Powerdyne will most likely provide 6psi, 9psi tends to over rev the unit.

If you're looking at capa kits, they used to come with a chip for tuning - not sure what they doing these days.

Having a better aftermarket ECU would normally always benefit you....with te 9PSI mark u are wanting to acheive what sorta of power figure are you expecting at that level ?

Irun my Vortech up to about 10-11psi on the standard ECU. It has been piggybacked though.

Aftermarket will always treat your car better, but depends on what you can afford.
