Default Is there a preferred MAP when running a c@tle$$ DP on Macan? - 10-21-2020, 10:22 AM

Hi All,

Using the latest firmware, is there a better map if I wanted to install a c@tle$$ DP to my EA888 Macan? When reading up, it appears as though the JB4 alone can't eliminate CELs associated with oxygen sensors; what successes has anyone had w running an O2 extension/ MIL eliminator? In my previous experience, they dont work well but Ive never attempted on this platform.
The goal is obviously running the c@tle$$ DP for more power/ less restriction while not setting a CEL which would cause the car to run richer and lessen power, defeating the purpose. I'm a novice at this so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

The maps are more based on octane than on hardware so let me know what octane fuel you use and I can give you your options. The ECU and JB4 will compensate for the flow of the exhaust changes.

Map 2 for high torque and map 3 for more linear power delivery. Map 3 peaks with a bit more power higher up than map 3. Worth testing them both and seeing which you prefer.

Will do. I know you mentioned it reacts and adjusts fueling but I should def. expect a CEL if I install the c@tle$$ right? Just sounds like it wont effect performance as I had thought
