I tried both, stuck with the JB3... Customer service, honesty, and maturity won me over the competition...

Customer service? So far have heard nothing but glowing reports.

Honesty? Other than the huge prevarication he was caught in and hopes everyone forgets about, I'm sure he's an honest guy.

Maturity? Life is evolution and anything is possible - even I'm still working on it.

I was just trying to help you figure out what the JB3 problem was in your other thread, no reason to bite my head off! Anyway this forum is full of positive PROCede and JB3 reviews. There are also plenty of negative reviews of both. I have no issue with either as the more reviews the better for everybody.

This thread is not about tuners, it's about the tune itself!

OK mom. I wasn't the one who started talking about Terry's integrity. I just provided a fair and balanced view.

No need to respond, dude. You can drop it now.

My bad, then i made a lot more power on the JB3... I think it was like 368whp vs. 415whp with the same mods and fuel...

Again people, this isnt about which tune you think was better...

I am trying both right now and there will be a long detaield review forthcoming. It wont be a simple, so and so is better than such and such.

It will be based on numbers, feel and many different paramaters, from someone who sees a tune as something more than just OMG go fast.

This non-scientific poll, shows the followoing so far-
Those who have tried both, overwhelmingly thing one is better than the other... It doesnt matter which one... This all but proves there is a marked differecne...

Does this mean that one is actually superior? Or does it mean one is more suited for a certain type of driver or driving style?

Still, the majority have not tried both, and I think the N54 community as a whole, would benefit from what knwledge there is to be had here.

I think I have found the major difference in the two tunes.. From a driver's stand point. Im sure I am not the first, but again, there is a detailed review forthcoming. No doubt I will piss off the owners of whatever tune ends up on the bottom of the review. So be it, I am more concerned with an informed N54 community, than I am some fanboy's feelings.

Competetion is good for the community, and the tuners. As long as it is fair competition.

Are you testing the tunes on your car?

Yes I am....

the JB3 in 1.3 trim, and the Procede in its latest full release...

Also the JB3 in 1.4 beta, and the Procede in its current beta release.

I will even have a fuel mileage comparison for those who use their car for road trips as well.

Oh boy! I can see where this is headed. Regardless will be quite informative to read your opinions of both tunes (and the aftermath "discussions").
