    Tuners in Maine?

    There has to be some people in Maine with a tuned subie. Where did you get your tuning work done? I am just curious because I wanted to possibly look into doing a tune (probably stage I) after the winter.
    Thanks!

    Don't know of any shops in ME. Make a drive down to DSG outside of Boston; they'll set you up right.

    Stage 1 is also a pretty safe level to look into tune options that don't involve a dyno.

    Cool thanks for the info. I was thinking that it might be able to be done without a dyno, and if I do go that route there is a place called Coachworks right near me in Maine where the guys are very knowledgable about all things cars, but I was thinking I should bring it somewhere that specializes in tuning since they will be messing with my baby!
    Thanks again guys!

    Like I said, stage 1 is quite safe to do without a dyno/road tune. There are those who would say it would be a waste of money to do so just for a stage 1 tune. However, if you have the money, of course the optimal route is always to get as custom a tune as possible.

    Definitely don't want to be wasting money! I appreciate the thoughts.Who knows, by next spring maybe this will turn from a stage I to a DP with a stage II. Stranger things have happened

    You want someone who specializes in Subarus. You don't need a dyno, a simple road tune would be sufficient.

    Personally, unless your plan is to go the AP route and run their S1/S2 base maps, I would hold off until you can pick up a downpipe, and go straight to a custom S2 reflash.
