Default No boost after JB4 install - 12-19-2021, 02:14 PM

Hello, recently installed a JB4 on my N54 E90 335i xDrive. loved it on my N55 135. Did a WOT pull shortly after installing and got a CEL... no big deal, the ECU needs time to adjust, right? I drove ~25 miles and have had the same issue anytime I go WOT. Even under partial throttle, there doesn't seem to be any boost building. I had no issues prior to the JB4 install. I upgraded to the latest firmware and logged 2 runs -- CSV files are attached in the .zip. The first was map0 for a baseline, seems like no boost at all, second was map1 - no boost either. is it possible I disconnected something during install? I do not have the cowl reattached yet.

edit: only the 2nd log on map1 seemed to record the entire run

Make sure all connections are secured.

Aws stated, double check connections. You are right, you have no boost and WGDC is maxed out. Maybe a couple came loose on CP or damaged CP?

Just unplugged and reconnected everything. I’ll try to log a few runs tomorrow
I do have the NLS relay kit wired to the serial port but not powered. I also noticed a black wire with a flat-bladed pin attached, does this need to be connected somewhere? https://imgur.com/a/eDTH9mW?

Ya, I did… sounds like that extra connection wasn’t OEM. I can reach out to the previous owner and see what he used it for… any ideas?

Looks like it might be for the anti-lag? I have the chip but not installed

That's always the fun part of buying used...previous owner modifications, settings, etc. and trying to get it back to its original state.

so I can't figure out why there would be an additional tap for this cable in the grey connector. pin #5, I believe. I'll just insert the tip back into the connector on the other side (it has an opening on pin 5) and re-install tonight.
