Great news [MENTION=482]kiacruzer[/MENTION] is currently working with Burger Motorsports to develop another tuning option for the Stinger.

For years I have been part of this community and one of the biggest issues has been that the bigger companies never support our cars, well times are changing. I?m working with Burger Motorsports to bring to the Stinger has has been available for many other brands. We are working towards development of a JB4 unit. If you are familiar with BMW/AUDI/ Infiniti you may know what this means. If not, the JB4 unit is similar to the chips we have had before in that it is a signal modifier. What differs here is that is it so much more. It can tie into a lot of the sensors in the engine to offer further tuning and customization. It can even tie into your WMI system and adjust tune if not enough meth is flowing. It also brings into reality the possibility of tuning for ethanol fuel blends. There is still a lot to be done but it?s a start and it?s a lot further than other companies have gone into the Korean vehicles

How were JB tunes installed on Bimmers? Any splicing needed?

ETA I would say might be pretty soon. They are pretty interested in getting into the market soon and being a big player.

Definitely in for the Burger Tune. I have a buddy with a Q60 red sport with the JB4. He's running +8 psi and mixing 4 gallons of E85. It took a fast car and made it a beast!

Any idea how much horsepower he was making? Even the stock Red Sport is no slouch.

For those familiar with JB and LAP3 what are the advantages/disadvantages with either?

I'm guessing spark plugs will still need to be upgraded, certain octanes will be required, and it'll be removable for times when the car will be seeing a Kia tech?

This guide will probably be closer to what we get than the BMW video. Installation seems to be very similar, the difference is Connection B which connects to the fuel rail for E85.

He said it's estimating it to have 400 whp and measured a 0-60 run in 4.38 seconds. The car is otherwise stock too.
