Pick up these books, read them cover to cover if you have no knowledge about the science and tuning of a gasoline combustion engine.

Also be sure to check out the romraider forums for Subaru specific tuning. Read all of the FAQs on that site. Once you have done that, I recommend reading through this.

Then it will be time to start tuning your own car. Don't be scared, tuning isn't some godly working that people make it out to be. Just remember, don't touch stuff if you don't fully understand what it does. Follow that rule and you won't run into any problems.

I started just this way almost 5 years ago now. I've put over 100k miles on my car since I started tuning it, and I've tuned maybe 10-15 of my friends cars, none of which have blown up .
Nice, thank you.

I understand engines. I'm a 91B (wheeled vehicle mechanic) in the Army National Guard. I just don't know anything about open source tuning. Maybe you could help me out one day? I pick up pretty quick and I was great at math when I was going to school. Do you go to the meets?
