By doing this you just:
A) Clouded the forum with
B) Pissed a lot of people off since we all hate seeing the overly redundant "Which (insert mod) is best" threads
C) If you actually read about the different tunes, you'd be posing a specific question. Instead you've clearly illustrated through your OP that you know absolutely nothing about ANY of the tunes & are looking for various members to provide their 2 cents to persuade you which way to go.

Here's the , short explanation of the tunes:
Flash Tunes: COBB & GIAC, best for people who like things very simple. COBB has the convenience perk since you can always add maps/update for free & it flashes right through the OBD port. Flash tunes really don't work w/ meth.
Plug-in Tunes: Best for people who want to run meth and/or people who like having more control over the various tuning parameters (if you mess around w/ these & have no true understanding of tuning, you'll prob ruin your engine).


For every1 here on this forum, please have some self respect and actually search on topics like this before you post another useless thread.

all over priced compared to similar options for other makes models out there

for example cobb for bmw=700+, cobb for subaru=500

jb4=500, similar software for a honda/acura = 300

jb4= cheapest option
procede 2.5 on sale for 500
cobb =700

Well you're comparing a box of resistors vs. a flash.

If you have already read up on the tunes then you should already know. Why bother asking a question which serves no purpose other than to stoke up the tuner war between the brands and fans?



1 - You really are that stupid

2 - You feel like you don't get enough notifications

3 - Your too scared to trust your own judgement so want members to recommend a tune for you so if it goes wrong you have somebody else to blame

Either way I don't care

Thank you very much to everyone else for getting to the real problem here and not falling into the usual argument that I belive this thread was intended to start
