    I'm in this spot as well......I want MHD when available but due to the warranty side I'm going to start with the Titan piggyback, along with a downpipe. Everything is ordered just waiting on delivery.

    Once we get a little reliability data and I feel better I'll move to a full ECU tune.

    I wish you the best of luck! Hopefully no problems with piggybacks. I heard people in BMW forum saying piggybacks are more "glitchy" because all it does is trick the stock computer so the stock ecu tries to "fight" it. idk how true that is, but I hope it's not :/

    I'm on JB4 right now and no issues with it being glitchy at all. It's nice having the JB4 app so you can monitor all data from your phone and change maps on the fly. I am working with MHD Tuning for a tune that will work with the JB4. I should have some updates here soon.

    So they'll flash your ECU in combination with the JB4? What is the benefit to that, vs. just having them flash the ECU without the JB4? Forgive me if that's an ignorant question, I'm learning...

    No worries man. I'll just use the JB4 for on the fly datalogging and monitoring temps at that point. You could make further changes with the JB4 if you added meth or have other options. JB4 and MHD actually work together on tunes and it's called a back end flash.

    For me it's very convenient to be able to datalog at the push of a button and email it just as easily from my phone to have it checked. I'm working on upgrading the heat exchanger and being able to monitor temps in real time is extremely handy during these hot summer days.

    Yes the JB4 is on my Supra. Here are my numbers on the Supra at the wheel on 93 octane no meth:
    333whp 385tq bone stock
    356whp 441tq Map 1 and Intake
    391whp 468tq Map 3 and Intake
    424whp 482tq Map 3, Intake and Catless Downpipe

    Torque comes in hard at 2700 rpm.

    Will do! All I needed was an Android device and an OTG cable which Twisted Tuning sells so I bought a tablet and I've been waiting on the cable from twisted tuning for 12 days now and it still hasn't shippedo_O. They won't return emails or answer posts on here.

    :hmm: I'll be waiting for the Japanese to come out with a tune. Warranty won't be voided if it's from TRD or Gazoo. I'd like to see HKS come up with a tune too. I like to bet my money and peace of mind on the Japanese.
