BEF for the N20? does that mean we need to have the ECU sent for 1st time bench opening or via OBD as it has been opened....?

Added EWG6_T4 back to the first post. Should correct that gauge sweeping issue.

Hey Terry good Evening, today I was speaking with my tuner about the EWG cable, now that we have the OBDII connection, is the EWG cable really needed? Shouldn`t EWG be controlled directly by DME through the OBDII?

Terry,

Gauge sweep works great! I had no trouble as I was driving with the gauges trying to sweep again. It seems to have fixed the issue. I also tried out the oil and transmission temperatures on the jb4 app. I had no issues there and everything seems pretty accurate. Thanks for working so hard on this!

The EWG cable is used to offset wastegate duty cycle in applications that need it. OBDII is for the CANbus connection. So they are different things.

Is there any way to turn OFF the guage sweep?

I find it a bit gimmicky as in, it sweeps after the car has started. Where as all other oem sweeps are before the engine starts.

Unless you can change it to sweep before the actual engine turns on.

That's a good question, sir. There isn't an option via CanBUS nor in the JB Mobile App. I don't think there is a way to disable, other than reuploading the EWG_5 Firmware. That's a Terry question. LOL

It would be ideal if the sweep is being done while the car is starting up just like OEM. Speedo will go to zero while techno will return to the idling rpm. The n54 jb4 sweep seems to be able to do it.

My jb4 gauge for low pressure fuel pump seems to be not working well after the update.

Anyone else’s gauge sweep gets stuck? Noticed the rev needle gets stuck at the red line and then after a few seconds it moves back. Also noticed this on the speedo needle as well. They don’t get stuck together thou.

Disabling the BC button for wheel controls disables the startup sweep. Later we'll give it a dedicated option.

The tuning is more or less unchanged. The differences are mostly with logging and features.

Hi - New JB4 owner here.
I've turned on the Fuel boost gauge. Could someone please let me know what the Boost safety settings are for map 1 and map 5 so I could interpret the readings on the fuel gauge?

Empty is no boost, and full is whatever you specify under boost safety on the user adjustment page. Default is 22psi IIRC.

Thanks Terry - Just picked up the cable for the JB4 so I’ll check what the Safety is set to. In terms of setting the Max boost per gear in the “User Settings” would this be the boost cap/limit or a subtractive value form the boost target? Thank you

Terry,

Just saw the video for the air/fuel ratio gauge hijack. Is that released yet? I haven't updated to EWG _6_T5 yet.

I purchased a JB4 recently and then found out I needed a new board so I purchased that + the OBD2 cable.

On the OBD2 cable, what does the molex connection plug into? That is the only thing I am uncertain of at the moment. Do I also have an outdated wiring harness as well or am missing another piece/cable?

New board + obd2 cabl - https://i.imgur.com/er9Ev5F.jpg

I drive a N26 EWG 2013 328i if that helps.
