    Subaru Tuner Info In WA

    I would like to get a protune on my 08 WRX. I was wondering if we could generate a list of reputable subaru tuners in WA? I live in the Everett area and would not mind driving a 50 mile radius for a good pro tune.

    well, Pacific Auto Inports tuner would be Tim.. Hear good things about him.. Personally though i would have Bobby do it @ Pre.. it's a bit of a drive but it's definitly worth it. I still need to get mine tuned so maybe we can do a road trip down to PRE and get both car's tuned. My car will be in the shop for about a week for repairs starting sometime soon here.

    Barely in that range is Pacific Import Auto, located in Tacoma. You'll have to look them up, they are not a vendor on here. That is the only place other than PRE in Oregon that I have first hand knowledge of and/or would suggest.

    PRE is down in Portland isn't it? I might venture down there, my wife has relatives down that way. What type of engine management are you running?

    Right now i'm running cobb stage 2 map via thier access port.. Don't really like the map all that much as it is really touchy between 1-3 thounds RPMS. Once you have a nice smooth custome map it's hard to use anything else. PRE is located down in portland.. It's about and 2 and half hour drive from seattle more or less.

    Bobby @ PRE is a pretty reputable tuner in your area, and is a vendor on here.

    I got tuned by Dominic Acia @ DTRacing (Lake Stevens, WA). He used to live out in my area, so every year, the local Subaru club flies him out here to tune our cars. All the guys in our local club would recommend his work to anyone.

    Would be cool to meet ya! I'm also Tuned by Bobby, I had Cobb AP but just recently sold it cause I went with Opensource instead. I had a bobby map on my Cobb and he tuned my forester a few weeks ago with opensource. Doesn't feel any different... still really smooth with great power band.

    if you'd like to talk to him or have any questions, you can call him at the shop. 503-619-0055

    Protune

    I just had my 06 WRX custom protuned by Trent at WorldOne as well. Installed Element DP first and so far I am very happy with the results. I have a lot of midrange power, very smooth and no boost creep. Trent does a great and thorough job IMO.

    Agreed on the smoothness and addition of mid range power, n/m the thing just runs great now. Very satisfied.

    I plan on taking it to Dominic @ DT Racing in Lake Stevens after I purchase the stage 2 parts. I talked with Dominic and he was very helpful...stand up guy.

    As far as the Olympia meet goes, that is a little far for me and my work schedule is rigorous.

    Tell him one of the UNYSOC guys sent you

    He has an RS that's faster than an '07 FPGreen STi + meth
