Yes, a 335 w JB4 is no snail on the road. Just a little $500 box and it hangs with M3s!

What I really like about my set-up is that the RB turbos extend max HP right up to 6,800 rpms. So when you...

You can run e30 on a stock car. Try 5 gallons of e85 and top off with 93.

Not sure if that's the original map. It stays invisible on the AP handheld. When you uninstall Cobb it reverses the map load and puts the stock ECU map back. It's married to the car's VIN.

No real tuning gains for that car unless you want to invest $10k in a super charger.
