I drive around on Map 0 to save on gas. I switch it to map 2 whenever I want some fun.

Exactly what I was thinking but maybe OP is just too used to the power he already gets and wants more.

i felt the same way driving a stage 3 b5 S4 around for years you just get used to the power. mentally fooled myself that buying a house was more important, woosh: 328 is "satisfying" daily driver.

Drive a prius for a day and if your car still feels slow after that you need more mods

Drive a civic for a week and go back to your car you really appreciate your car more after. I drove around my dad's commuter civic for a few days and I couldn't explain how relieved I was to be back even in my 330.

Upgrade to a jb4 board. I have one for sale $35 shipped. You get all the in dash features with it and should be a good update from your jb3. Pm me if you want it.

it's the negative horsepower factor. Didn't you include that in the equation?

$35? May as well give it away? I'd take it.
