since im looking to gain more take-off power than i am top-end speed the torque chip is looking good both for my car and budget. is a 4-7ft/lb gain that noticable? I'm sure combined with a better exhaust it will be even more beneficial.

I had a ProECM before I got my PerfectPower, and there is no comparison between the two. When I installed the ProECM, I remeber driving it and going, hmm, I think there's a touch more power. Then when I drove after the PP went in, I said something to the effect of "holy crap, where have you been all my life!" Honestly, spend the extra couple hundred for the PP over the TC, it's more than worth it. Also, the PP is tunable with a laptop, so you can get the most out of any future mods you may get.
