I know from personal experience the difference between Stage 1 on Cobb and GIAC... Cobb is like an unrefined moon shine: it gives you the kicks but its a bit of a wild ride (throttle closures galore) as to where GIAC is more like a fine aged scotch: not as powerful but has outstanding drivability on the street and on the track.
WHatever dude. I have zero throttle closures with COBB on every map that I've used - on two different 335xis. I've got a stock car now and no troubles. I don't disagree that some experience throttle closures but I would bet anything they're caused because of breathing mods or some mechanical issue and not the tune.
