Canned tune , you get what you get , you dont know how safe it is with out datalogging , you dont know if your getting all your paid for , most canned tunes are made from tuning a few Foci then making a generic tune based on those few Foci tested which means not every car is making its safe potental

Which one do you think would be the better tune ?

The custom tune, of course. I'm just wondering why the Injected tuner is so much more popular. Is it because they were the first to announce anything? As far as I know, they don't offer custom tunes, or datalogging; however, I've been out of the loop for awhile. And your tuner is cheaper. Sounds like a no-brainer to me. Now I'm just worried about the warranty being voided issue as I still have 1.5 years/20k miles left.
