Map5 vs Map7 Jb4 Review

I have been playing around with map 5 and 7 with JB4. Map 5 for the first few days has pretty low boost levels (13 psi) while I think its learning and figuring out the octane and mods and after a few days of running hard through 3rd and 4th gear, map 5 finally starts to hit 16 psi with 93 octane and one can of octane booster (toco) and I am very pleased so far. I find map 5 after a few days to be much better than map 2.

Map 7 with 103 octane 50/50 mix with 93 octane is about 17 psi. The car feels quicker and you get pushed back in to your seat. I have been thinking if I should/could run 93 octane with 1 can of torco on map 7 but I dont want to risk it until I do some more research. I am planning to run 100% octane 103 and see how much boost I can squeeze out of the car, I will post my experience once I buy 15 gallons of the rocket fuel.

I will be adding a meth kit soon to compare it vs 103 octane as well. I got tired of waiting for Cobb and I am glad I pulled the trigger on Jb4, I will buy Cobb when it comes out but for now I am happy puppy.
