Default JB4 for Honda Turbo 1.5L Applications - 06-15-2018, 08:56 AM

http://www.burgertuning.com/HONDA_TURBO_JB4_BETA.html

Ando picked up a 2017 Civic as a commuter and it turns out the JB4 works nicely for adding power. Still early days for development (CANbus not active yet) but fun little platform with a lot more potential! We'll post firmware updates and additional details to this thread as we have them. The JB4 BETA units include the OBDII cable for CANbus and a JB4 control board so we hope to enable CANbus with a future free software update.

Very impressed by this 1.5l engine. This 10th generation civic drives pretty good for what it is.
217 wheel hp now makes it even better

Nice to see you guys expanding the market and reaching other platforms! It's tough competition though with hondata and ktuner ruling this section and offering flexfuel, and other crazy features for pretty cheap.

*cough cough* offer something for the cla 45 amg

Yes tons of flash tuning out for them. But not everyone wants to instantly void their warranty/lease agreement by flashing the car. And the JB4 has resale value. It's a good option for someone looking for a quick install/remove type product that adds a decent amount of power and can be resold down the road when wanted.

It's a CVT (continuously variable transmission) so I don't think the torque reading is accurate. We just left it on there so you can see a relative difference vs. stock.

Itís also very weak. Youíre gonna hit its limits much sooner than you would with the manual or a real automatic.

Its true.
I don't think I'm the Mike you've been following. I never had a Duramax. Are you thinking of Mike Litsch from DiabloSport?

After using a JB4 for Audi EA888 Gen 3 with great results for several months in my car, this has been a very welcome addition to my wife's Honda.

I've been running the JB4 for the Honda 1.5L Turbo in my wife's Civic Touring CVT for a week now and am really impressed with the results. The CVT has always been and still will be the weak point of this car, but with the JB4 the acceleration is noticeably quicker and I find the drive much more enjoyable now.

Looking forward to the full CANbus support!

Agreed! It makes a huge difference in tq and peak power to be honest.
