What up everyone?! I just moved to the Sacramento area (near Yuba City) and I am trying to find a good place to get my WRX parts from and get my ride worked on. I am from the Phoenix/Tucson area and we have awesome shops that specialize in Subaru tuning like DynoComp and Vivid Racing. Is there anything like that out here? Anywhere with an AWD dyno/tuning capability?

Also, is is there any kinda of Subaru Clubs or Groups that meet up around here?
So far i have only seen like maybe 3 WRX/STI's around here...

I asked the guys at the Subaru Dealer in Sac and they said that there is only 1 or 2 places in the area that either do awd dyno or AP tuning(if you have one that is). Other than that I think Davis is the closest place there is......though I do know a shop in Santa Rosa but that is a bit longer of a drive than Davis.


Also only seen a few STi/WRX out here. One at Exec airport and another round town but they're both black(lucky me). Most Rex's near Tahoe ######. Maybe should check up there fer a shop?

DBTUNED is a great shop. Paul is the owner and he worked on my STI a few times including tuning it. He has a awd dyno. I have heard nothing but good thing about dbtuned. He is a real straight forward guy. He wont sell you crap. only good stuff that will actually do stuff for your car. check it out.

subaru shop in sac

Hey bro,

If your looking for a good shop in Sacramento i would recommend Subaru Specialists. I have know this guy for 14 years. He has an all wheel dyno and can pretty much do anything you are looking to do on your wrx. His name is joe and you can get his number on www.subaruspecialsts.com I see that you are also looking for a place to meet up at. I am also and i dont know any around. I know some people with wrx's so maybe we can start one that is close in sac. Hit me up if you are interested. My email is [email protected] Late.

For all you looking for places to meet, have you all tried the NASIOC.COM threads? There are a bunch of people from up here. Go to the bay area impreza club section and look for sac meets. I'm pretty sure they have them there...

Also, I can finally find somewhere to get my car tuned!!! I'm way up in willows, which is about an hour and twenty minutes north of sac, so we have jack up this way. I didn't realize there were that many shops down there. !Thumbs Up

DBTuned does AccessPORT tuning right?
I'm getting a V1 real soon and was wondering if it fits launch control on there. I heard it doesn't fit.
I want to get the most out of a TBE and I heard Cobb's map is shit.
