My vote goes for Tom even though I chose FSWERKS. If Tom would have had the same deal $360 shipped for an SCT I would have given him my money.

Who ever you choose I strongly recommend a tune as one of your first mods. The SVTF is a pig with the stock tune.

I finally put a wideband on my car after installing an offroad pipe from CFM.
FSWERKS tune was very fat. 12.2 was the average AF throughout the rpm band. I advanced the timing to 30,doesn't like anymore. I leaned the WOT 6% which is as much as the SCT will allow. It's still a little rich at 12.9 it runs a hell of alot better. I wonder what Toms "canned" tune would have measured. It seems the mail order tunes no matter from who are always too fat. I know why they do that but I recommend tweaking your tune if you have the ability.
