It depends on what kinda work you want done. For an installation option hit up Tony at Econo Lube n' Tune in National City if he's still there.

For another option, don't be afraid of looking up a how-to and picking up a wrench.

Cheers!

Ok so i guess u are looking for a pro tune.

I have done the plugs and fuel pump. I dont like injectors much but i have done them too. Hit up outfront motorsports they make a fuel rail for subarus. Church automotive testing has good prices on cobb protunes. Click the links in my sig.

That stuff is pretty straight forward to install. Go at it with caution though especially if it's your first time. Pay particular attention to how things were attached before removing them. Marking stuff with masking tape is an awesome way of remembering what goes where.

I am all for an upgraded fuel rail system. It is the most difficult to install of the parts you mentioned however. The injectors and pump aren't too difficult. The stock fuel rails feed the injectors in series; meaning it feeds the passengers side injectors first and from the passengers rail it goes to the drivers side injectors. This can lead to the last cylinder (I forget which number, I think it's cylinder #3) leaning out. I think the injector feed system is like this on the stock rails (1-2-4-3).

All the aftermarket fuel rails I've seen feed both rails in parallel and evenly distribute the fuel. There are people that have even made their own.

If you have the time, patience, and tools to do it I say do it yourself. There are DIY write ups around too. If you decide to install the rails, I have a few pointers for you. The only way that I got the stock rails out is by having the intake manifold detached from the motor (8 long bolts). Make sure you know which is the fuel feed and return lines are and that the fuel pressure regulator attaches AFTER the injectors and before return line. If you install it backwards, you'll grenade your motor once you get into boost due to fuel pressure not increasing with boost.

Hmmm it's possible that he's trying to buy out from corp.

In any case, Tony had an accident while on vacation oversees, he should be back at the end of this month. Meanwhile, his son Steven is running the shop.
