They are working on it though, so we will just have to be patient. They also seem to have a good respect for Terry and his piggy back, and even said that their tunes will compliment the JB4... so I order the stage 1 (get it tomorrow and will roll with that until the Cobb tune is out. I personally trust these guys and appreciate the fact that they are not just throwing out a tune without a great amount of testing while still being reasonably priced. Luckily, I live in Austin (Cobb's R&D HQ), so I will be attended their first thursday meetups each month to learn more and check out some of the awesome rides that show up.
I'm actually in Austin right now. I live in Houston though. I emailed Cobb also last week and they just told me to check back in about 2-3 months but it is on their roadmap. I think I'll go ahead and order JB too.
