Just popped out there and did 4 logs and they were all spot on, 3rd and 4th gear and a mix of both!

One thing to note is for a day I had to run the car with an open ******** as the wrong Res delete got sent, it was during this driving the car started to feel odd, of course I'm childish and did a few pulls with it like that, could this of affected anything?

Either way it seems to be running as good as always now, hell, even pulled car lengths on an M2 last night!
Sounds like the waste gate was just adapting.

Hi george.

Two weeks ago you wrote that the new maps were going to be aviable.
I don't know why you never posted the new maps and the final firmware.
Please help.
Thanks

We have been testing the new version of software on around 30 cars and all seems to be good. Would be nice to get a bigger pool now.

Firmware version is 60/85//5

Changes are as follows:

Map 3 Peak boost 6psi
Map 4 Peak boost 6psi 7speed DSG specific, it has a taper at higher rpm so will also work well for guys on 93 in hot climates
Map 5 Absolute map peaking 25 tapers to 20psi. E30 with bolt ons needed
Map 8 Safety Valet map

Other improvements are on idle and boost onset.
OBD disconnected yield 0 boost add.

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks as always, George. Map 5 safe for 100 octane (with intake and **), or is E30 needed?

Most 7 Speed cars have got a issue when using launch control. Specifically the R and S3. If you not having issues no need to use it.

It should be ok, read your logs though to be sure.

Thanks for that info. Does this mean also that T5 firmware in case of issues fail safe will not switch to map 8 but it will switch to old map 4 ?

I will today flash my JB4 with new fw...

Thanks for reply.
I have another questions.
Is stacking JB4 over flash tune still same on latest firmware as has been before? So we use settings from image from 2. post in this thread, select map6 and JB4 will not do anything? Or is selecting map0 better option to avoid any issue for tunner(car will get custom map)?

Thanks again for your time and help.

Same applies for stacking but past few version map 0 is the pass through map with logging ability if you want to log the car with the flash only or stock it the ECU hasn't been flashed.

Hi George,

I’m still using Map 1 and the firmware from 11 December 2018 on my car. Still no hardware done and no issues using LC on DSG7 either up here at the Reef, or at the coast for that matter. I know that you told me that Map 2 is possible without hardware but only with a fuel mix - never tried Map 2 out though. What Map should I use for the most power on 95 pump fuel with this latest firmware and is it true that boost has been hiked up from +4.5 psi to +6 psi now? Do I now use Map 1, Map 2, or Map 4 after downloading this latest firmware, as per some of the previous comments?

I would start with map 1 and post a log, or send it to George. I don't think you'll be able to hold the higher boost up top with 91, especially in warmer weather.

Map 2 and up is intended for 98Ron or higher. Unfortunately the range with 95 is very limited.

Thanks George. Are you targeting more boost in Map 1 with this new firmware as well (+6psi up from +4.5psi, or is Map 1 still exactly the same as in the December update?)

Map 1 is unchanged. 4psi peak add.

Thanks George. You know what - is that DSG7 LC misfire that everyone is talking about, that crackling/popping/misfire of sorts that happens when LC is engaged and only under part throttle? Iíve always thought that it was normal and that it was some form of anti-lag? It goes away if you apply full throttle and hold it against the soft limiter for a short while before launching. Should I be concerned and do I need to get that fix you mentioned for these 7-speed cars some posts back? Use another map perhaps? Iím based up at the Reef and once the car launches, it does so cleanly and without any fuss or drama.

No, the issue is when using LC and just after the gearshift there is a pause, hesitation type and then pull the rest of the gear normal. This happens in all the gears but only when using LC as it shifts to a different map on the ECU.
