BMS tunes are very safe and unbelievably reliable in the N54's.
I run a JB4 and not a single issue. If money permits I strongly recommend the JB4 over their smaller mod you are looking at. I understand $ can be an issue tho. Look on the forums, you can probably get a JB4 cheaper than what it is brand new!

Get a JB4. The JB2 is outdated as hell(you can't even buy one new from BMS AFAIK.) As far as safety goes: all currently available big name tunes are very safe and very reliable, including the juice boxes.

i would pass on the pin out. its pain to install/uninstall and jb/proceed prices have come down so much that it doesnt make sense to buy. if you're set on a piggyback u can probably find a used jb4/proceed for dirt cheap.
