Because the master cylinder of brakes is located on the right side in RHD, there is not space.
I will locate it on the left side necessarily.
The extension of EWG harness need 25 inches.

UK Dealer here....

The JB4 fits UK cars perfectly with no need to extend the EWG wires. Fitted 5+ our own car now with no problems.

Try routing the wiring differently.

Has anybody come up with a good way to route the USB cable into the cabin on a 6MT M4?

It should route the same way as the AT. Poke out the grommet on the passenger side.

I am a little confused. If your using the jb4 with only regular fuel and no mods currently. Should you only use map 1 or can you use the other maps

With 91 octane map 3 is suggested, with 93 octane map 1 is suggested.

Do 60-130 that time so you get both 100-200kmh and 60-130mph.

OBDII is required for any Stage2 operation. Maps > map 1, logging, in dash controls, etc.

Hey Terry, I have a feature request, if possible.

Is there a way to log any of the knock protocols on the S55 using the JB4? Knock Count or similar would be awesome.

Also, when the JB4 Connect Kit is connected to the JB4, is it normal to loose all CANBus control from the steering wheel (I.e. Flap Control)?

Yes that's an issue with the connect kit right now. It disables the BC button when connected. We'll work on it.

For knock you have cyl1 and cyl4 which you can use to infer timing pull. There are no "knock count" parameters. It's an adaptive timing system so will always learn up as much advance as it can up to its internal dynamic limiter.

I've noticed cyl 1 and 4 are sometimes pretty close in timing and sometimes way different. Is there a reason the other cylinders cannot be logged as well? When I pull them up in the log, they always show 0.

Also, maybe if those CANBus options can be manipulated from the JB4 app, that would be a good option instead of using the BC button. Flap control from the app would be awesome.

We can log cyl 1-6, but on the public firmware only 1 and 4 are active. The more channels logged the slower all channels go. OBDII can only spit out data so far. So we'll have to evaluate that and maybe put timing on a rolling log where 1 is always active and then it cycles through 2-6. We have a few things in the works for the S55 JB4 firmware right now.

That'd be cool! I know from past tuning experience on other platforms that there is a very limited amount of OBDII bandwidth.

Also, I'm running the newest OBDII firmware 1.53 and I'm getting weird CANBus disconnects while connected to the JB4 Connect Kit. For instance, the valves are set to open, and out of the blue they will revert back to stock operation. When I disconnect the JB4 app, the valves will open back up and everything is fine again. The app will also stop responding occasionally. A disconnect and reconnect fixes the issue.

Looking forward to what you have in store for the next firmware update. If you need some help beta testing anything, I'm all about it.

Interesting. Is it the REV2 or REV3 connect kit?

OK will keep an eye out for bugs on that front.

Which Map? Here's my run again (PBox) @ 50F and 102 ROZ ARAL 102. No Mods, car is stock.

Like your run it was on a nearly even surface.

Terry,

Does the S55's DME have the ability to pull timing retard below 0? Surely the DME can pull timing into the negative by at least -10degs. Do you know how far below 0 it can retard timing? If so, would it be possible to log below "0"?

Of course, it runs negative timing frequently. Like during shifts, DTC intervention, etc. It will drop timing 20 or 30 degrees to reduce torque on the fly. We cropped the negative timing in the JB4 interface as I don't see it useful for performance tuning. Timing is going to be positive under boost when not shifting.

Is this something you might be willing to write into a future interface version? IMHO, being able to see the complete timing picture is very important.

Thanks Terry, I really appreciate the work you guys are doing on the S55.

Sure if enough people want it we can add a toggle for it. Really useless information, though. Why do you think you need it?
