Tuner Reccomendations

I just bought a 2012 WRX Sedan. I do have a Cobb AP(have not installed yet, still breaking in new car). I want this car to run in the 12's. This is my daily driver. I only want to goto the track once to run in the 12's. What tuner and mods does everyone reccommend? I was thinking a intake, catted downpipe and good tune.

All are good shops, call one and tell them your goals. They'll get you pointed in the direction you want.

Have you ever driven the quarter mile? Even with a great setup and tune it takes a decent amount of skill/practice to get in the 12s. Don't be dissapointed if you don't get it first go.

people will tell you one of two places. gst or eq tuning. both are good. You can search for bad reviews for either shop but the fanboys for both will come in and discredited it. I go to GST havent had a problem with them and I see no need to switch.

I did not forget FWmotorsports, im guessing they are too far for the OP
