    Save some money and get a lid instead of an FIPK. I like my FIPK but i picked it up really cheap. I would have never got one new. Too expensive IMO.

    Im also not a fan of handhelds. If you have a laptop, spend the extra $100 on HPtuners, efilive, etc and learn how to use it. You'll need a wideband for actual WOT tuning and whatnot but they leave a lot of room to grow. Even without the wideband, you'll be able to make a lot of adjustments with it. Be prepared to make yourself learn a lot though. If you don't want to mess with anything just get an actual dyno tune from a pro.

    If you really want a handheld though I would look into the Vinci and Predators units. Those two are the better of the bunch IMO.
