Default Using the JB4 N54 for logging & gauges only - 03-11-2015, 08:13 PM

NOTE Starting with JB4 N54 v32.2 firmware there is now a built in gauges only option under option 4/4 in dash. See JB4 firmware notes for additional details and directions.

Much appreciated

Does this effect fuel or timing? Or is it strictly maps 3+ jb4 boost targets?

Would I have to uninstall my flash for maps 3+ to avoid adding fuel or timing twice?

Correct. And with a single turbo you'll get the WG spring boost. With OEM style turbos you'll get zero boost.

There are too many variables to give a good answer. Assuming you zero out the JB4 AFR column you'll get the JB4 boost target on top of whatever timing and fuel ratios are mapped out in your flash for that boost target. Unless, the JB4 boost target exceeds your flash boost target, in which case the flash targets will clamp.

It can turn on the methanol pump and datalog methanol flow but can't do any tuning with that data.

Right now port injection isn't connected to the jb4.

For my setup: FBO E60 Meth, if I wanted to run a Wedge flash but keep the JB4 controlling Meth flow I would want to use option A and either map 1 or 2. I used to stack Wedge/JB4 but Ken always complained that the JB4 was interfering. With this option A he won't have these same tuning problems? I know the JB4 still controls boost but it's different now..

Option B if you plan to tune duty cycle, etc, via the flash side of things.

Option B is cool, flash in map 0, do any wgdc logging you need in map 0 and then switch to map 1 for gauges etc in dash...

Or once you have your boost control mapped out well through the flash side of things, move to option A and you can take advantage of the 1st & 2nd gear boost control through the JB4 because 19psi in 2nd gear is not fun on street tires.... Well, I take that back, it's fun.... not safe LOL.

Thanks for the new firmware Terry, loving it so far!

Is there any way to log load, load requested / other WGDC tuning parameters with the JB4? If that were possible many more people would keep the JB4 who use flash tuning I'd imagine.
