Lightbulb Which tuners do you suggest...

I have a 03 Mustang GT with K&N Cold Air Intake and plans for exhaust, springs ect. I am thinking about getting a tuner for the car to take full advantage of what i am doing to the car. The only place that i have looked at is AM. Are there any suggestions on different places to look and/or suggestions that any of you have for me?
Note: I am not looking for the most expensive tuner, just one that will help me tweak for good performance and one that is easy to use.

Thanks in advance

Get brenspeed to write you a custom tune with an SCT. Do not get a canned tune.

if you know how to tune then use sniper. if u dont know how to write a tune then stick with sct and go to a shop that uses them.

if you plan on getting a tune from a shop, they will most likely cut you a deal on a handheld along with the tune. no guarantees though.

I want to go with the SCT, it seems like bamachipsor brenspeed are the top choices, besides going to get a tune at a shop.

That's a canned tune unless the car is data-logged either on the street or dyno. To the OP, check your local speed shop for tuners and get it done right.
