    TurboTrix

    hey guys what up? im going to have my wrx in a couple weeks and plan on having some minor mods. i was looking for shops in the area and the one i am really looking at is turbotrix. Precision is just to far away. 70 miles each way. turbotrix is only 45 minutes away. i am asking if anyone here has had good/bad encoutners with them and if they are a overall good shop to go to. thanks

    I cant vouch for turbo trix, never dealt with them. I say take the 70 mile ride to Precision, people drive like 4 hours to Precision just to get work done, even longer distances. They do excellent work, and I really wouldnt think of going anywhere else.

    I would whole-heartedly NOT recommend Turbotrix. I've been hearing a lot of bad stories about them in the past months. Take the extra time and go to Precision. I live in NNJ right outside NYC and I make the trip when I need to. I'd rather take extra time out of my day to know that things are being done right.

    70 miles = 70 min tops?

    i think you could be there in just over an hour. why not drivethe extra 15 min?

    you cant compare a time vs a mileage. that makes no sense!

    go to precision! (at least thatd be my choice from what ive read on the two afformentioned shops)

    If your gettin simple Mods done, Precision will have you in and out in no time. Call ahead and make an appointment, or simply talk to Rich and he'll tell ya how long things will take, hes a nice guy!

    Ditto what everyone else said. It is worth the trip. Even I have been down there.

    One thing you don't want to mess with is the quality of the work done to your car. It is brand new so you have an opportunity to do everything right from the beginning.

    Precision is the only place besides me to work on my WRX. Top notch company.
    I have also had work on my EVO done at Turbo Trix, and they can be a little hard to deal with, they are incredibly busy over there.
    My vote goes to Rich and the guys at Precision.
