Anyone else have any issues with the Jb4 gauges not giving a read out on anything except BOOST and MAP. It is pretty random but sometimes it will only read the 2 gauges but all the others seem inactive with no read out. No WATER, RPM, OIL, et.

If the CANbus channels are dropping out, the OBDII cable may be loose, or damaged. We can replace it for you if damaged!

Although the cans aren't pour friendly... Dunno what the manufacturers deal is with that. I have to keep a lil funnel and pour spout bottle handy.
Reading the back of the can on Amazon I noticed it states 32 oz (entire bottle) for +4 octane on a 20 gallon tank. Are you filling part of the 20 gallon tank with E85 or something?

Thanks for the tip!

I have AWD model, so my light comes on when i need 15 gallons. The math worked out close to +3 points for half can to 15 gallons of 91. After a couple tanks mixed... the residual in there is blended still, Maybe +2.66 points, round up... i dunno.

If a blank empty 20 gal fill of 91, then yes you need 24 or 32 oz to get +3 or +4 points.

So is Torco the same as Race Gas Concentrate? I read somewhere that it gives your spark plugs an orange color and you have to change your plugs more often? With my JB1 on map3 I have DWP at 10 and boost safety at +5.3 on 93 octane Amoco Ultimate from a BP station. I bought the JB1 the first week it was released and have driven more than 15,000 miles with it starting at +3 and gradually adding more boost.

All MMT based additives will give you orange looking plugs and tailpipes over time. But, does a good job of boosting octane!

New user, had Stage 1 for about 2 weeks now but don't drive our 2018 Q60 RS very often. Wife had my car yesterday so took out her RS to pick up some K&N drop ins when this Lambo pulled up with his obnoxious exhaust, ripping from red light to red light. I figured what the hell...

Q60 1, Lambo 0

Don't know how to dumb down photo size's or would post piks. Stock except for drop ins, stage 1 and royal purple octane boost

Help needed here... my flex pipe broke on my Y-Pipe (Megan Racing) so instead of getting a new pipe i was going to get a flex pipe and weld it on, my question is the mesh part where it flex, should i get a longer mesh flex or shorter? Cause there are different sizes.

The whole mesh part came off... then eventually over time and abuse it just snapped and my d0wnpip3 was pretty much holding a piece of it

I think your only other option is the tanabe....or you can contact Megan Racing and inform them of the defect and see if they are interested in giving you a deal on a replacement. Do you have any improvement ideas based off of the failure?

I went to a muffler shop and replaced the flex pipe on both sides. I do not recommend Megan racing Y-Pipe for this car for anyone who has thought about getting it. As the old one was not double braided. My replacement i got from a mechanic that he installed was double braided. Costed me $200 to replace both

I've been considering lower down@#$%s. Might bite the bullet on megan racing since its only $149. Im currently on stock exhaust w/ JB4 map6. I just have a few noob questions..

Will L*** give me even more boost with JB4?
Will it give more boost sooner, as in lower rpms?
Will they negatively affect my AFRs since its now more free flowing?

Terry or anyone's input is appreciated

Might cause some boost spikes between shifts but you would need to watch it. I am probably going to do the same but with full exhaust.

HI Terry - are you guys still working on that pedal box for this application? I've been looking into it for another car and I think it might really help with awd launches for cars that don't have a throttle override/highjack.
