Any word from Cobb on their N55 AP tune?

I\'m super happy with the JB4 but wish it gave me access to logging more data.

Gave in

I waited for about 4 months. Finally I couldn't take it anymore. I broke down and got a jb4. It is noticeably faster.

I figured ill enjoy it until the reviews are in for the Cobb. The see if the upgrade is worth it.

This is what I'm thinking too. I waited a month after getting the car for them... that was back in October. Oh well.

I still have yet to get the JB4 up on a dyno... I can't get real logs from it driving on the road. WOT in 4th ends up being a bit fast for a public highway towards redline. I'm running map 5 (auto tune?) right now and it's been doing well.

Gonna try to squeeze a bit more juice out of it.

What are your mods? I am completely stock. Terry told me just to leave it on map 1.

Do you notice a difference between map 1 and 5?

Just do a CSV log and email it to BMS and they can help you check it over. Logging is as good as anything else out there. Only parts missing are advance on 2-6, you only get advance on cyl1 with the JB4, but it's good enough.

I talked to Cobb about a month ago and they said they would start working on the N55 after they release the Pro Tuner for the N54.

They have a N55 335i test car since june, IMO they are already working on something.

Considering there's about to be an influx of new 335i's in a couple of months because of the F30, I hope it's soon.

I agree too, they ARE probably working on something. But as far as the release date, it will definitely be after they release the N54 Pro Tuner...at least that's what they told me.

Last time I spoke with Cobb directly they said they are a long ways away due to the complexity of the n55...

Hmm I'll call them monday and see if I can confirm anything. Another forum member told me about the before summer date. He'd been in contact with them directly himself supposedly.

I can imagine that a fair number of people would hold off on PPK, JB and Dinan, if - at the bare minimum - Cobb would post update on progress (I know I would).

Anything?!

Cobb will be worth the wait, no doubt about it.

yeah they sucks on this, they dont create any momentum, no news. I dont ask for the exact date and technical news but could they at less tell us vague news "we are working on it hard and full time, bla bla bla".

I give them the winter, if no news in april I will move on with JB4.
