JB4 or CXRacing FMIC?

Currently I've got the JB+ (which I love), the Active Autowerke Signature exhaust, and an Injen CAI.

I've been planning on doing the intercooler next but now I'm considering the JB4 instead. I could sell the JB+ for ~$150 and get the JB4 for pretty cheap.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

i would get the intercooler since you already have a JB+. intercooler will help unleash more from your JB+ and also increase the efficiency of your turbo.

Just my 2 cents

If you want more power you can feel right away then JB4. It will also provide super easy HP once you get downpipes and DCI.

When summer rolls around you are going to be feeling a bit of power loss from the tune due to the charge temperatures. I'd say be kind to your engine and go with the FMIC first, then jump on the JB4 tune.

Good point, but hopefully by summer I'll have an intercooler as well.
