Best tune for my buck

Hello fanatics, I'm new here to this site...I've been around just browsing but recently got a wild hair up my but and want to do a few upgrades/bolt-ons to my car to make it a little snappier! I'm sick of the issues I'm having with the stock tune...hanging revs, bucking, etc.

What would be the best tune for me if I'm just wanting a few bolt-on like orp, cam gears, cai...you know just things of that nature. Would eventually like to maybe port the head and get aftermarket cams. I like the predator and know a little about it because my buddy hasd one for his mach1. Now I'm hearing about xcal2 and some other product as well, but don't know to much about them. Please give me some hands on advise or maybe direct me to a few sites where I can read up on them. I guess this is the easy way out, but everytime I search for this stuff I never can find it. I also what some expert advise from someone who's used these products.

I've had my car since 03 and it's an 02 sonic blue focus, and I have wanted to put some mods on it since I seed Turbo Tom run in 03 I do belive in IL @ Cordova Dragway for FFW. I remember meeting ham and thinking, I would really like to make my car go faster....just not finacially able. I have recently saved a few pennies and have a garage now that I'm able to do some work in!

I do have a few mods: AEM cai, steeda sts, and vf engineer mount. I have managed to run some good numbers with the mods that I have. I've seens some of these posts where people have a few more mods than I and are running higher numbers. Now I'm ready for more, if you have any helpful advise, it would be greatly appreciated.

65mm Throttle body, FRPP wires, gap your plugs at .060 (free mod), ORP and a tune from Tom.

Those few mods should really wake up your SVT and make it fun to drive all at the same time.

Have a few more questions! What is the quickest, easiest way to pay for you? Also, does the programmer come with good instructions on how to use?
