haha dang thats sad that everyone guessed it was moritz. I think after my experience with them this time I will not go back there for any other service issue.

Where is a decent good dealership that I can take the car too? in the area that is.

on a side note, i finally after arguing and what not got them to cover everything. Only thing they are not covering is the vanity mirror, so im on the hunt for a new driver side vanity mirror or complete beige visor

....p.s. i know you guys will hate me but will the jb4 void any warranties or such if i take it off before going to stealership (planning on ordering it today)

I went from a JB3/4 to an AccessPort.
1) you don't have to get into the ECU box. Just plug it in to the OBDII port and flash! For dealer visits, simply reflash to stock.
2) the power is around the same if not more than the JB. see dyno here
3) AP is a much safer tune in my opinion. Do a search for "timing control" and you can spend days reading about it...
4) feel free to ask any of the other cobb users (guys, chime in anytime) and they'll likely tell you the same. Cobb is a well respected name that's been tuning cars for a long time.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Lol don't get the jb4. If you searched you can find many articles why we say that. No offense, but it seems like you are pretty new. Cobb AP would install w/ out any real technical skills at all, and is by far the easiest to uninstall. Yes, the power is lower right now because it's only in Stage 1..but you are stock, so the numbers will be similar regardless.

I do miss the power of my procede right now, but the cobb ease of use makes it worth it IMO.

Edit: I can from a PROcede to Cobb AP. PROcede is faster b/c of my mods ATM, but Cobb is more future proof.

My stage 1 maps made more power than my JB3 on map 5 or the JB4 on map 1. Stage 2 comes out in a few weeks so we'll both have more power

You know how I feel about the Cobb dyno

My PROcede was/is no doubt faster than my Cobb though...

We dyno'ed the same. But it comes down to a matter of preference to me. Sure Cobb is easier, others are cheaper, some make more power, just gotta research and know what you want. If I had the money I would buy every single one.

Yep, out of the box, the PROcede takes better advantage of mods and *can* be more aggressive with timing advance while actively correcting for knock, unlike the JB3.

The Cobb AP Stage 1 tune seems to be more aggressive on boost than the PROcede, but the timing table needs a bit of refinement. The nice thing about the AP flash is that it allows the DME to work as intended, with torque targets.

This summer, I expect us AP users will find that boost levels will increase with the warmer weather, even if ambient temps are too high to see any more than +3 degrees of ignition advance. To the seat of the pants, the car should feel about the same either way.

I thought I got a good deal on Sunday when I found this in Frisco. It might still be valid and is $0.20 across the board cheaper than any other station in the area.

well you guys are totally right I am definitely new to the tuner scene and wanna know what I am doing and getting myself into.

I guess the ease of use is good about the COBB, I guess Ill have to order me a cobb. Question though, is the cobb limited to one car or can you run it in multiple cars because my sister is getting a 335 soon also and wouldnt mind tuning hers a bit too lol

Im gonna make a separate post with all the mods im thinking and what not...everyone chime in and tell me what you think

Cobb is married to 1 car at a time. If you wanted to sell, or let her try it, you would be able to uninstall it from yours, and install it on hers, but only 1 at a time.

We can help you with your mods, but you can find out a lot just by searching and reading up on the turbo forums. We all probably have our own opinions on what brand to choose. I'd suggest a FMIC first though, as it's starting to get hot here in TX and you will be heatsoaked after 1 run.

It's not hard to replace it, I think Autozone would even help you, but the problem is that after you replace it you need to "reset" the car to let it know that you replaced the battery. You can either pay the dealer money to reset it (price varies from .5-1 hr labor) or you can buy a BT tool to reset it. I would say that you would probably be better off buying a BT tool to reset it, since the BT tool is good to have anyways.
