If you have or are planning on getting the Pro kit, then def Tom. He is the only one that will provide his tune in an open format. Randy will not.

I realize you're the one that started this thread, but that question really goes off in a different direction than your poll question and discussion.
I'd suggest stating your question in a new thread so it doesn't get lost in the middle of this one.

I've had a FSWerks tune for about a year and have never had any problems. I plan on adding my tune for my header once I get it installed. When I do get a wideband, I may switch to Tom. I like how he has a new program where he can make his setting on your computer from his computer.
