I would like to see another re-match with JB4 running MAP7.
What exactly does protune do to COBB tuning?
This addresses both things I've quoted. When you buy a COBB AP, you basically download from COBB's website their OTS (Off-the-Shelf) generic maps that are kept intentionally very conservative as a safety precaution (against deviation in gas quality, regional driving conditions, etc). When you get ProTuned, the tune is essentially tailor made to your mods, quality of gas used, etc. To compare an OTS COBB against a JB4/PROcede isn't an accurate comparison, especially when most people are seeing 40-50 WHP gains with their ProTune Maps over the OTS Maps (more when doing E85 blends).
