    Very happy new owner and member

    Bought a WRX and few weeks ago and it ran amazingly fast, then the turbo packed in. Sweat running down my head i took it to a Subaru main dealer in Blackburn, 1 day and £269 later i had a full service , but no turbo.

    Did some research and found ScobbyClinic's website, a little less sweat was running now. Rang them up and spoke to Kev ( really nice guy ) and he said "Bring it over, we can sort it".

    Wow, so confident that i had no choice , booked it in for yesterday.

    Arrived and the attitude of Kev and his staff was fantastic.

    2 guys ( i think one was mark ) took my pride and joy for a run, 15 minutes later they came back and started taking my car apart. 45 minutes later it was done. The linkage from the waste valve had come off. Bloody hell i thought, these guys are amazing.

    Whilst i was waiting there was a bloke from a Scooby magazine that i had been chatting too whilst waiting, he suggested getting a Dyno run done, just to see what my car was putting out.

    I thought, why not, so mark ( i think ) got it strapped down and i went to watch. Flippin heck, he had to redo the dyno run because he did not believe what results the dyno came up with.

    230 torque and 310.5 bhp , i am a very happy chappy and i would highly recommend ScoobyClinic.
