Koni or KYB??

I was looking into getting either Koni or KYB adjustable damping shocks and struts for the Focus. Both seem like quality brands, but I wanna ask from people who either own/ used these brands before. Are they any good? Is one better than the other? Do they both suck? I want adjustability and coil overs too expensive right now. And yes I used the search function. Gracias

Btw, I'm currently running SVT suspension with Skunk2 springs...

Koni's are superior to AGX's but you're also paying a premium for that quality. There's nothing wrong with the AGX's for the price. They're the cheapest quality adjustable shock available. For the street, the Koni is probably overkill. But if you intend to autocross or do a lot of lapping, the Koni would be the better choice. Koni's also tend to last longer than AGX's by most reports.
