    It is far from over I expect, which is a huge shame.

    Armin...hows W1 holding out? Enough to weather, or too soon to tell?

    Did Greddy just shut the doors or can you still buy their products?

    We are weathering the storm right now. It's definitely not as good as it has been in the past. We've been doing a lot of engine builds lately (both for customers with blown motor or customers who want to to go big power) which has been helping out quite a bit, but we've still got some other things in the works. I agree with you though, I think this whole situation is far from over.

    As for Greddy, they are still very much doing business and we still get products from them no problem. That said, there hasn't been a huge demand for Greddy products lately either

    that sux @$s those guys are some of the best subaru tuners on the continent

    it makes you wonder how long it will before other BIG name tuners fall through the cracks too (AMS, Cobb, etc.)


    this is bad for the tuner world.....
