Here's a picture of the JB4 EWG harness right next to the EWG connector. The camera was next to the shock tower pointed down and towards the front of the car.

As you can see, it's really tight in there, so getting the plug right is a pain. Car has to be cold to work in there.

By the way, this is an MT M235i; it's even tighter AT cars (less access from above).

I'm very happy with my M235i. With the JB4, it's all gravy. Terry is, as always, the man.

Hey Terry.

How was your performance @No fly zone 4 with electronic wastegate?
Did you only tested it at Jasons 435i or also on some N20 engines?

Is there a way to test it at my car or to order the wiring harness?

Im not really lucky with my performance at higher speed levels at the moment.

So is there really any point in installing the flex fuel wires and running E85 on map 7? I am late to the party.

The electronic wastegate N55 does not appear to be E85 friendly. We're still evaluating that though.

Electronic wastegate cars should not run higher than map 2 on the current firmware. E85 use is questionable. As more people log the cars we'll have more data to draw conclusions from.

Got it! I'll refrain from installing the FlexFuel wires for now and stay my a** on map 2 until further notice. Thank you.

We're OK on that front for now. Lot's of data to pour over to continue to refine the control, but not as much spare time as I'd like to do it. We're training a new BMS employee currently which should take a little load off Jon's & my shoulders to free up more development time.

What about the EWG N20? Does it like E85?
Do you have many 320s out testing the wg control?

The 320i EWG loves E85. But is limited to around 275whp due to fueling and other considerations.

The 328i EWG does not like E85 at all unfortunately.

Where is the connector going to go on F30 N55? You mentioned it was a pita to access. Want to prepare myself for this install.

Terry, can you tell us more about these limitations?
Did you have the chance to test the ewg control with er *********?


Thanks

The DME logic and fuel systems with the newer models are not supporting E85 like the previous ones used too. Almost all of the 2012 and older models support E85 mixtures. Only some of the 2013 models do. And almost none of the 2014 models do. Down the road perhaps some break through will be made but at the moment it's looking like race gas or meth kits going forward.

Reasonably well. A few blown N20 motors due to weaker rods when getting over 23psi. But that is more about the power levels.
