or your fellow subie owners

Autosport Werks in Broomfield would be the place to help you tune it on the AWD dyno, but you'd need to pay extra to use their wideband O2 sensor

A great place and my sponser is Auto Trim and Design in Fort Collins on Horsetooth by Blockbuster. The guys there are extremely knowlegeable about Suby's. Not only that but they are Colorado's ONLY Prodrive authorized dealer. Give them a try, they don't have a dyno, but other than that if they cant help you I'll print out this post and eat it. Good Luck..and by the way...STAY AWAY from Phat and Slow errr low.

what if I have a wide band O2 sensor? Damn maybe I should just tune it my self.. I am just afraid of fudging it up.. at least if someone else fudges it up, I can blame them My friend has a wide band that has 45 minutes of data logging..so I think I will be able to do it.. I might have to get a knock detector so can hear the pinging.. My exhaust is kinda loud so it is hard to hear sometimes. Where is autowerks loacted in broomfield? do they have a website?

You are thinking of Marc Rameriz. I am not sure, but I think he may be tuning his own car. His dyno sheets are from Mac Autosport, but if you read his posts it sounds like he does all the actual tuning himself and just goes there for the dyno time. He did get some of his parts from Joe at Flat4/Mike Shaw. Bret Carter works there as well and he is a very good mechanic. I am sure that one of those two guys will be able to steer you right if you give them a call at the dealership...
