Went to a performance shop today....

My friend had an appointment to get his car tuned and dyno'd today so me and another friend tagged along.

He's got an 06 WRX with everything from an STi, even the interior.

The shop we went to was called ESP. The people there are really nice and they do a great job on everything they do, ranging from a simple 4 cylinder import to a big block car/truck.

301hp and 318 lb torque. his turbo is ****ting out so its going to need a replacement and and it might get injectors and new fuel pump too while hes at it. definitely a difference from when we brought it though it pulls really hard in 4th and holds at 18psi but the goal was for 20-21

That Jeep Comanche

I love those trucks. My dad had a top of the line, everything done to it, purple 89 (I think) v6 4x4 that he used for hunting. Sadly, he had to sell it when he started this family
