I'd definitely get your SCT chip back to the Bama Team so they can make some adjustments and help dial in your Mustang. I certainly wouldn't blame it on the PCM. These cars can be tricky to dial in sometimes since there's no datalogging feature with the SCT chip, but that doesn't mean it can't be dialed in!

Every single person I've ever talked to who did the swap including myself highly recommends it.
I do know the A9L is easier to tune from scratch, but the 94/95 PCM's seem to be a bit quicker and more responsive. Which is one reason it takes time to dial them in, but they'll perform better in the end once fully calibrated perfectly.
This past year I "worked" (verbally advised) a build with my cousin's 1995 GT. He went with a 363ci Dart block (302 based) and a Ti-V1 Vortech supercharger. Since he was already tied with a shop in Delaware, they tuned it with his stock '95 PCM. I gotta say, the car is heavily modified and makes just a hair under 700rwhp with pump gas and has zero drive-ability issues. Throttle response is killer and the car really gets up and goes.
This is just an example of how the '94/'95 PCM is capable of being tuned perfectly. I don't see any reason to swap to the A9L without trying to dial in your factory PCM first.
