Im going to say they are all about $75 an hr. I could be wrong. Call a few of the shops and see. I also know kevin at GT has good flat rates. Give him a call.

I've had everything done ther from my turbo timer, TBE to my VF34 upgrade with injectors and fuel pump.

Chris is a great subaru tech + he's the crew chief for the Gravel Crew. Oscar takes really good care of all his customers, nice guy great customer skill and not pushy at all
Matt is their new sales guy and all I have to say about him is WOW always has all the answers and willing to help and find the answers to all my questions.

Great tint place. My friend took his civic there, and told me about it, so then I went there about a week after he went. They did an amazing job, looks really good. The owners are very nice guys, no bull****, they give you a good price, I got 120 for my all my back windows.

Which one of these shops are conversion capable? I am looking into doing a GC8 - STi conversion. Does Aerosim still do these? Do they still do the wide body kits?

not to bash subaru independent in north hollywood. But i just called them about doing a 7500 mile service which is 60 buck by the way. They ask what model i had and i told them wrx...they quickly said they dont work on wrx's. It sort of blew my mind. He said because of the aftermarket parts that many Wrx's have, i had to plead with him that all i had on my car was an axleback, finally he gave me the price on how much a 7500 mile service would be. Not very good customer relations to WRX owners if i say so myself.

Talk to Ali or Brian at Machine Tune in Gardena. Ali just did my clutch and he's going to do a compression/leakdown/vac leak test for me. They're really honest, no-BS guys.
