Feb 27th- Headgaskets Valve Work + More

Daniel owns this 2002 WRX which was having some miss fires. He brought it in to AJW Performance for some diagnostic work.

We changed the spark plugs did a compression check coil packs and a few other tests and confirmed that cylinder #4 had something seriously wrong. After removing the head we found one of the valves had a significant piece missing so it was time for some head work. While the motor was pulled we decided to do the other head gasket. We discovered that the head had several cracks in it so this was taken care of as well of course.

Feb 23 2012- Ball Joints Downpipes/Uppipes Tuning + Turbos!

The best part about having such a great day at the shop is writing about it to share with everyone else.

Today we attacked in full force overflowing our workspace in the shop more work had to be performed in the parking lot! It will be time for that larger building sooner than we thought!


The Black 2003 Legacy GT:

Agency Power Exhaust Installed On 996

996 Exhaust Clip


We installed a Agency Power stainless exhaust system on the 1999 996 C4 recently.

The car has a great tone and much better throttle response throughout the powerband. Agency power offers great fitment at a price which will not break the bank either (Around 800.00 for the system). This system allows for the use of the OEM tips or aftermarket tips if you would like as well. AJW Performance is an Agency Power dealer.

What’s New Today? Coilover HID Exhaust + Tuning! Feb 4 2012

Today we installed some ISC Coilovers on Matt’s 08 WRX. Matt is a great customer of ours and already has some nice work done to his car that we have performed in the past such as a VF52 Injectors Turbo Back Exhaust and more.


Ryan’s legacy came in this afternoon as well. We did a street tune and a downpipe as well as HID’s.

A downpipe and tune really wake these legacy gt’s up making the car a lot of fun to drive.

The downpipe of choice is an Invidia paired with an AJW Performance street tune.

Feb 2 2012- Compression and Leak Down Tests

In the past couple weeks we have performed a handful of compression checks and leak down tests on customer’s vehicles.

These are a great diagnostic tool but also great for someone who wants to take their vehicle to the next level but wants to make sure the motor is mechanically sound.

It also make sense to do the spark plugs at the same time We use NGK stock heat or one step colder plugs for our customers here at AJW Performance. Leak tests start at 25.00 and compression checks start at 85.00.
