About the Protuning? Haven't they only been doing them for like five minutes? How many stories could there be?

Edit: Aren't you the guy with the reverse manifold? I thought you were an Agile customer, don't they do Protunes?

Could you please expand on this? I understand the Dyno part, but horror stories with Protuning? The reason I ask is because I do the Protuning and haven't had an unsatisfied customer yet.

Thanks

no horror stories from the protuning, sorry for that comment, but from other customers i have heard some horror stories, i was up there about a year ago to get some work done, and two bolts were left out of my downpipe and one off of my up pipe and didnt realize it till three months later, and also one of the bolts had to be but off cause it was stripped so bad...

Wow, I know they have/had a policy where if you bought the gaskets from them and then had a leak/problem in that area, they would fix it for free. What happened when you brought it back? Even if you didn't buy the gaskets there, I can't imagine that Rich didn't take care of it for you.

If you dont mind the drive, TDC Tuning in Concord, NH is amazing. Jon is certified w/ Cobb (beta tester too), and i know he works with water injection, and im sure he has done alky.

do you think maybe the bolts fell off? I can't see them leaving off bolts or you driving around and not noticing a major leak.Didn't they drive your car when they where done? Like oppositelock said they have the leak free garentee so i dont know why you would take it back. Everybody does make mistakes and if you had a problem I bet Rich would have fixed it. I have been going there for years and can say i have never had a problem and never saw anyone there with any. I doubt anyone has done as much work on subarus as precision.

^^ It's a personal preference. If someone messed up his car (or it seemed like it), one may not wanna go back to that person/shop. After all these years, well now you've seen someone with a problem, lol. It's not too hard to believe.

i understand everyone makes mistake, but a car is not supposed to leave a shop with missing bolts, im sorry but there is no way in hell the bolts fell off...and no i didnt hear a leak, i didnt realize it till 3 months later when i swap turbo backs with a friend, i guess when you want things done right you should do them yourself, i have learned the hard way with my past two cars, i just dont have the time i used to

I hear you, if you want things done right the first time you do have to do them. . Good luck finding a place to do your protune

I'am still shocked that you didn't notice a uppipe leak with a bolts missing

there is 5 total nuts/bolts on the down pipe, i think it was one bolt and one nut that were missing, and there was a nut missing on my up pipe and no i dont think it ever leaked, if it did it wasnt enough for me to notice, i didnt notice till i swapped turbo backs with someone
