Definitely 2 camps here.

brian_i is right, I would steer you to the AP because that is what I have experience in. I have had 2 maps created for me, 1.)stock MAP upgrade and 2.)STI/Stage 2 MAPS that were customized for major mods and both results were awsome. I was able to contact PDX (out of Portland) and they were able to put together great maps without having it professionally pro-tuned (lower 48).

My brother has the UTEC, was sent the MAPS but definitely benefitted from taking down to Portland and having it pro-tuned.

I have experience with both and have found that the AP seems to be an easier plug and play option however, PDX sells both and recommends both depending on mods and how you plan to use.

I would suggest contacing www.pdxtuning.com or some other tuner who sells BOTH to get a unbiased/technically accurate response.
