thinking of trading my jb2h for sstt

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
Im kind of sick of having to remove the jb2h for service.My car is going in for oil cooler retrofit and other service so Im thinking of sacrificing some power for the ease of the sstt. Ive had it before and the power was good. Im taking it off in a couple of days. If anyone wants to trade let me know and Ill make a decision.

that would of worked out. Im thinking of still dealing with the bullshit of removing reinstalling because the jb2h is so powerful. I forgot what the sstt felt like and I think I might be dissapointed. but Ill be able to put it on and take it off quick. hmm..

How often do you have to go in for service? Also, how many times have you uninstalled it?

I figured after a couple times you should be pretty quick at it...

From all the reviews I have read it seems as if you might be disappointed with the power difference, but at the same time the ease of installation will be a nice change of pace....

It rarely goes in for service and i've installed reinstalled it twice. Its not hard but what if the car suddenly breaks down at night and the car needs to be towed to bmw. It wont be easy to take it off before it goes in. with the sstt I can just take it off right away. The car is going in for the oil cooler retrofit and I have to remove it. kind of getting tired of it. still not sure because of what I said earlier. jb2h is very powerful imo. Plus the black tape leaves a lot of residue on the wires. Its a bitch to clean off.

I understand. Well, a little hint for you. Instead of black vinyl electrical tape, use masking tape. It will leave no residue and holds just as good as electrical tape. Another solution would be to use heat shrink....

As far as the towing thing goes, I would get the car towed to my house first, and then call bmw. They way you can take everything off. Just my outlook though...

Well, G/L with whatever you decide to do.

very true, thats what I tell myself Id do. but it will cost me. I think bmw assist will only tow to a bmw dealer. better than losing my warranty I guess. I almost used masking tape last time but forgot to buy some. shit.

Sorry for another post in response, still bumping it though...

When I said get it towed to your house I meant a regular tow truck company. It would probably be like $75 bucks. It costs money, but it saves your warranty and you get to keep the performance you love....

LOL, barely my friend. It has taken so long to get here so I am definitely ready. I am gonna break the car in for 500 miles and then throw the JB2H on. I am going to the track that weekend after that to run it with JB2HR and the rest stock....
