The X1 is a unique setup and we ship it with X1 firmware ready to go. It's harness is also different. You should not need to do anything but if settings were purged somehow trying to get connected then you'll just need to fix those. Set TMAP = 0 though.

Thanks, that's good to know, since I had set TMAP = 1 per the instructions on page 1 for EWG vs PWG

Still running into problems with the adjusted settings. Had two instances of it resetting to Map 0.

I'm attaching three logs:

The first one stopped logging before I saw any changes. Do the logs have a size/time limit? - This one ended up being to large to attach

The second and third are instances of the map changing from 1 to 0. The funny thing I don't see how I did anything that would have caused this as I was tooling along at 25 mph through a neighborhood in both instances.

Please let me know if anything else looks out of whack in the settings.

Also, what does it mean when the two turn signals (aka hazards) flash? This happened to me a couple of times when I put my foot into it.

I don't see that it should impact anything, but one added note is that I am using the bluetooth adapter.

Let's start with the basics. I used this information from page 1 of the thread to configure my JB4 (see attachment).

Combined with setting TMAP = 0 per Terry, is this the correct configuration for the X1?

If not, can you point me to where I can get the correct information.

Tmap is value at 1, should be at 0 IIRC.

I'll double-check that.

I know I went in and set it to 0 after Terry told me that was what it should be.

Verified that N20 TMAP = 0 (could the 1 you are seeing be the TMAP Voltage?), but I did find that Auto Shift Boost Reduction was set to 0 rather than 10.

I changed that, but won't get a chance to try things until I leave work.

No worries, try that for now and report back. Make a thread in the support section so we can get back to you there.

It's only one trip, but this was the first time I completed my commute home or to work with without the map changing.

I've noticed my hazards flash when I really put my foot into it. Is this an RPM related warning, as it looks like it is happening at about 6500 RPM?

Thanks, had one good trip but then had the issue again this morning (unfortunately didn't get a log for it). So as suggested I started a thread in the support section.

Hi All - I hit the dyno in the 320i w/ Meth. Huge thank you to Ando @ Burger, he has been tremendous to work with on reviewing logs and overall support of the many questions I had.

Also, dynoing a car in Chicago is damn near impossible. Josh, ***hy, and Chris were all a pleasure to work with at P&L Motorsports (Subaru WRX shop). Very knowledgeable, and they were able to support my exact dyno plan in a quick hour over lunch. From setup to multiple runs on different JB4 maps, it was quick and efficient all from my iPad and the JB4 Connect Kit.

Car Details:
Model: 320i, RWD
Engine: N20
Intake: AFE Momentum
Turbo: OEM
Plumbing: ER Turbo to Intercooler & Chargepipe
Intercooler: VRSF Street
EDP: OEM
Exhaust: AWE w/ Mid-pipe
Tune: JB4
Meth Kit: Burger Tuning w/ CM7 Nozzle (Stealth Tank, Pump, FSB, etc...). WMI Boost Additive Setting of "55"
Methanol: Boost Juice
Fuel: 30% E85 / 70% 93 Octane

I did 3 runs of each JB4 map to make sure results were accurate and repeatable.
Map 0 - JB4 Off
Map 5 - JB4 320i Autotuning Map
Map 3 - JB4 Methanol Map

The boost levels achieved on each map were the following:
Map 0 - 8lbs
Map 5 - 16lbs
Map 3 - 22lbs

HP / TQ Numbers (Wheel) were the following:
Map 0 - 191 / 189
Map 5 - 245 / 254
Map 3 - 270 / 291

Overall I'm happy with the car. With the 320i being stripped down and RWD, when it goes into "Meth mode" you can certainly feel it. Watching the IAT decrease in temp vs. increase is great too. I hope to move to a 340i in a couple of years, but where I'm at in life, I'm certainly happy with the gains.

Happy to answer any questions for anyone considering the installation. I think I was able to complete the install quite cleanly between the trunk and engine bay.
