Did you enter the appropriate COM in the interface?

(stolen from another site)

First thing you are going to want to do is set the 'COM PORT' to the correct setting, so the JB3 interface can connect to the USB/Jb3.
So go to the tab on the top named 'Settings'.
Here is two ways to find what 'COM PORT' you connected the JB3 USB to on your computer.
Once you connected the USB and your drivers are installed usually on windows the connection for the USB status will be in your toolbar.
Double click this small icon on the bottom right to open the status window.

The USB connection status window should open up with a list of USB connections.
Boxed in red in the picture above is what you should be looking for to match and input in the JB3 interface 'COM PORT'.
In the picture for example, the USB status window shows
"USB serial port (COM7)"
Take the number 7 and input it into the JB3 interface 'COM PORT' window.
To see if this is the correct 'COM PORT' number, click 'FILE' then 'CONNECT'

just need to do the logs with DSC off?
and drive 2000 rpm to 7000rpm in 3 gear?

Only that?

If the answer is yes .... for me it is much easier to do several logs. (not as dangerous)

Terry see the email please

Thank you, I actually just got it. I re-read "Read me first" I just had to change the COM port.

If anyone sees this, READ everything first, just because it says JB3 in there doesn't mean its not important.

-So, ignition is on, car is not running
-Select connect in the interface
-upload and let it do it's thing without touching anything
-wait for "flashing successful...jb4 rebooting"
-go driving!

Does map 1 or Map 2 have any autotuning in it at this time with the latest firmware?
Or only Map5 has the only autotuning in it.

I ask since the firmware just before it had PID autotuning within the maps.

Great, thanks T.
I was thinking it was an on/off switch too.

Terry, you might want to change your wording in the first post from:

"Pressing steering wheel volume or talk button in 1st or 2nd gear will disable the boost limit."

to something like:

"Pressing and holding the steering wheel volume or talk button in 1st or 2nd gear will disable the boost limit. Once you release the button it will go back it's current setting."

The way you have it now sounds like it will be completely disabled by pressing either buttons while in either gear.

100 octane RM2 and higher is considered race gas.

I'll have to check his logs, but sounds about right. Their 98-99 RON normally performs like our 93 RM2.

Hey guys, have lots of 93 octane and modified car logs on map 5. Now we need a few more 91 tune only logs! Also some logs from the other side of the world where it is currently summer time would be helpful. Looking at you AU.

Interesting read, if the below info is correct then the fuel I am putting in my car (V-Power 98) would be much better then the fuel used in the US of A

"regular" gasoline in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the US - RON 91–92.

I think they have 93 RM2 in most states which is the same as 98 RON (V-Power 98)
