Sure this could have been a seat time thing, but considering I've owned 30 cars before this one, I feel as if the PBX does what it does well.

Sure a tune is going to be all around better, but not everyone wants to drop the extra money when they are not going to run their cars hard all the time. All I am claiming is that the PBX remaps the throttle, so if that is what someone wants, I believe this is the cheapest method we have available right?
If you want it to be a better DD, why wouldn't you want tune that gives you more low-end torque negating you having to floor it all the way and wasting more fuel? That's why the PBX is a waste of money.
