    Whats it doing that makes you think it needs to be tuned then? This is an H22? I got plenty of tools and what not and i know we can find a nice shop, If ya want im serous about swingin by, iu dont mind helping at a, the way i see it you can pay me with a ride in the lude. plus i wouldint mind leting my moms BF take a look, were planning on swaping in an H22 to there accord, as soon as this f22 kicks the bucket.

    I got some buddies (brothers) that live around the coroner, impreza guys, but im sure they can recomend a great place to check out for forced induction tuning. One of them drove to arizona toget his impreza tuned at Kingpin motor sports. But i know they will know some great local shops. This isint the kind of thing you want any old fool puting his hands on.

    For honda forced induction tunning definitly go to Rage. Rage Website. I personally don't care much for the owner's personality or their pricing, put they are a very professional shop who do good, FULLY LEGIT and reputiable work. Their tunner is simply amazing. He is soo crazy knowledable about fuel managment and wiring and really cares about the cars he works on/tunes. Its funny to watch him get a little upset when cars are preforming poorly on the dyno. A very good friend of mine works for jackson racing and he had his car tuned there as well. Check em out and remember you get what you pay for.

    Edit: Also what fuel management are running. I know they don't tune hondata, but do tune motec, speed pro, AEM, etc.

    Do It Dyno ask for Bubba hands down. I sent you a PM with is # yo. He is the most asked for tuner in So. Cali he's the bomb with Hondata and Motec.

    hahaha, I <3 James Lin a.k.a. tuner at Rage. He wired my vtec, although for him it must have been like taking off a bolt is to me. His car has all the wires individually labeled, its the craziest shit I've ever seen. Rage charges you up the butt though.

    Hookups in Upland does really good work as well. I think they are just as good as Rage, but that is just me. They have a dyno, and they don't rape you as far as pricing goes. There number is 909 373-RACE.

    Although this thread is a bit dead, I guess it is good for anyone doing reference.

    Yeah Chris at Hookups is definitly a really awesome guy, hes done a couple of favors for me which really helped me out. But for FI tunning Rage is still the place to go. Is chirs still tunning at hookups? Honestly though James >>>>>>>>> Chris about knowledge of fuel management and tunning. But for mechanical work id go there, much cooler guys and reasonable pricing.

    One more comment. As Johnathan says, Bubba is an awesome tunner as well. I have never even seen the guy, however I have heard very good things about him from extremly knowledgable and deeply involved people in the honda industry. I would very much consider having him tune my car as well.
