2018 Type R Install Question
 
I just ordered the JB4 for my 2018 Civic Type R and I am new to the tuner.

I have a couple questions.

1. How do you instal the clean way through under/behind the brake pedal?
2. Once you instal the JB4 do you first have to update the firmware with the typeR file, select a Map then is it good to go?
3. This may be a dumb question, but once you upload the map do you have to keep the app running? or is it just for the purposes of data logging?
4. What maps are currently available for the type r?

Thank you so much for any help and/or advice!

1) We're past due on making a video for that, but we'll be sure to get to it soon.
2) It should have typeR firmware preloaded, and is preset to map1, so you just install and go.
3) The app only has to be on if you want to communicate with the JB4 to change maps, log, etc..
4) For now we suggest typeR log/use map1 and post a log so we can evaluate your octane. The typeRs are tuned more aggressively from the factory so we'd prefer you guys turn it up slowly. :)

Welcome to the community! You're going to have lots of fun! :burnrubber:

Type_R_2018 03-12-2019 01:51 PM

Awesome! I will make sure to log it and upload the first few runs once I install it.

Thanks so much for the help and quick response!

After how long do you recommend waiting until I can safely going up to Map 2?

Terry @ BMS 03-12-2019 03:57 PM

Until we check out the logs and give the thumbs up. :)

I am having trouble uploading the screen shots of my logs from Map 1.
Can I email them to you?

I am loving map 1 so far, I can't wait to try map 2! :burnrubber:

Terry @ BMS 03-17-2019 12:44 PM

You just attach the CSV to the post. You can email them to yourself and post from a computer if it's easier for you. :)

here you go! I did some good pulls with this log and it was allot of fun. The torque increase is really noticeable.

I hope everything is running good so I can run map 2

Thanks so much for helping, you guys are awesome!!

Terry @ BMS 03-17-2019 05:57 PM

This is a PDF... Logs are CSV (data) files. Attach the CSV file to the post. You can email it to yourself if needed to upload from a computer.

Sorry about that, Hopefully this one work! :)

Terry @ BMS 03-17-2019 09:26 PM

No full throttle to look at in this log but the log itself opens at least. :)

Looks good to me!

Type_R_2018 03-18-2019 08:57 AM

yea? Im safe to go up to map 2? :D

Terry @ BMS 03-18-2019 10:20 AM

What fuel are you using?

Type_R_2018 03-18-2019 10:53 AM

I always run 91, sometimes 94 but never nothing less than 91 octane.

Also whats the power & torque increase from map 1 to map 2?

Number of Maps for Civic Type R
 
Hey just wondering if there is only the 2 maps available for the typeR or is there a map 3?

I am currently running map 2 and love it! I'm just curious if there is an option for map 3?

:burnrubber:

Terry @ BMS 04-16-2019 06:25 PM

For now we only want you using map1 or map2. ;)

haha okay thanks! Also what are the specs for power increase for map 2?

Terry @ BMS 04-17-2019 08:20 AM

If you post the map2 log we can check out fuel pressure, that was the limiting factor in our testing. Power increase depends on octane! The typeR picks up around 30hp on map1 and 40hp on map2 if octane is there.

JB4 gains and Map options
 
Hello, I own a civic Type R FK8 with Performance Exhaust and cold Intake, Fuel 93 to 95 Octane, these gives around +30HP and Torque, with JB4 what could be the gains for torque and HP? in Map 2 of course :)

is there also any option to setup some pops and bangs?

Kind Regards
Alfonso

Terry @ BMS 04-30-2019 09:59 AM

The exhaust burbles requires fuel injection timing changes so we can't do those with the JB4 safely. But power gains are going to be on par with the flash maps. It really depends on the octane. The higher the octane the more power you can safely make.

Here is a log of Map 2. Please check it out and see if I am safe to try Map 3 and if map 3 is required to run with 94 octane. also the specs for map 3.

Thanks!!
