I will be getting dynotuned by Bren on Jan 5 and really look forward to it. So far, my experience has been great. They have been very insightful and quick to respond to all my questions. I just finished my mods and Bren sent me a map to hold me over until my dynotune on the fifth. I have an 05 (5 speed) LGT. Here is my mod list:
VF52 port & polished w/ptp blanket and GS heatshield
DW850 sidefeed injectors
DW65 fuel pump
Perrin turbo inlet
Cobb SF intake w/box
Invidia catless dowpipe w/ Autospeed catless back
Exedy stage 1 clutch w/ WRX flywheel
Plus suspension mods: coils, swaybars, lca bushings, PFF7's...
My LGT has 106,000 miles on it and I just did major maintenance/service on it over the past few months (timing belt, spark plugs, wheel bearings, clutch...). Also did the compression test and the engine still looks strong. I hope to keep it for another hundred thousand. I am meticulous with oil changes and service. The car has been stage 2 for the past 80,000 miles. It's a daily driver.
