    Well I am now in a dilemma. My JB4 has been great to me, but I have been reading reviews and seen the dynos and I have to consider the ProTuner.

    Any thoughts?

    My issue is that the dynos can't really be compared to each other, unless it's on the same car, same dyno, same day. There's nothing yet that would sway my decision from a Jb4 to a lap3. No comparable dynos, no 1/4 mile times, nothing. Lap3 is posting most of their dynos with a primary downpipe which most others do not have.

    LAP 3 Pro Tune - NO MODS

    upload_2018-10-11_16-11-38.png

    JB4 W/ Fuel Control Wires.

    As you can see @brancky3 both stock stingers were 328/330 WHP so thats pretty damn close on the dynos, but one hits 426WHP (ProTuner) with no mods the other hits 391 with no mods (Map2).

    Thats a MASSIVE difference of 35 WHP

    The numbers are very impressive, I'm just standing by for a user-posted back to back review with real life numbers / slips. It will eventually happen.

    Until I see some of the other companies show those 1/4s with mods and all weather data listed, I’ll sit here... happy with my JB4.

    I independently tested the racechip against the JB4 onthe exact same dyno on the exact same day with the exacts same car. Those two performed almost exactly the same. I also race the racechip on the road against a JB4 w/ fueling RWD stinger against me in a racechip black AWD stinger. The JB4 did pull away but only by about a car length at 120mph. I removed JB4 to install ProTuner..... this is significantly faster.

    I’ll be returning to that dyno next week and tonight I’ll be going to a 1/8 mile strip. The same strip on which I ran the stinger with JB4.

    @Terry@BMS Here's my question to you. Can the JB4 hit 426 WHP on 93 Octane fuel with no other Mods? Do you think that you will develop a map that can run safely and have longevity that can meet or exceed that?

    Like I've said the JB4 has been amazing but these numbers are insane.

    Curious, was the RWD car running map 1 or 2?

    Yes it was running map2. It had the fuel wires and was running an ethanol blend as well

    It could have been another map he was running in not sure I just know it was the fuel wire map. And yes I have meth but it has been off for some time now.

    And just for clarification I’m not saying anything bad about JB4 I enjoyed it quiet a bit and even myself helped spread the word on it.

    I wish E85 was closer I'd make this my primary map over 2.

    Cant wait to see what you bring out for the intake.

    Does the JB4 allow removal of the speed limiter like the LAP3?
