    Check with ICY Racing/Phoenix Performance in Phoenixville.

    They have a pretty good rep.

    I live right near you and I was thinking it'd be worth driving a little for a good tune. I wouldn't want to take my baby to some place/person that wasn't reputable unless I personally knew them. I also don't want to drive 6 hours to get it done...but if I have to drive a couple of hours to make sure I get the most out of my car AND it's still a very reliable (will not cause issues for my engine) I think it's worth it. $500 is a big chunk of $ and a tune, IMHO, is not the place I want to try and cut corners.

    That being said, Agile Tuning, Precision Tuning, and Verocious Motorsports are the three closest tuners that I know of that have good reputations. I think I will be going to Agile for my tune since they have a good rep for tuning 07's...

    ICY Phoenix...nice bunch of people from my limited interaction with them, but I don't believe they do tuning (I could be wrong about this). I believe Bill had his alignment done there, so maybe they tune as well...?

    NONSENSE!!! I don't even have a tune, yet, so I have no experience! lol I'm sure you know more than I on the topic.

    ...I had started doing some research and asking around, and this is what I had come up with so far, that's all. I apologize if I came off like I had first-hand knowledge of the subject.

    My WRX's mods were almost all suspension/brake related...

    + you're closer & did research.

    February 2014 update:

    Kurt left Phoenix several months ago. Based on a recent negative service issue, I can no longer recommended Phoenix.
