I would like opinions on this as well, or would we be better off to get a protune for the money?

Cobb.

Look around on this forum, you will find at least 10-20 cobb users for every vishnu user.

Vishnu ECU = ECUTEK done by Vishnu

The tune may possibly be better than the Cobb shelf tune.. i don't know. But a shelf tune is a shelf tune.

The Cobb Access Port system is hands down a superior system.

I can understand that there are more cobb users, thats becasue there are more cobb dealers compaired to the single Vishnu.

Access port for sure...AP seems to be alot easier to tune , especially when u have blow through set up...go to proven power section, u'll find many of them are tuned with AP ..

Depends on a few factors. If your going to mod the car once going with the Vishanu would be better.
If you want upgrade gradually the Cobb solution is better, you can flash with your upgrades.
