It's pretty easy to install the Ventura box too, maybe 15 minutes the first time, and 5 minutes after that. Changing maps is done by removing 4 screws on the bottom and adjusting a dial inside. It...

Are you talking about the BMS intake? I run in Sport or Sport+ most of the time, but for smaller trips to the mall or whatever when I want it to use electricity as well, I just leave it in comfort.

The lower part of the filter box probably shields the filter somewhat from engine heat, so I don't think it's necessarily a good idea to remove it.

According to Ventura during a discussion I had with them, it is running maximum +0,35bar compared to stock. This is on the default map (map 5). I'm not sure what the stock pressure is.
