Tune Question

I cant decide what tuner to go with some people say a shift on the fly isn't bad if you jsut want a little power add. I want to get the most power for my 2007 without studs on a stock motor. I just dont want to have to wait 15 minutes to load a tune but from what I read I hear its best. What do you experienced guys think is my best bet?

SCT with custom tuning

And it only takes 2min or less to load a new tune. It's not shift-on-the-fly, but it's pretty quick

SCT all the way!! I use to have the Hyper-Tech adjust on the fly, and it doesn't even compare to the SCT. It only take a couple of minutes to swap out tunes.
