Service shop in Denver

I spent some time with a spreadsheet and it looks like addressing my few gripes with the old Unicorn is far more cost effective than getting into something else.

Thing is I just don't want to take time out to turn wrenches right now; too preoccupied with getting settled in to work and life here.

Does anyone have recommendations for mod-friendly service shops in the Denver area? Preferably with a strong Subaru background?

Suba Performance. Strictly Automotive is also well regarded for Subies, but i am not as certain about modded ones.

I want to swap the STI springs back on; I've been unsuccessful finding a setting on the tokico d-specs that isn't either under-damped in some conditions or over-damped in others, which I'm guessing is because the Epics are progressive.

I want to swap out some exhaust bits, possibly including going back to the stock manifold from the current EL header.

Maybe, just maybe, install the 8cm 20g I've had sitting around for a while.

Couple other little things.

And probably most importantly, I want to get a tune for 91 octane because there's no 93 out here. sadbanana

Re: Service shop in Denver

Any recommendations for a good alignment shop?

Any by 'good' I mean a shop that will actually work to hit the alignment specs I provide (in my experience most shops are done once each corner is anywhere within factory specs), and do the alignment with a Deliverator-sized mass as ballast in the driver's seat, and has experience working on modified cars. Is there a shop or two that's favored by local autocrossers or track day geeks?

Re: Service shop in Denver

You could try posting at www.coloradorallycross.org or try Colorado Region of SCCA to find the local autocrossers.

Re: Service shop in Denver

I've never had an issue with Brakes Plus for alignments and work wise ask around the South Denver Subaru Club. I do my own work so far but I've heard subaperformance and speedy roo do great jobs. You could also go on google maps, type in subaru repair and see who has 5.0 or close to it.
