DP tuner VS Elite.. what to go with?

I'm going to replace my Sniper with another chip, and just debating what to go with. I hear a lot of good stuff about both tuners. I live about 2 hours from Elite, so wondering if I should go with them because i could personally have it tuned, versus a over the phone kinda of thing. What do you guys think from personal experiences?
thanks!

You almost can't go wrong between these two.

DP Tuner for me though.

Since you're so close, I'd have to agree to go with Tadd's tunes. Both are great, but with Elite so close by you'd have other options as far as tuning or even other services with Tadd.

after reading the posts about Ford supporting gays and the threads being closed and the mention of my post possibly getting out of hand, i just want to say this..
I, in no way, am trying to "versus" the two... Both are great tuners!!! And i am definetely not trying to start of "he said, she said" type of thing.... Just wanted to hear some personal experiences about the two! Hope no one was offended (sponsors).

Theres no need to apologize to the sponsors for your thoughts and feelings. In fact I'm surprised and appalled that a sponsor would come out in public and say what he did. I know as far as I'm concerned my money will be going to other forum sponsors.

Oh man!!! Just came back from Elite. Tadd and Garrett were awesome. I got my 6 position chip in there, and oh my god! I saw a HUGE difference immediately from my Sniper. I went on a straight away and nailed it and it lit up the tires.. It got with it so quick i thought my tranny was going to explode!
But here's the best part.... As i was coming back home i raced a cummins (i kinda egged him on, blowin smoke on him..lol)... he came next to me, had about a quarter mile race, and i pulled on him the entire time, both of us blowin the coal. I was waitin for high way patrol to stop us.. LOL
Great times!
