    Welcome Whittney!

    The furthest north shop I know of that is worth a damn is all the way in boulder... I don't know where in fort fun u're located but it's anywhere from a half hour to nearly an hour for you. It's called Super Rupair.

    You can also start a few threads on here to find out what other people's opinions on brands and products are. Sometimes that's a better route, because shops make different profits on different parts, and can be slightly biased.

    as stated above (or below depending on your settings) super rupair is awesome for tuning. However if your looking for parts and labor, check out auto trends in ft collins on north college. They can get just about any part for a great price and their labor rates are crazy low. Plus they are all good guys and do quality work along with great customer service. They wont charge you for any more than their actually working and they will do any diagnostics for free. If you want any more info on them pm me and i can give you my personal experiences along with some contact info.

    As for tuning, stick with harvey at super rupair

    There's also Mac Autosport in Parker. They're sort of hit and miss. They charge a boat load for installs though. I have a friend who recently got tuned there for E85 on his STi and had them do the injector install and a larger TMIC and his bill was $3600. Tell me that's not insane. And no, he didn't get two tunes or anything crazy. I think they put an intake on there for him too but seriously $3600???!?!? Their tuner Nick is hit and miss though some people rave about him while others say no one is better than Harvey for Subarus. I had a bad experience with Nick. Couldn't afford to dump any more money into my car so I never made it up to Harvey but I wish I had. Might not have left such a bad taste in my mouth about tuning. I also hear Revolutions down in the springs are good too.

    Whatever you do, stay away from Racing Trenz or whatever that place is.

    Most use either all-seasons year round, or have dedicated summer/winter tires

    I'm selling a turbo timer if you want one

    Otherwise, Mac Autosport sells a bunch of stuff and so does Super Rupair I think.
