A Review Worth Reading!

Now I know every story has 2 sides, but in this review you get to hear both...and that's the only reason I'm sharing. Although most problem with someone's car is their own doing, there's certainly things in this review that are in no way subjective and flat out the WRONG way to do business and handle situations. Hope this helps someone out there!

Yea, that's a little crazy! That's why I'm so wary of tuning my car. When I finally make the jump, ill drive the 4+ hours to BrenTuning to make sure it's right lol.

Yea I'm the same way, I'm leery about getting a tune from a shop. Some times they do great and sometimes not. Its a crap shoot, roll the dice and pray. The AP is great because so many people have used the OTS tunes which is a little more comforting, IMO. Especially because its the same tune used over by different cars and people with positive reviews. I feel I would really have to know the people doing the work on my car before handing it over.

Cobb ots maps aren't really good long term. You should find a reputable tuner and get a pro tune Andy!

Thats why I always do my own installs. That and I save money that way. I do realize not everyone is comfortable with doing all their own work. For that reason you should do your research and read reviews. I learned that the hard way with my first tuner (not nearly as hard as this guy). Second time around I researched for weeks and am very happy with the decision I made.

Yes I know. I will eventually. I live by Innovative tuning. They're supposed to be really good with Subaru's but I need to do some good research before making a decision.
