Who's tune is best?

If I were to get a Xcalibrator 2, who's tune would be best to go with?

Focus Sport, or Marcy Motorsports?

tunes are loading via a handheld programmer to the car's PCM(or ecu, but Ford calls it a PCM now)

and it modifies the parameters that the PCM operates in, telling the PCM to modify certain things and thus releasing "hidden" power in the engine, on the duratec you get about roughly 6hp and 4 to 5ft lbs of torque... its not like the SVT or zetec, but its alittle bit and gives the driveability back to the car, and raises the fun factor back up.
