Just wondering if you got my email response back to your request for more 3rd gear and a little 4th gear logging - timmixture@btinternet.com

Only reason I ask is my response to you seems to have changed your email ID to George \@ BMS which seems weird.

Many thanks
Tim

You can load it. Its ready to use and will be the new Stable. All shipped unit have that already now for the past two months.

Hi all,

Does anyone have this JB4 running on an OPF-equipped Macan 2.0T (245PS)?

Just wondering how it's been performing for you if you have.

I am not sure about OPF Macan but we have a lot of A4's with OPF and there is no compatibility issue so the same will apply for the Macan which has the identical motor.

Thank you George :)

This page says that the "Future Use D Value" needs to be set to 1 before the JB4 is installed. Is that still the case?

The shipping went quickly now. Arrived at the JB4 shop in Germany today and immediately sent to me with DHL. She is there on Thursday or Friday. I'm really excited. Now I just wait for Fuel Wire + Plug D and the installation can start

Hello George,

I have responded with my latest logs for 'additive mode' (low boost values).

Many thanks
Tim

Is it possible to to install one of the IS38 hybrid kits out there (Littco, EQT, etc) with just a JB4 or is a flash tune necessary? I’m not looking for a big power increase over the stock turbo, just a bit of a bump.

A flash tune is needed. Fueling gets maxed out with a normal IS38.

Hi George

JB4 with Bluetooth 3.7 arrived today. Does the Bluetooth adapter no longer need power?

The new versions have a integrated power wire so no extra steps needed.

Hey George,

Is there a forum thread somewhere (I assume it's not on this forum) where I can read about other EA888 Gen3 245PS users' experiences with the JB4? I couldn't really find one one specifically for the 245PS (OPF) engine on audiworld.com.

blackout1231 10-06-2020 06:37 AM

Does anyone know what the error code "3B54" is by any chance?

I've recently been getting an EPC light when accelerating (mainly in sport mode), and when the light comes on I lose power.

Hi was wondering if I can get some advice for Map 6 settings based on this log and mods.

Installed Baun FMIC and went out for some logs. Good temps - 64F, 40% humidity. Map 2, 93 Octane

Other mods - Drop in AFe, 034 Hose, Leyo TIP

IAT's were superb and consistent. Wondering what I should try next with Map6? Feel like there's probably a lot of headroom here.

Most of the user base has moved to Facebook pages from forums. Try search the VAG - JB4 community page and I am sure there are users there that can give you feedback.

It translate to Oil pressure switch malfunction. Not sure if you getting the oil light as well on the dash?

In this log it looks like you can add more from 4500 and higher.

Try the set the boost safety value to 5.0 for Map1 / George told me, I installed the JB4 in my Gti PP 245ps mj 2020 today. On Monday I have to pick up the D plug extension and afr cable set from the post office. Then I'll test it out too

Nice one pal will try that! I assume the d extension is so u don't have to get under car each time u wanna disconnect it? Whats the air cable set tho? N where did u get them in case I wanna order? 😀
