Default Bang for the Buck Standalone

I'm installing an 03 ej20T (stock other than exhaust, and mildly relocated IC) into a 1970 porsche 914. My choices are either to do a LOT of re-wiring on the factory chassis harness (removing unneeded stuff like turnsignals, headlights etc) and using the stock ECU, or giong to a standalone. The down side to Standalone is cost. $1500 for a hydra plus dyno time to make it right... there's 2K in just ECU stuff

Who makes the best Standalone for the $$$?

+1 for Hydra. You not only get a nice product, but the support to back it up. Even though Phil is on the opposite side of the country from me he has been great help over the phone. He is also willing to fly out and tune cars all over as long as you can get enough interest in your area to do this. I'm also lucky though because Hydra USA is 20 minutes from my house, so [email protected] has been of alot of help aswell.
