I have Cobbs AP.Its great, it changes with your mods(Cobbs set list of mods) without going to get retuned each time.It's good if you want an easy and safe tune.

Both are great systems.
You won't go wrong with either.

Access Port + Street Tuner works well for me. Once you get everything updated to latest version it is pretty easy. You can always get street tuner later if you get access port.

sorry to hijack this. I have a question regarding street tuner. Isn't it hard to tune yourself?

My answer to this is "if you have to ask, you shouldn't tune your own car."

AP has stages,like stg 1, stg 2, and stg 2.5.Each has set things you need for that stage.But there are some things that AP can adjust for,not all.
I have a stg 2.5 which calls for all the things from stg2 plus a bigger turbo and injectors.But I have an uppipe,fuel pump,bigger TMIC and one step colder plugs all are not part of Cobbs stg plans.All work fine with the AP.I can get a Protune(In the works) which will be custom tune for my car with the mods I have.That will give me more power,but I don't need it to run the car with my setup.

Don't run a MBC on your car.Just get some EM and you'll be fine.
