What chip should I buy for my 2006 Mustang GT?

I have a MMR Annihilator Cold Air Intake, and a Magnaflow Tru-X Off-Road X-Pipe, and I am now looking for a racing chip. I want the obvious things (Power, Speed, and Acceleration). What would be a good chip to give me the most for the money? I don't want to spend TOO much but am willing to put down about $800 MAX. Anybody got some advice?

You don't need a chip, you need a tune. You can get a tuner with tunes for around $500.00

If your willing to put that much coin into it Id get a custom dyno tune. If there are no shops near you SCT tuners and Diablo tuners are nice choices. Just having that Cold air kit and no tune is leaving alot of ponies unaccounted for. A tune will also give you much better throttle response.

You can't run what you have WITHOUT a tune - the MMR CAI instructions should have made that clear.

He's got the CAI already but he could probably get a good deal from Doug @ BamaChips on a used SCT or Diablo and some tunes with it.
