What a GREAT idea, just interface it to my Zumo GPS and let the little Aussie
girl tell me the boost numbers in her lovely accent. ))

Terry,

Are the other future use spots being used? Would there be a way to move future use D=10 (Idrive off) to one of the other spots? I was trying to keep Future Use D at #2 for the external AFR. Thanks.

Nick

Same problem here with XP. I installed the USB drivers and still get "unknown device". I uninstalled and reinstalled the JB4 software USB drivers, restarted etc. and still nothing.

Is there anything else I can try?

With new firmware car has become more sluggish down low, i dont know if this has to do with throttle oscillation, it didnt do well with my car autotuned at 11 psi.
Running map 1 now, feels way smoother and more powerfull low to midrange.

Is there anyway to hijack that BIG red alarm light under the rearview mirror to light up when the vc2 system X detects that it is running low on fuel? Without the cmgs controller, it's hard to tell seeing as how the VC2 is mounted in the trunk. Can the JB4 work that?

I like it too now, but I have noticed when it's engaged, it just sits at 0 boost on fuel, but I know it's working because it worked on a previous run. Anyone else getting this glitch?

Default Stealth Mode - 06-28-2011, 01:38 AM

Hi Terry,

I agree that 50% throttle for stealth mode is to sensitive. I trigger it on every rev-matched downshift, so I eventually turned it off. Is there a way to make this threshold one of the user defines using the labtop interface?

Thanks,
Michael

How about hijacking the adaptive cruise bars to do our bidding? I don't even have adaptive cruise, so not sure if it's even possible to illuminate those lights.

Hey! Terry

Regarding max cooling when ON is there a way to make it kick in only when the car starts moving that way the car doesn't sound like a jet aircraft that's about to take-off when you're waiting in the car with the engine idling?

I would say in some instances you would want it on when the car is stationary!

The stock cooling can figure that out..just an idea,maybe another cooling mode between stock and max cooling.

Any way to force engine into limp-mode without triggering a code?
This could be alternative way of engaging fuel-saver mode.

The idea is that in limp-mode the wastegates are fully open, and thus probably allow the engine to cruise more efficiently. The downside being that you have little to no power.

Typically you'd expect better gas mileage with wastegates fully closed as it allows some of the lost heat energy to be recycled. In practice, I doubt it matters much either way. But we'll look in to it. Most of the MPG gains we've found come from leveraging the DI system with leaner than normal air/fuel ratios during low throttle cruising.

Agreed. Ideally, leaning out the AF would be best, it would be interesting to view the instantaneous MPG using various techniques.

Lean-out AF, open wastegates, alter valve timing... of course there is only so much one can do with a piggyback, and considering the price of the JB4, it does far more than any flash I know of.
