Although I'll be honest, for how much power you can make for such small quantities of cash with the full piggyback, why skimp. Most other cars would /facepalm at the idea of giving up double digit HP/TQ for a couple hundred bucks.
Its mainly for the guys who don't want to mess with their ecu but still want power.

Once this is released, the SSTT is dead in the water.

everyone selling their sstt's better do so while they can b/c once this new product comes out I don't think you will be able to sell the sstt for the current market price of around $300 shipped.

I think it's kind of funny how when the JB3 came out, and the procede was out, when anyone brought up possibly getting an SSTT, a lot of people responded "Get a real tune, not an SSTT - that's just a boost controller" and "just intercepting the TMAP sensor isn't a real tune". Now that JB+ is coming out, lots of people are all giddy about it. Just an observation.....

+1. I wouldn't expect the JB+ to really show much more power than the SSTT. If more power could have been drawn from tapping the map sensor then we would have seen SSTT2 or something of that nature. Given there is this "user adjustability" you might see a couple more horses for 93+ gas, intake, etc.

lol..

Testing a new platform always takes a lot of time. I've just been posting pictures and info, etc... as it comes so you guys can see its progress and that its not vaporware. BMS told me they are shooting for late Feb to complete all testing, build up inventopry, etc.. Final info, dynos and specs will be posted well before then.

Don't worry.. You guys will be the first to know, and I will have a special deal for the guys that want to jump on this right away

This will be between the JB2 and JB3 closer to the JB2 side, as the JB3 is a much more advanced and integrated solution.

The difference between the pictures, dynos and actually having it installed on your car is like the difference between looking at internet porn and having real sex...

I'm glad I went SSTT when I did. No regrets here at all, particularly as many times as I've had to remove it before going to the dealer.

I need three things to happen for me to scrap my SSTT in favor of the JB+ (in this order):

1. Just as easy to install/uninstall (it looks like it is...takes me 90 seconds max)
2. Undetectable
3. No Limp
4. Dyno greater than 330rwhp/345rwtq (my SSTT got me a 313/332)
5. Priced no more than $325

I'm not saying that these are my demands...I'm just writing my thoughts out loud as to what it would take to get me to scrap my beloved SSTT.

I'm curious to know what would it take for other SSTT owners to give theirs up in favor of the JB+.

Chime in fellas!!!

This kind of statement is pre-mature at this time.

My completely stock car with just an SSTT dynoed 324whp.

IMO if the JB+ does not make more than 340whp it's probably not worth the upgrade for people who already have the SSTT but it is a good alternate for new customers who want similar gains.

+1. I just bought my car too and was going to buy the SSTT the day they first announced the JB+. I decided I would hold off and wait for the JB+ too.
