Avoid Tuning Factory / Godspeed, Jorge & P&L motorsport in chicago is your *BEST* bet.

(or post back here when you get ripped off for an i told you so)

^^^Oakos is great...he is located north of Auburn Hills.

As for tuning...everyone seems to say Tuning Factory is hit or miss. Some people have good experiences. Others have bad experiences. I haven't had my car tuned there, but I have purchased parts from them. The service is friendly and great. They will price match too.

There are several others who have had their cars tuned at Payn Technologies in Troy. Both Tuning Factory and Payn can tune Utec's. The closest Protuner for Cobb's AccessPORT is Jorge in Chicago.

There is also Accurate Technologies (ATI) somewhere around town. I don't know what they have for parts, but they do a lot of different vehicle builds.

I'm looking for some parts like a blow-off valve, exhaust, intake etc...

I would just rather go to a shop opposed to ordering something online and not getting exactly what I need.

I'm about 740 miles away from Kalamazoo

Yah our stock intakes support up to 400hp! spooled u need to search search and search before you start buying parts. You own a STi, you cant **** it up or ill kill u. hah anyway do some research or else you will get some tough love around here and get called an idiot and a dumbass and i think you want to avoid that.

Anyways oakos would be a good place to go around your area.

PAYN PAYN PAYN! Oh and did I mention PAYN!

Just got mine tuned by Tom at Payn Technologies and I love every second of it! He can get parts if needed but doesn't stock anything.

For parts I would say Oakos Automotive at oakos.com. Always good prices, fast and free shipping. Since you are in michigan too, everything gets to you next day as long as you order before 3pm I think

For service I would go with Payn Technologies.

Anyone have current contact info for Payn? I can't seem to find him on the web anymore...

The Payn Technologies website is dead. Is he still in Troy?
