SCT Tuner, you won't be disappointed. I also have a "Predator" Diablo Sport Tuner on the other Vehicle, that one is fine also. The Predator, I used the tune already on there, but the SCT on the Mustang I got a "Custom" tune done on it.

I just ordered the SCT tuner. I should be receiving it today. I've heard a lot of good things about it. So I will be sitting by the door today waiting for FedEx/ups . . . patiently.

Okay thanks y'all, but what can I expect for results with my set up? Also what are the price ranges? Can I set my car back to factory when smog needed?!

Sctx4. Received it a few weeks ago and love it. Has wifi built in as well to update firmware.

You should expect better throttle response and a decent SOTP gain on the top end that you will probably get used to rather quickly. Pick up maybe 15-20 rwhp. Yes you can return the car to stock when you need to.

Yes as for stock. Before you install a custom tune, it will download your stock tune. Also, you may have remove a tube insert in your air raid cai once it's tuned. You can put it back in to run it stock/untuned.

SCT X4 for sure. Purchase it from Steeda, its the same price as Bama's 'tunes for life program' but I believe Steeda creates better tunes (I have both Bama and Steeda tunes).

Like others have said, check to see if your Airaid CAI has a removable piece. If so, you'll want to tell whichever tuning company you go with that you have the 'race' variant of the Airaid CAI. It'll provide better gains.

Yeah I have the kit that allows me to remove the tube for tuning and then put the tube back on for "stock mode". Is this a good benefit? And of so how?

The tube is there to restrict airflow and will run close to stock. By removing the tube there will be more airflow and the tune is programmed to accommodate that change.
