Engine management advice for my turbo setup

Car is a stock 01 bullit will be running a B&G 2v kit.

I need help to decide between AEM stand alone or a sct.

I dont want to tune my own car,we have a real good sct tuner in my city but most of the aem guys are honda guys and havent done a mustang yet.

Correct me if im wrong on cost please
If I go sct cost wise im looking at around $700 for a tune a good EBC will cost me proably in the $500 range mass air $200+ total= $1500

Aem cost around $1200 I wont need a EBC or a mass air(im not sure about the maf I could of swore going stand alone you dont need to buy a new one)

Forgive me for noobness but I have no experiance with this side of things.


Project Budget 4v turbo

I have the AEM on my car. You will not need a mass air meter. If you can find someone to help you tune it, its the way to go.

AEM hands down. Especially on a turbo car.
It has some really nice turbo features that you will love.

You have an '01 so you'll probably have to look in to getting the universal AEM if you go this route.

I don't think AEM makes a specific plug and play for the modular cars.

AEM rocks BTW
