They are in Westminster, maybe they know a shop down your way.

Another general repair shop is MARS in Annapolis, not a Subie shop but they've never done my subies wrong.

good luck

I wouldn't personally go to that place, I've been there before (once). I'm from Westminster, MD, went to Westminster elementary and highschool.

I will tell you who to go with....but I can't recall their name...GAHHH!! It's been 3 years since I've lived there and the name is just slipping my mind. But there's a much better place in Eldersburg (be closer to you as well) and I can't recall the guys names. They are right off of rte 32 (north side in a business complex) and are an aluminum head specialist - heck i think that used to be their name. Thing is they do all large contract work now for like NAPA and such. Since I worked with them for years they always did my Subaru heads back when they were a regular shop. They always did my heads eventhough they weren't nearly as much "public" any more. I would think they would still do it if you walked in or called.

Very nice guys, very good work and of course they know Subarus very well, they're even familiar with the old 80's stuff and know how to do this stuff right.

That being said, you can also ask Subaru dealers who they use to do their machine shop work, that's what i've done outside of MD.

*** edit - i can't find them in Eldersburg. But if Westminster is even an option I'd much prefer this guy, he's been around forever:
# (410) 857-3340
Does great work, i've wheeled Subaru motors to him before and he's made custom inserts and done all sorts of oddball stuff for me, really nice down to earth guy as well.

i think you'll be much better off with one of those two options than IAG.
