Stephen came through for me again, was still able to check my logs, check and make sure everything is still running fine. Awesome stuff.

Ordered an avcs bulkhead harness and some various gaskets from them. Extremely quick with communication, and kept me in the loop the entire time. Will do business with them again in a heartbeat!

I was looking for a tune on a budget for my Forester. Due to the great reviews I contacted Stephen. He was very patient, answered all my questions and sent over maps quickly. I think we did 7 map revisions until Stephen was happy with my logs. A+ service would recommend to anybody that has an access port. Literally night and day going from an OTS map to Stephen's.

I ordered the dual armrest for my wife's 2015 Wrx limited from these folks. I mistakenly selected the JC color which happened to be out of stock anyway. Stephen Clarke contacted me to offer me the MG instead and it was an exact match. He saved me the hassle of having to wait, install the wrong color, etc. Thank you very much guys. It's awesome to see such care and detail even for a small $200 order

Just here to post about my recent experience with iA. I enjoyed the service and constant communication. I also love the tune and plan on coming back to them for future tuning needs. I highly recommend them!

I ordered a fuel damper for my 2007 wrx wagon. Got the damper ordered and the order confirmation immediately followed. The next day I got the shipment confirmation with tracking#. Damper arrived very quickly with USPS which means minimal down time for my DD subie.
Also expected this to be just the damper but to my surprise it came with fuel lines and clamps.
Will definitely do business with them in the future.

I just want to share my most positive E-tuning experience with IA Performance.
A few months ago my car was really in a sorry state-lots of problems[stalling, crappy idle, surging during acceleration and etc..]. That's when I decided to look for a tuner. Problem was, there are no reliable tuners where i'm at, I didn't have an AP in that not being in the US it does not support non USDM cars. Other alternative was ECUTek-but I scratched that option as it's unreasonably expensive. The only option left to me was Open Source tune. Fortunately, I bumped across some thread here at NASIOC about IA Performance and I gave it a try. I'm really glad that I did. It's the best thing I've ever done to my car. Stephen of IA Performance is very patient, very professional, and does not stop fine tuning the maps until everything is dialed in. I'm genuinely grateful to Stephen for his work and would definitely use his excellent skills again as soon as I get more parts into my car. Thanks Stephen my car drives like a champ!!

2011 STi Sedan


I wanted to add a review of Stephen e-Tunes.
I drive 2011 STi.
He was very prompt and fast with updates.
We tried various settings that made me happy and him feel safe.
It took 9 revisions.
I have to say being able to do 4th gear WOT pulls makes tuning go better.

He also was following behind a really bad tune I had before.

Also I would add that my car idles at 650. Also when I start from a roll it does not feel like car is going to stall.

He was so professional that he mailed me an invoice of the purchase and some stickers.

I will recommend him to anyone I know.

Stephen is the man! Ordered Cobb 1000cc injectors for my 2014 wrx and he had them to my door in 2 days! (I live in NY). Im also in the middle of a 93tune and his turn around time is great, I get a new map everyday. Great customer service, and is extremely professional. As soon as I'm done with this map ill be having him do an e85 map! AAAAA+++++

Just chiming in to add to the sea of positive reviews for Stephen. It took us 25 different maps and 4 or 5 months but the car runs amazing now. Seriously night and day from when we started. The base AP tune has nothing on an IA performance tune.

Add another one to the satisfied customer list for Stephen!

Did a version 8 swap into my WRX, ordered the AVCS kit from IAP. Stephen was able to diagnose and help me re-pin a wire I'd put in backwards, as well as provide advise on how to do the valve cover gasket so the stupid thing would stop leaking (went through 2 gaskets, not fun).

Then, finally, the tuning process. A semi-local tuner was horrid about communication and scheduling, so finally 'the heck with this' and I asked Stephen if he did version 8 tuning via open source. The base map Stephen gave me in comparison to the base map from the other tuner was night and day different. The car felt much, much more driveable off boost. Through about 8 different maps, Stephen got the car tuned conservatively (it feels anything but conservative) to his liking and I'm extremely satisfied with the overall process. As a sidenote, Stephen's availability was, for the most part, immediate. If I had any questions for him, he'd usually answer the phone and be extremely attentive.

I highly recommend Stephen and IAP.

I'd like to post and say I recently purchased an E-tune from Stephen at iaperformance. The tune is amazing. The car seems to pull harder in 3rd gear. I can feel the difference. The customer service is great. He walks you through it step by step. I would recommend Stephen at iaperformance to everyone. Thanks again, Charles

I called in, asked some questions, got detailed and correct answers with a calm and good attitude. I ended up buying some parts. He even called me back and mentioned a sale price on another part of same quality and saved me a few bucks.

I will be ordering from them again. I was speaking with Steven? on the phone. Thank you again!

I can't rate Stephen and IAP highly enough. The overall timeline stretched a little, but it was in no part due to IAP. We encountered some knocking issues above 5000rpm and he helped me through several diagnoses and parts to support not only fixing the knock, but further fine tuning. Parts proposed were priced competitively and relevant; definitely would recommend this as a one-stop solution for long-distance tuning.

Thank you!

Stephen did an awesome job helping me get my JDM 205 running perfectly! I even had to take a 4 month break due to work and travel after 6 revisions and he picked right back with the last 6 without a hiccup. I'm really glad I chose IA Performance for my first tune and will happily go back again and again.

Also, great AVCS wiring kit! It is worth every penny since it is so easy to do and eliminates all the headaches of trying to figure out where everything goes and splicing up a JDM harness.

Great work and great service!

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to share my super positive experience with IA Performance. When it comes to customer service, IA Performance and Stephen Clark are one of the best! I ordered a V3 Accessport, DW Injectors and an E-tune from them and Stephen showed nothing but patience, kindness and professionalism throughout the whole process. Through the countless delays (which were all due to problems on my end) Stephen was very understanding and flexible.

In regards to the tune, the process was simple and his instructions were very clear. Every time I sent a datalog to him he returned it the next day or just a little later if he was away travel tuning. Often, I would see that he sent it later in the evening after business hours which, to me, seemed like he was working a very long day. He is very dedicated to his work and it shows in his tunes. My car was previously open source tuned for high HP numbers with an unbearable power band for daily driving. With some different parts recommended by Stephen, my power band is smoother and I enjoy driving my car even more!

Stephen and IA Performance to me is the gold standard when it comes to customer service and I am very pleased to have worked with them. I look forward to working with them in the future!

A+ SERVICE and tuning from Stephen at IA performance after having my longblock built I had a break in tune from Stephen and a 20 PSI winter driving stock turbo tune. Runs great with no knock. Would recommend to anyone looking for a better tune then a OTS cobb map. Stephen worked hard to get me the map revisions quickly and was not satisfied until the map was perfect. Best customer service I had with the entire build and will definitely continue to do my tunes through him.

I've done 4 different etune maps on my car and have been totally satisfied with each one. First time after the rebuild, 2nd time after fuel upgrades and ported stock turbo, 3rd time for 20g turbo upgrade and the last one was for e85. Car feels so good at 20-21 psi! New engine now has 20k miles all on Stephens etunes! I'd recommend Stephens E-tunes to anyone! When I upgrade more parts im definitely coming back.

Default Awesome E-tuner

At first I wasn't sure i wanted to have an E-tune, but after some research on the internet I found that it was worth it. My car was running perfectly fine , but had some modification I wasn't sure of, so I asked some of the E-tuner I found on NAISOC and had great review. IA performance respond rapidly and was very professional !

All the process was rapid and the final result is a lot more than I was expected ! I recommend him to everyone !

I ordered speaker spacers. They arrived quickly via USPS. The product was perfect in fitment. It came with the perfectly sized screws + additional screws and whatnot. As a naturally bitter person, I'd like to find fault with the product or service delivered by IA Performance and cannot do so. This makes me very angry. Please fail me in the future so I can write a scathing review.

'06 STi
World Rally Blue :)


Earlier in the summer I picked up an '06 STi that had an intake, turbo back exhaust, ebcs, PnP exhaust manifold, and an up-pipe installed. The car was tuned for the parts, but after datalogging it was apparent that the tune was no bueno.

I searched and searched on here for E-Tune reviews and saw Stephen at IAP made a lot of people happy so I checked out his website and took advantage of an E-tuning sale he had going on. We exchanged a few emails and after I sent my payment I received my base map the next morning. After four revisions the car is running perfectly and Stephen was always just an email away if I had a question or concern and always answered them no matter how nooby or trivial they were.

If you need an E-tune I highly recommend Stephen. He'll get your car running perfectly.
