    Need a NOVA Tuner - suggestions?

    Anybody know of a good and trusted tuner in the Northern Virginia area? As close to Fairfax County as possible.

    I keep seeing PTuning (Performance Auto Parts Warehouse, Installation, and Dyno Tuning | PTUNING.COM (877-788-6464)) from a search - are they good? What should I look for and how can I tell if they're good or not?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've heard nothing good about PTuning and their Subaru tuning.

Thanks in advance for the insight!

    Thanks, guys. I just found out about Mach V over on NASIOC as well.

    So, it looks like my choices are IAG, Agile and Mach V. Mach V is the closest so I may just go there.... unless someone has an opinion on those 3 choices...

    I have no firsthand experience with them, so I don't feel comfortable explaining what happened. I just know both people who have had their cars tuned there (one of which being an employee) ended up with issues.

    I would go with Agile / IAG over the others listed.
