Default uni-chip retune vs. new Utec

Hi:
I have a Cobb Club-spec, APS uppipe and TMIC, w/ dynotuned APS Uni-chip/boost controller. I'll be upgrading to: pnp VF22, Walbro, and injectors. Can I save some bucks by getting TBXS to retune the APS Uni-chip, or is it significantly better to have TBXS tune the used Utec I bought for backup. I intend to not change the engine mods once tuned, but understand that multiple maps (cold & warm weather, 91 & 94 octane) might be advantageous.

Any other thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated.

Mark

Mark,

I may be wrong here, but IIRC TXS isnt reflashing UNIchips anymore...


That being said, you already own a UTEC, why the hell not use it! That way you can have your map switching, plus better control over the motor.

Get the utec is much easier to tune and you can do stuff with it. Also multiple maps are awsome to have.

the unichip worked but had alot of little glitches not worth.

Expecially those 03+ ... you cant even use most unichips in the market .
