Sounds pretty boring, I started dozing off just reading about it

what about adding to the wheel command menu the adaptation reset items:
Throttle
Lambda
AFR
Battery
Knock
Octane
VANOS
VVT
6AT
ECU Reset

Basically the same as procede....

This is important when changing maps or tune etc...

Most of the adaption resets are already in there, just not documented. It's one option that goes and resets everything. We'll document it in the next release. But resetting adaptions is not very important when changing maps or tunes.

Terry, I still haven't seen any conclusion to the launch control for automatics and xi's that don't have to worry about traction. I hate having to brake boost because I know it's not the best thing for the car so having a launch control of some kind would definitely be a lot better. Sorry I know the questions been asked a lot but I'm just looking for a solid answer. Thanks!

The launch control is the same thing as brake boosting. Only instead of only building say 4psi before pushing through the brakes we let it get up to around 6-10psi. If you have an objection to holding the brake and gas down at the same time, for whatever reason, launch control will also not be for you.

Do you think that it's harmful on our cars if we do it once in a while? I had a 97 540i back when I got my license. It was like 4 years old and I brake boosted once so hard that the radiator pipe broke off and it was a huge problem. Ever since then I've learned from my mistake.. lol

No issues with brake boosting. I've been doing it for years with the N54.

Normally at the track you get more than enough cool down between runs.

Making significant interface changes to allow for some advance features. Hope to have those done early next week. Then a few days for alpha testers, and if all is good we'll throw it up late next week. No promises though.

Do all the JB4 features work with an old 2006 Progman version?

I finally found time to put in my JB4 w/ hidden USB wire in the glove box....Just in case the dealer needs to get in there. What a change! It's like driving a different car. Install took a bit longer but had no issues what-so-ever. If someone needs a hand with install around Beantown arean let me know. I'm willing to help.

Terry, So when are you running for President?

Hi Terry,
wondering if you could make an option such that the flap would be manual open/close where we could force it open or closed all the time and/or have an RPM or throttle position trigger to open the valve.
So settings would be: stock, always closed, always open and throttle or rpm triggered.
Is that possible? I'm sure a few of us would be interested

Also, wondering if as part of the gauge hijacking, you could display the water temps in lieu of the oil temp until the water temp reaches a set threshold.

That would be awesome, and it would free up one of my gauges for meth in future

I thought that the valve stayed closed during initial load (acceleration) and then when a certain rpm was reached that it opened automatically???

It's function is load-based, not RPM it seems, and we have no control over it *yet*.

We could do more with it. But why would you want an option to force it closed during WOT?
