Programmer/tune questions

I was thinking about getting a Programmer or tune for my car but idk what kind of tuner would give me the most bang for my buck. And should i get a tuner or just a real tune from someone and if so where from (prices to if u can). Also what other upgrades should i look at nothing too expensive or that puts alot of wear on the car (16 years old don't have alot of money to repair it if something goes wrong)

I'm sure he'll post in here but,

Talk with Tom, 1turbofocus, from Focus Power. He'll give you the best advice IMO and he also has very reasonable prices for tuners and tunes.

** Moved to ECU Chat Area **

I went ahead and moved you in to the ECU Chat area. Tom will see you here along with others that can give you insight on a tune.

SVT is a performance car, you're not sticking a chip in it to unlock power, tunes make it more Driveable and over well better exp. by tuners do you mean the person or the hand held decive we mostly use SCT Diablo tuner that arent made anymore don't show certain things you will want a SCT tuner. Tunes depend on what you have on your car? But Tom will have you datalog send you a base tune and if you want work on it from there.
