You are sort of locked down with a cobb tune, which is why I like my JB4. But some people like flash tunes for whatever reason, I dont know.


    Welcome to the forum, no one is going to flame you here. No one is going to moan at you to use the search function every post you make.
    Can't you use the Cobb flashloader thing to revert to stock?

    There we go.

    BTW, did you stickers ever come in?

    Question,


    as far as next upgrade goes after the Jb4... what would you suggest? Down Pipes? FMIC? Charge Pipe?

    A lot of people here would suggest a Meth kit for the next upgrade.
    But actually all you name are good as well. My preference is a FMIC, but that depends on the climat you're in. DPs will help you gain an extra 30 HP as well.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    Sweet, the whole point of DPs is to go catless correct? I was looking at meth kits too, but I am not sure that I am ready for that yet ahaaha. I also was looking at the HPF intercooler looks pretty good for the price.

    Most indeed go for catless when changing the DPs. But then you would need to uninstall them when going back to the dealer for service. Just like with the piggyback.
    HPF makes a pretty nice FMIC, but there are more choices which all cost about the same. CP-e has one with a secundary oil cooler (usefull if you already have a primary, for it is installed in front of that one on the same oil line), AMS also makes for a very nice choice.
    And if you order from BMS, it is a one stop deal for they have AMS in their webstore.

    I saw the cp-e pretty good deal with that oil cooler.. I think I will go with that when the time comes.

    If your not in a rush, search for used parts. There are tons of people that lease these cars and install full bolt on's only to part out later. I bought my AMS intercooler and AR 3 inch dp's used. I was in no rush, and it took about 2 months of searching the "for sale" forums, got both of them for less than half the price of new. Both looked brand new! I ended up getting a good deal on a Helix intercooler and actually sold the AMS IC before I installed it. I decided to buy my exhaust new because it was real hard to find one used that i liked/sounded good.

    I would go with a IC first. The dp's add power but they also make the car sound more aggressive than stock. So it depends on what your looking for. If your still under warranty it would be annoying to take the dp's off and on for service as others have said.

    Make sure you look at how much cutting is required for your IC choice, just incase you wanted to sell the car later.

    Thanks for the words of wisdom, I am in no rush and will be scouring the for sale ads for sure. I think new tires are what I really need, here is a photo of my baby as it sits now (not much done)

    Downpipes, my opinion.

    It just sits in D with no indicator light on the Sport side. Is there a way to fix the wires or is it a dealer job?

    Sounds like this needs to see the dealer.
