    is it even worth it to still have a TurboXS UTEC circa 2004?

    so i have a had a UTEC since about 2004. i've never really done anything other than had the pre-loaded stage 2 map set on it.

    is it worth keeping it and eventually having my car tuned with it or getting something different like an Access Port?

    Depends if you can find a shop that tunes it. A UTEC + OpenECU reflash combination is a very powerful engine management setup if you can find someone to tune it right.

    Not sure what would make you think it's not worth it. It still works.

    just based on the fact it is so old and the Accessport seems to do so much more so much easier and more people are using it and getting results

    You get the same results out of an Accessport that you do a UTEC.

    And once installed, the UTEC is easier than the AP.
