F13 640i Boosted-JB3 ecu piggybag

Engine-N55 (Twin scroll Turbo)
ECU Piggybag-Juicebox3

Over the past couple of weeks, I have been contemplating over which piggybag to go with. After doing a lot of research, reading up in various forums and asking around, I decided to settle with the juicebox3.
I dropped by to the distributor today to clear my doubts and the person in charge was not just helpful but very informative to my queries. They had the jb3 installed and I was expecting decent power gains but HELL NO!, it was worlds apart, I am telling you guys, I was blown away with the way the car performed. It was a total different animal, it was MUCH MORE than what I expected. The tech guy mentioned that I should see a good 30-40hp and 40-50nm gains on the dyno but I have not finished running my car in yet, currently at around 700kms and will dyno after running in. However the pull starts from around 2200 revs all the way up. I was not even on full throttle as I am still taking it easy on the block which is why I resisted pushing it beyond 5000 revs. Between 3000-5000 revs, the before and after feeling is a big difference. The power delivery is still as smooth but at the same time feels never ending. Throttle response has also improved. How do I explain it, it's like a punch in the back when you floor it, well to 5000 revs for now.

I messaged the tech guy that this does not feel good, it feels F*****G good! No hassles in installation, took about 20-30 mins to cool down engine and about 20 mins to install it. No cutting, no welding, just plug and play!
I have seen other piggybags with wiring harnesses that go on for miles but the jb3 software is very few wires, simple, easy to install, COST effective, no error codes and feels easily more than what they claim to produce in power. Lastly the tech told me, you don't like it, we will give you back a full refund within 7 days. I LOVE IT!
I don't have anything to do with this companycwhatsoever, just want to share with you'll my experience today as I am still excited and looking forward to my next drive.

Here is the link to the JB3 site:

That tune took my x5 35i from 14sec 1/4 miles down to 13.5! Burger tuning is top notch. Congrats

Thanks! I am really enjoying the car now, feels so much more alive. 0.5 seconds is good!

does your sport mode still work? or is it sport at all times after the piggyback, I remember when I had my porsche tuned it felt like sport mode all the time, and when I would hit the sport I wouldnt feel anything extra...
