if you wanted a faster car, should have went with the 335i. less weight... huge mod right there!

so now, since you got the XI, get a FMIC, and a meth kit. should be 400-415hp

Really, I came from an STS-V Supercharged Northstar, and my 335xi with only the JB4 feels plenty fast in comparison. What map are you using, what octane are you using, and are you playing with the DTC light on, that makes a huge difference from a Dig.

I have 08 335xi as well, running Cobb Stg2+ and some e85 when I'm bored, try it out and u won't be disappointed.

And get a FMIC, makes a huge difference with Cobb dunno about jb4.

you can throw a meth kit on.

if it still doesnt feel fast, you're outta luck unless you want to pony up for upgraded turbo(s)

In my opinion, I would get rid of the JB4 for a software reflash that you can customize to your car. if you get the meth kit, bigger intercooler, and already have things done, you will definitely see more power from a reflash. I dont have a N54, but I'm pretty sure GIAC has a tune and I would recommend them. At least ive had a good experience with their VW tunes

the jb4 has everything you need at least for what you have in mind. FMIC and meth if you wish, but an n54 with any tune and downpipes should not feel slow.. yes compared to a built anything with a huge snail, but for any car with a tune and a cats removed? i think its pretty damn quick for just that.

If your car is "too slow" with the JB4, DP, and DCI's - there is more than likely something wrong with your car. Even with the XI, it shouldnt be "too slow".

fbo + meth 335xi at 17 psi 6mt dynoed 391 awhp. I think the guy is using the wrong map for his mods but thats just my opinion.

I guess he got used to the power tho, 20 psi on rbs fbo + meth + e85 eventually didn't feel fast to me anymore lol.

I came from an 05 CTS-V and the 335i x-drive isn't anywhere near as fast especially since I have a 6EAT. But I'm not complaining at all, it's plenty fast as my daily beater.

Get a protune, I come from the Subaru world and there is a world of difference between an OTS map and a true protune/dynotune.
