Default 2.5 hybrid sounds terrible?

I just got my o4 wrx back from the shop. They installed a 2.5 shortblock, and im currently running stage 2 on my access port. The shop says the reason its running so bad is because it needs a tune. It almost sounds as bad as it did when i took it in there with a spun bearing. does this sound right or should i take it back to the shop and tell them to check over it again?

It should NOT sound like it did when it had a spun bearing. Timing might be off.

gtfo,the shop didn't bother to pro tune and just gave you back the car. I wouldn't even risk driving it anymoreuntil you get it properly tuned.
