That would be good for our ceporros friends.

For when expected?

Question about the boost on fuel.
What's the scale? was confused because my when my vent gauge is showing 2-3psi vacuum, the boost on fuel gauge is @ about 1/8 tank.
Tried recalibrating the vent gauge and also resetting the stock gauges.

Sorry if this was addressed elsewhere and I missed it. =/

We are starting in Europe to get (Hosed) SuperE10(10%ethanol)/SuperE5(5%) gas in all gas stations here and they are planning to phase out SuperPlus for this garbage. Speaking with people at the dealers they are saying that BMW states all new cars can use the E10 but some do say that performance and mileage will be affected. How can I offset that or make the gas more "modfriendly" since I can't think of another word and would the JB4 compensate based on what it might see from the ECU?

Sorry for the long question.

Nick
Great question. Do you happen to know when premium plus will be phased out completely here??

I will load 020111 firmware today and try to get some logs in to you with Map 5 enabled.

Sounds great Terry. Realistically, when will this become a reality?

Btw, just loaded new fw and am going to test her out...

I have to say something about the JB interface software. I have done a lot of tuning with Ford and GM vehicles, primarily Mustang Cobras, and this is the best logging and fine tuning interface I have ever played with. It is simple, it works, and does not take minutes to stop a log and start another one. If anyone has ever used Livelink from SCT Tuning, you know what I am talking about. This all just works and does what it is supposed to do. Thanks, I love it!

Awesome. Would this auto tuning also envelop any range of bolt ons (not meth)? Meaning, would Map 1 vs Map 2 effectively become extinct because the new methodology will simply allow it to completely adapt?

Ran my USB through the firewall last night. I went over the top and just took everything out of the ECU compartment but I did learn a lot about taking plastic and hardware off the car.

Yes. But we will always leave map 1 and map 2 there for those that just want a fixed boost level. It's worked well for this many years. No reason to drop it now. Sometimes the autotuning can be overly conservative, etc.

I didn't remove anything from my ecu box when I ran my USB. I used to doing stereo hookups, so I guess I just have a 6th sense for it. I popped the rear most panel out and lifted it up out of the way so that I could see the hole/grommet at the bottom of the DME box, fished a 1/8th inch cord of steel wire through it, and attached the USB to the end of it, and presto. Took about 5 minutes including dropping the panel under the glove box once I had the top off of the DME box.

If i press the volume up or down, or the talk button, this will disable the boost limit?
Will boost limit be desabled until restarting the car? Or how does this work.
If i first start the car and press the volume button up or down does this mean it is disabled?
Bump.... Anyone play with this or use?

To disable it you just press and hold the down volume button, or talk button. Say if you want to burn out. It is only disabled while you are holding it.

Gotten a lot of map 5 customer logs. Thanks guys! Made a few tweaks based on them and put it in 2/2.

1) Made the CAN bogfix a little more aggressive.
2) Adjusted the map 5 algorithms to be more conservative in some areas and more aggressive in others.

I only test my car on safe private roads like airport runways. But the other day I was doing such testing at 120mph and my radar went off like crazy. I figured someone must have wandered on to the runway accidentally and wanted to pull me over to ask for directions. Anyway he never caught up.

Any issue with running the current (2/2) map 5 with meth? I realize you dont get the progressive boost increase with meth flow from the JB4, but will this screw with the auto tuning? Will you get any useful data from logs run this way (I'll happily make some if it's of value)?

We'll just see it work its way up to 16psi and max out. So not a lot of benefit there.

Is there a post somewhere that explains how you would like the logs done? DSC completely off, one pull per csv, etc.?

I saw in an early post that only progressive meth is supported now. Im guessing that if you use a basic kit it would be as if you were using 100 octane and make its own adjustments. What map would be best for a basic kit?

Doesn't really matter. DSC off if safe, 40-120mph pulls, and then 2000-7000rpm in 3rd is always good. Just keep it safe and legal. All in one CSV is easiest for me.

I will play with it a bit but as for now 10 limit in first and none in 2nd is working great on map 1.
Did some runs today in 50 degree weather and think am moving 1st max to 12 for some testing. Wheelspin in 1st at 11 max kicks in around 5K and is just barely breaking loose, not spinning but at the edge of traction. Gonna see if 12 is still getting traction but pushing little more. My guess is as temps warm 12 max in 1st will be perfect for me!

Thanks!
