    JB+ for the N55

    I've seen news that there is a JB+ ready for the N55. The power gains appear to be very similar. What would be some good reasons to buy a JB3 over a JB+?

    Looks to be about a $100 difference in price and the JB+ is much simpler to install.

    I've been looking to step in to one of these piggy back tunes and I think I've settled on JB vs proceed, but this news has me scratching my head.

    JB+ is a very mild upgrade. It just adds a little more boost and that is basically it.

    The Jb3 offers more power potential and features.

    Can this be upgraded / downloaded to existing JB3 Stage1 units?

    Good question but do not believe so.

    We may offer a downgrade program after the JB+ is out of beta. Haven't thought about it much yet.

    How long until the JB+ is out of beta?

    What is the current N55 offering?

    On the beta we normally like to see 2 million customer driven miles. Given this is a lower volume product with the N55 being so new, we may lower that to 1 million miles. But it's going to be a few months I'm sure. Currently there are 10 out there. Hope to triple that next week. Click here to enlarge

    Also going to do some track testing with the JB+ tonight at Famoso. I would love to be able to say with the JB+ you can run 12s with your N55 for $279. We'll find out tonight if that can be a reality! Click here to enlarge

    We also offer the N55 JB3 Stage1 which is similar in terms of peak performance but includes lagfix for improved low end response. But install takes longer and it costs a little more.
