well... rocketrally is the best place in lower mainland area do get your subie right. or you can try goto some local shops that tune civics and let them fiddle with your car. Rocketrally's reputation speaks for themselves.

Street Tuning


Street Tuning Now Available
Using the same techniques, products and attention to detail that has won over a dozen national and international championships, Rocket Rally is proud to offer a line of tuning services and products for street applications.

We are now accepting customers who demand the best products and services for their street cars, but who want uncomprimising advise and honesty when it comes to performance tuning. You won't find any body kits or mirror lights here, but what you will find are street legal products with a motorsport-derived heritage. Our products are designed to enhance street driving pleasure for vehicles with a strong rally heritage. Although our rally services are not exclusively limited to Subarus, you will find that our street tuning services are generally (but not exclusively) geared around Subaru performance soloutions.

Street Products
With that in mind, please browse the product sections, we have many products listed which are street tuning compatible. Products listed as MOTORSPORT USE ONLY are just that - not for street applications.

We work with our steet tuning customers to provide the best soloutions when it comes to aftermarket engine tuning and ECUs, intake/exhaust, brakes, suspension, steering, drivetrain, interior bits and other items which will make your car perform like it should. Some of our key lines of steet products include our own, Rocket-branded products, as well as several products of our street partners, including DBA, Goodridge, DMS, STi, EcuTek, PDE, Innovate, and more.

Our Customer Profile
Many of our street customers to date have been "the hardcore" - despite having no advertising, no web site, no published phone numbers and not much public presence, we've somehow managed to tune several dozen cars in BCs lower mainland in the few short months that we have been accepting street customers.

Join that group of satisfied customers, and call or email us for an initial street tuning consultation.
Unless what you mean by "street applications" is flashing lights and chrome spinnerz, I'm sure they can help you out.

We do of course work on Rally cars but a large percentage of our business is street and track applications. As I said, let me know what it is your friend wants to do and I'll tell you how we can help him/her out.

Rocket Rally from what I hear, has had really great success with their shop.
PDM still around? they carry subaru aftermarket parts, not sure if they have a mech shop?
Velocity?
Rev?
Goodluck with you/friends choice

really though, RR has the skills, and the tools to do your car right. Other shops may be able to help you, but RR has the ability to set the parts up properly. The new age imprezas need ecu work to take advantage of the new parts. If you don't tune, you're wasting your time.

Took my WRX wagon to PDM Racing in Burnaby last week - fast, friendly service, I would certainly go there again.

Bought STI pink springs from SubaruGenuineParts (ordered them on a Wednesday, got a call from UPS Thursday morning!), and front and rear Whiteline swaybars from PDM - had everything installed and an aligment at PDM.

Again, I send all North West USA customers and all western Canada customers to Rocket, why, have you seen how often he has mechanical DNF's when racing ? I can count them on one hand since he started ralling. That being said, they have to know what they are doing, and are definatly doing it well.

Rocket purchased a dyno dynamics dyno to fine tune any car to the best possible scenario, that is why they paid the extra coin for this dyno over other ones.

Go to:

Rocket Rally to get your street car running like a freakin' rally car.

or

Anywhere else to get your street car running like a, well, like a street car! But with some tightass bodykits, bling-bling rims and mad-props stickers! ...yo!

I don't know about Rocket Ralley... I brought my automatic 2.5RS in there for transmission repair and strangely I got back a manual 2.5RS... and even stranger it runs so well I think they probably just switched a car!

Seriously though, I really appreciate their knowledge, service, and friendly attitude. It's great!

Thumbs up for RR~

We appreciate all the customers we have had come up. One thing I really appreciate is that it seems all our customers become loyal customers which is even more appreciated as it makes us realize they appreciate our work. We're going to set up another Dyno day/Meet for spring time so we look forward to seeing you all up here in a big meet...(hopefully weather will be nice this spring). Thanks for all the kind words everyone it is much appreciated.
