Which Tuner? Bama/Rogue

I want to order some tunes soon. I was wondering which Tuner/Seller is better for a 3.0 Auto? I've read mixed reviews and can't make up my mind. I'm looking forward to having better performance and shift points especially.

Bama/Doug or Fred/Rogue? Prices are about the same for both. Can i go wrong either way?

Thanks

I have searched around, but haven't really found any good info based on shift points. Only that the WOT shift points are changed. Would that be the only way they can be affected? I'd like to have some opinions if possible.

NOT JET!

Don't make the same mistake my then-22 year-old self made...I'm trying to sell it on CL, but haven't had any luck...

EDIT: it's on eBay now too.

ding ding ding! we have a winner!

It has decent ability to change parameters, but in the engine power dept...it FAILS horribly.

I bought it to get rid of the 92MPH speed limiter...now i'm hardly over 70MPH these days...amazing what gas and having a kid will do to ya.

it is for a Ranger anyway. It may work better on other engines/transmissions, but it just isn't up to par for me. I got more use out of it as a code scanner on the old lady's old 03 F150 than a tuner for my truck.
