1st off, the last part of your post makes no sense.


2nd, since when does COBB has LC for their BMW tunes (there's also no NLS either before you say that)?? There is no directly comparison here UNLESS you're not using Map 5 (the AutoTune Map). AND if you want to compare the JB4 to a COBB, this is what happens:

E90 335 COBB (camera car) vs 135 JB4 (guess who wins every time):


The JB4/PROcede cannot possibly outperform the COBB when it doesn't modify fueling tables or engine timing. The COBB (just like a GIAC or EuroCharged FLASH tune) can adjust & recalibrate these engine performance parameters depending on the mods & gas being used + actually tune the car. Not that there's anything wrong with the piggys, but all they really do is change the boost being targeted & let the OEM DME compensate (which not only isn't tuning, it's incredibly stupid to run your engine & use the OEM DME/knock detection as a safety net)
