Default ecu upgrade choices...which would be the best?

hey i needed some advice on my next investment to my car which is and ecu upgrade. 1st off what ive done so far to my car is a strohm turbo-back, resonator removal/highflow filter, perrin intercooler and turbo hoses, perrin light crank pulley, sti eng/trans mounts, new swaybars and end links front & rear, braided brake lines and akartboy short-throw. Ive been looking for my best choice of ecu upgrade...im looking for a Pnp, so i was considering the turboXS UTEC, the UNIchip, and I just found out that Cobb has their own PNP now too. I am considering these 3 for a base for future upgrades (i.e. vf34, injectors, fuel pump, headers, water injection, etc). So for my money (Im not looking to spend over a grand) which would be the best for my situation, any feed back would be greatly appreciated.......thanks

if you are looking to 1) spend under a grand 2) go VF34 and pinks... I'd go for the Accessport.

After all the money you have spent on your car though, I dont see you stopping at a VF34. If you get that setup (I did) you'll eventually want something a little stronger (I do/did). Then you'll need something other than an accessport to control an 18g or whatever you decide to get.

A UTEC would be the most future proof and can adapt to anything you decide to throw at it... water injection included (next firmware rumors)
