HP Tuners does some good stuff.

I've used their software a little bit on my Ford Raptor. Very well respected and basically the go-to tuning solution for all GM vehicles.

See if they'll get you a discount on their hardware setup so that you can monitor and datalog going forward. There are some e-gauge type devices that allow you to monitor a bunch of parameters and even load tunes from an SD card.

They also have a very active Tech and User support forum which I haven't really seen from any other stock ECU tuning software manufacturer.

Im surprised they want to get into the Subaru market. They have the US domestic side down pretty good at this point so im surprised they want to try and compete with COBB.

Couple distinct advantages they have.

Anyone can buy the hardware and get the software to tune their own car (No accesstuner like issues yet)

If you just want a tune you don't need to spend $4-500 or whatever on an accessport.

Also, Cobb is getting into their market with the mustang, raptors, focus RS's

Gives a shop a lot more breadth of product to support if one tuning package they know well supports more.

Yeah that is the nice thing about Hp tuners

You just buy the credits, $50 per credit, and get a tune. I used it on my Cobalt SS back in the day and you dont need to buy a $650 accessport just to tune.

id do it. It would be awesome if HP tuners could offer VCM suite to compete with Accesstuner pro without needing to be a 'pro tuner'. Maybe they can dig a little deeper than cobb since cobb doesnt map out all of the tables and controls parameters in stock ecus.
