i have the hydra and love it.....phil is an awesome guy and always willing to help out.....I do think AEM EMS is a more powerful ecu though, but i dont have any first hand experience with it so what do i know.

what i can say is the hydra is very very easy to setup and get the car running.

i know brydon uses the AEM in his fairy mobile (cause its teal :mamoru:)...so hopefully he'll chime in....

as for the turbo.....mhi 20gs are cheap...im pretty happy with my mhi 18G until it sucked something in and destroyed the compressor wheel :run:

Hey, I love the teal! Anyway Hydra is plug and play for older cars which is a huge deal. AEM is only plug and play for the 2002+ WRX and 2004+ STI.

Both will do the same thing in the end. AEM has more features and is easy to use but most people don't use those features. Who's tuning it? What do they perfer? that's about all you need to know.
