Thumbs up My JB3 review.

What can I say that hasn't already been said (at least on other forums) about this fantastic tune? The power delivery is frankly INSANE, the turbo spool screams as if you stepped on your pet cat's tail, the fact you can putz around town feeling as though you have a stock car in your hands is grand, the OEM tires wish they could handle the new found power, the look of fear from other sports car owners when passing them on the highway is simply priceless and last but not least, the ability to install/unistall in a matter of minutes (for me anyway) via the plug-n-play is impeccable.

I plan to dyno this bad boy shortly but in the meantime, I guess I'll actually try and get some office work done.

BTW, mods are JB3, Meisterschaft cat delete pipe, Meisterschaft muffler and BMS dual cone filters.

Does JB3 void the warranty?

This should be undetectable to a dealer when removed. Can someone confirm?

I want one!

Can you please comment on throttle response and turbo lag with your setup? I'm very curious if you think the DP's have helped there...

The JB3 helped reduce the lag to where I don't even notice it now. So, yes, it did help in that department.

^ True, but just curious. I guess I could be more clear with my question. How's fuel economy when driving at constant highway speeds under 80mph? SSTT, for example, does not reduce stock fuel economy unless the car is pushed or at WOT.
