Tuner vs. Chip

So I know I have seen a crap load of posts for tuners and the different types, suggestions, and where to get them vs. chips. But I can't seem to find them on the website. Does anybody have a link??

or you can just enlighten me here.

I've run both tuners and chips on different cars over the years.

The tuners cost more.. but being able to e-mail tunes as well as adjusting things a little yourself is IMO worth the extra cost.

and the tuner also doubles as a "check engine" light code reader for ANY Ford vehicle....

SCT will gain you alot more power then say a jet hardchip. And if you want even more power do some data logging for a custom tune.
