Why Does JB have so Many More Maps than Procede

I have process rev3 and their meth kit and its been half a year easy of talk about chaning the map structure on the process but to no avail. Map 3 is pointless and stupid since it doesn't even work properly and now with e85 becoming used more often the map combinations need to change. Just an example of very realistic combinations
1. 93/91 only
2. 93/91 mixed with e85
3. 93/91 with meth
4. 93/91 mixed with e85 and meth.

So it isn't only about the firmware but not acknowledging the fact that the process needs more map options is annoying. I just don't understand, is the profit margin that much higher on the single turbo that no time is spent on us lowly twins anymore? And don't make me start thread hunting for the amount of times shiv said a big update was coming to the stock crowd which seems to be something said pretty often.

Is there a limitation to the hardware and the inability to expand the number of maps?

Because the procede can only support 2 tuned maps

Having the flex fuel sensor helps, because it auto tunes for octane. Even with 50/50, your ethanol content may vary, and you might be getting too much or too little fuel as a result.

That said, I agree with the general assertion you make that Vishnu seems to be totally focused on the singles these days. Why are the FF maps still in Beta 9 months after they were released? Most of us either can't or won't spend the $$ on a turbo kit right now. Does that mean we are not entitled to further updates and support?
