Just b/c someone developed the original idea, doesn't mean that each subsequent idea will always be better than the rest of the competition.
That's like saying that Ford was the first production car, so therefore they make the best cars. I'm sure many would care to argue that point, just as i argue yours.
I have an AA chip, and a bunch of other AA mods, and I have found my car to be slightly faster than many Jim C modded cars (with equal mods). maybe it's the car, maybe i'm a "perfect driver" (..NOT!), or maybe it just might be the software.
I have done 70-110 mph tests against Jim C mod chipped 3.2L cars (equal mods),and was able to pull away by about 3 bodylengths.
I'm most certainly open-minded to any stories of the converse. So if there are any, please let me know.
I personally would put my money w/ the tuner who is the most enthusiastic about performance. The guys at AA are enthusiasts, they pay attention to the little details, and they are honest. They are not just resellers of parts, but they also design and make their own stuff.
I'm sold on AA, I'm sure that Jim C.'s stuff is great, but I'm stickig w/ the AA.
