<A HREF="http://www.brainstormperformance.com/home.php" TARGET="_blank">http://www.brainstormperformance.com/home.php</A><p>I found their website via the SrtForums and after looking at the website I noticed they are a distributor of iPd products. Wonderin if anyone had heard of or have had any experience with this shop. It'd be nice to know of a good performance place in SoCal when the time is right <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

I have heard of them, but AFAIK they have only done one volvo... <A HREF="http://www.zenvolvo.repair.bz" TARGET="_blank">http://www.zenvolvo.repair.bz</A>/ is who I use for non warranty stuff and they are excellent. They are all Volvo master mechanics and know their stuff. Talk to Frank or Luis. Fair prices too.

I've heard of the place Nikhsub is suggesting and although I've never been there, I'm keeping it mind if I ever have to have something simple installed/maintained on the car outside of warranty.<p>There is another company that alot of the SRT4 guys use called ST Motorsports. THere is a website but I forgot it at the moment. In any case, they have installed many an aftermarket turbo kit on the SRT's and people have been EXTREMELY happy with their work. Although they dont seem to have any extended experience with Volvo's, it is definitely someplace to keep in mind.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Scott Hart</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Both of these shops have done installs for our customers with good feedback form the customers.

Re: SoCal tuner - BrainStormPerformance...anyone heard of? (Tekk)

There was a big meet last winter at BrainStormPerformance for Dyno testing and a look at aftermarket venders. I've heard a few people that have used them with good compliments.<p>Zen is excellant too. I'm headed over there next week to install some custom hose's that EVOLVE made for me. I've heard a lot of people from the board that have used them.

Re: (Scott Hart)

My R will be going back to the Brainstorm for possibly some more mods (ipd stuff perhaps?) sometime soon. Brainstorm does a lot of aftermarket Subarus (they have a tuning guru for WRX's), Mazda Miatas, Z's and G35 coupes. They are now entering the world of European car tuning with MB, BMW, Volvo, etc. with aftermarket parts from well known and reliable companies such as ipd and Renntech. Another plus is that they have their own AWD dyno to do the tuning. <A HREF="http://www.pbase.com/kirb/brainstorm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.pbase.com/kirb/brainstorm</A>
