I don't know much about their installs, but as a huge subaru follower, the tunes coming out of "the shop" are exceptional and highly praised in the subaru community. The cars coming out of there usually put down insane power curves and run good times at the track.
That is my very limited review fwiw

Just out of curiosity, how would the guy know he had used parts put in? I mean they were used on his car before he "found out"..

ery true the shop still has the fastest 08 sti and junior is very good with tuning 500 bucks for a full tune then 350 for a quick remap. but dont quote me on the price just call jimmy if you call. call after 12 jimmy is in late every day

He ran the car for about 200 miles after the shop built it and motor blew... So he took it to ics in stamford and they said all the parts were used...I'm not too close to the dude and idk if it's true or not... Just repeating what he said... But I'll give them a call and see what's up

there is the biggest problem right there. ics is owned by jimmys brother who is a prix and will say anything to make jimmy look bad he even had his own father and brother arrested for no reason.
