I had an N54 135 stock with Procede V4. The N54 is definitely faster but the N55 Cobb is more responsive on low rpm.

N55 Cobb compared to N55 stock is very noticeable. I didn't play with it much though today, I live in Seattle and it's been raining like crazy!

The upgrade was smooth. Make sure to hook the AP to your PC and update it before connecting it to the car. The installation was very easy.

I called Cobb last week and told them that my car was delivered by the end of Dec 2011 and it's a 2012. Then I told them I would like to give it a try since there is a 30 days return policy. They said that's fine.

I got the AP today and hooked it to my pc to update the firmware then connected it to my car. And it worked! my ECU was supported, I have it on Stg1 aggressive.
Reaaaally.... That makes me want to try it when I have the funds. My car was build in January and delivered in Feb.

There is no guarantee that it'd work(they haven't added 2013 or full 2012 support yet) and since your car is Gulf Spec'd which I assume means a different coding region, you would need to send that in to cobb to crack anyway. It wont be PnP.

Talking just installed cobb

I just installed cobb. the install took about 15 minutes. you simply plug de obd port, and follow the instructions. you start seeing a bunch of symbols on the dash and after a little sweat on this 85 degress puerto Rico weather your done. i put the stage 1 agressive, despite having only 91 oct fuel (shell) and went for a drive. I was not sure if i needed to put the transmission on drive or sport or manual so i choose sport mode. you could definitely feel the added torque, my wheels went spining at the begining. i think is a nice upgrade from stocck. i only have berk race exhause as mod. i need to play with the device a little bit more, and i know i have to be careful cause i have only 91 octanes. tomorrow ill go for a longer drive, so lets see how it goes.

With Stage 1 sport are there any recommended mods? Same with the aggressive map?

Or is the aggresive just for the people who use 93oct+

My 2012 has a build date of May 2011. I wonder if I should give it a try and see what happens. It will check the computer to verify it's the proper version before trying to write changes, correct?

If I have a JB4 Stage 1 installed do I need to remove it prior?

there are people who run them together, if I remember correctly you need to flash via Cobb first.
http://www.burgertuning.com/cobb.html
"Upon receipt of the Cobb AP unit load the included "Stage0" map and then email us your DME version so we can email you the proper BMS JB4 flash file for your vehicle." - BurgerTuning

Contact them to double check that you can do this with the N55 motor first though!

Thanks Venom. Can you think of a purpose for running both at the same time?
