Chips id go with SCT but you'll need a dyno shop do the tunes for you, they don't make tuners for SN95 mustangs and fox bodies, the closest you can get is The Anderson Motorsports PMS which is $1,000

Dyno tune will run you about 500-600, at least around here, been thinking about getting one myself. I actually have a number from hypertech that they gave me to call to get a custom tune.

Maybe, but it sure will hurt your mileage and if it is from a 4 or 6 cylinder it will be really weak and likely not last long.

Cost of that and a chip and you are getting close to the cost of the PMS which you could use to tune your car whenever you wanted or needed to.

That is true but then I would need a guinea pig to test my skills out on

It's not hard. Check the sticky thread about the PMS, there is a video on how to use them.

cant you also save the stock settings incase you screw something up? like it has multiple spots to save different setups. kinda like an sct handhelp can store 3 tunes. just wondering cause that may help ease people minds about messing something up.......maybe

Yes, that's the first thing you should do. There is storage for 3 tunes, so you upload your stock tune and save it to 1 spot. That way it's available if you need to revert and you can base your tune from that and save any changes in the second spot. The third spot you could copy the second to and use it for experimenting with the second tune, only writing it to the second spot when you are sure it works well.

At the all ford swap meet a few years back someone was selling what they claimed was a 'tweaker' or tweecer that you could hook up to the computer and to a laptop to adjust things but only had the plug in, no software or anything. Looked kind of Chinsey to me though

Yes, I looked at those and several other options, but most were build it yourself, had a really steep learning curve and like you said looked a bit chintzy. Those, are my main reasons for choosing the PMS.
