If with lap3 on 93 octane setting gives you 50whp, how much whp you reckon the jb4 will give while running map 3 which is 6psi over stock using 94 octane with 3" downpipe intake plugs...

Not even close. The JB4 has no documnetable power bump over the lap3 tune. Not to mention, the "lap3" isn't a tune. It's a chip. You don't get nearly 50whp. You max out at about 30-35whp at best. Meaning 270whp. Not 315 unfortunately.

50 crank hp, not wheel hp.

I don't think anyone has tested them both to compare the results yet.

Not to mention, the "lap3" isn't a tune. It's a chip.
The proper name for the product from the manufacturer is:

"LAP3 Uncle Chip Performance Tune"

IMHO, any time a product can increase HP by changing electronic parameters, without physical parts, that can be considered a tune.

You don't get nearly 50whp. You max out at about 30-35whp at best. Meaning 270whp. Not 315 unfortunately.
Correct, it is 50hp at the crank, which many members have tested and see a consistent 40-42WHP from the 93 setting.

Just asking out of curiousity. Thought of getting it dynoed but not "that" important for me to fork over a few hundred dollars just to get those numbers.

Gotcha, so you site does quote WHP for the uncle chip I guess why there are some confusion
Thank you for the heads up on this. There was one place where we still had the "W" in front of the HP that we forgot to remove. (Fixed Now)

Our website shows the regular HP gains the engine makes, not the WHP put to the ground. (Which can change based on multiple factors like gasoline quality, ambient temperature, elevation, etc)
