SVX Modifications Shop?

Hey SVX Fans,

I live in Los Angeles and looking for a shop that specialize in SVX. I like to make some upgrades, like supercharger, exhaust, engine tuning, etc.

Does anyone know of a shop that's reliable with skills for this type of work? It can be in a neighboring state or anywhere on the west coast.

Re: SVX Modifications Shop?

smallcar.com is in Fife, WA.

I would look for a subaru enthusiast shop more local to you, something that mainly does subaru jobs, after market stuff, etc..

I talk to https://www.licmotorsports.com/ about doing a transmission swap on my SVX (2 SVXs ago). Turns out the owner was a former SVX owner as well. I ended up not doing the trans swap on the car, but I keep them in mind for future things.

I'd be sure you'd have similar shops in SoCal.

Good luck,
Ian.

Thanks Ian for the recommendations.

I just moved back after 7 yrs out of Cali and things have change.

One of the better Subaru tuner shops in SoCal is Renner. Keep in mind... most everything will have to be fabricated for the SVX. Not many shops have experience with the SVX... but these guys certainly have Subaru in their blood.

Re: SVX Modifications Shop?

Just keep in mind not all shops that specialize in subaru can do much for the SVX, In the case of the North Cali shop mentioned where the owner has had an SVX and presumably knowledge of it I wouldn't have too many concerns but other shops that work with WRX and even others do not automatically know the SVX, My own experience with that kind of shop was very disheartening.

Re: SVX Modifications Shop?

It's been a while since this thread has had any activity but it might be worthwhile to check into your regional thread to see if those guys have any insight. If nothing else you might find a member willing to help you.

Check out Bisimoto Engineering. They love oddball projects, such as their 1,000 hp Honda Odyssey minivan...
