Default to access port or to not access port. that is the question

I've been trying to get an access port for several months like everyone else but with no success. I'm thinking of going another route and get a link or should i wait. I'd like to get everyone's input on this.

Thanks.

Here is my input:

Ask mosh if he thought the access port was worth the wait. He put down some impressive numbers

If you choose not to wait --please-- do not get a Link. Your friendly neighborhood tuner will thank you.
If you will be lightly modding your car, get a Unichip (cheap and effective).
Lots of goodies, the go with a Utech(kinda pricey, but very versatile and widely used )

yeah stay away from the Link... unless you want to retune your car everytime the weather changes

AccessPort is some mighty fine technology though

Thumbs up Worth the wait

I did it.. pretty bullet proof results

FIS can tune it

When access tuner comes out you will be able to play with it.

Another vote for the 'Port... great value for the $$. Considering how easy it is to use, it's worth it. Just follow the directions (unlike me ) and you'll be glad you got one.
