Okay first of all before I go anyfurther I would like a thread that does NOT consist of bashing either tuning systems or flaming each other.. I want honest opinions as well as the PRO's and CON's of each system.
I currently use Ecutek but would like something more expandable and user friendly that doesn't have the high costs of Standalone like hydra or AEM EMS.
However I like ecutek because it's reliable for the most part and allows the safety parameters of the stock ecu to still function.. However I feel as though I could make more power with something else.. I haven't been too happy with ecutek yet..

Let the debate begin!

Thanks, Jake.

Both programs will net about the same power. I think the AP is a better option because you can have multiple maps (93 oct, 93 oct+meth, race gas, etc) and you can easily switch between them. I know ecutek has just realised their map switching software, but you can still only have two maps. It also costs extra.

If you already have ecutek, i wouldn't bother switching unless you absolutely need to have 3 or more maps (if you only need 2, i would just get the ecutek map switching software).

And if you want to tune the car yourself there's no comparison at all, the AP + Street Tuner is the way to go.

Some tuners do have a mail-in/out feature. PDX will help you with one, and you can do some data logging and they'll tune your map to spec. i believe...
