First i hear of it, but from what i just read it seems that the only 2 features that it has can be achieved by the JB4 for way cheaper

There is no launch control on JB and there is no flat foos shifting on JB. Maybe I am wrong?

I don't believe JB4 has launch control or no lift shifts. Mine shows up in a few days. I'd love to see reviews on the WOT box though.

This is popular with the VW 1.8t and 2.0t crowd. I knew a few guys who blew the rods out of the bottom using this but the VW engines are not forged like the N54.

I saw on the other forum that few 335i's have installed them. Just wondering why it is not popular between us comparing with other cars. I was waiting for launch control and FFS features from COBB as they promised long time ago, but apparently those were just promises.
On this site http://www.npcompleteperformance.com/wotbox there is mentioned that our cars is supported.

i have it on my GTI and have had it since it came out many yrs ago.
I know many i n other forums who also use it.
No issues and great product.

Flat foot shifting and launch control is what it is known for.
I've got big turbo swap and stock internals and the cars still running strong.
Been running like this for about 6 yrs(?) no problems.

It was simple to install
Just have to splice a few wires. I assume they have instructions for each specific car model.

I don't see how just having this is bad for the turbos. Its not like i use LC or flat foot gear shift all the time.

Its great. RPMs stay up between shifts and turbo spooled almost immediately.
