Yes or swapping them. On the 4bangers the plugs are easy to reach.

I never heard of spark plug blowout prior to today and not I'm not so confident I should be tinkering with a brand new car but I'm sure I still will. Just don't want to F it up just to gain a few HP.
Only two of the plugs are a pain to reach. But use the flex joints on your ratchet so that you don't have to take the intake manifold off. Even then they are still a chore, but nothing as complicated as a full upper intake manifold removal.

^ or just pay $100-$130 and get a guaranteed professional to do it...like I did.

You paid this much so far...why cheap out now? Unless you love doing this stuff of course.

Terry, can you check these out please. I increased the settings to 4.3 for Map 6 boost at 1500, 2000, and 2500 RPM.

First is a 0-60 run
Second is just short drive from a stop.

Thx!

Hello, new member here and new owner of JB4. Can you kindly look at my map 1 readings and see if they're fine.

Dumb question, but how do you know if you've installed the fuel wires correctly? Can you see it in the readings? I installed the plug and play cables and did a bit of hack and slash job on the wires to add quick disconnects.

Thanks

Hello

I did the firmware update to the v11 and my user adjustment values are weird.
I have never set a map6 but all is filled with values,
and my boost safety is set to 28.9 (was 21).
N20 TMAP is also set to 1 and I have no clue about what it is.
WMI settings also changed a bit.
I am very worried.
Did I do something wrong?
(I updated from v9 to v11 skipping v10)

Thanks

All normal. After loading v11 you'll need to recale your map6 and boost safety values back. TMAP will remain at 1 (you can't change it to 0).

Then you'll have to redo all your settings again for the scaling change.

Log looks OK. You can check the fuel wire performance via the fuel trims. If they are dropping as fuel enrichment goes up, and relatively close together, your fuel wires are working properly.

Finally got the cable and upgraded to v11. In reference to Atr1's experience upgrading, is there anything else I need to do after the upgrade? I am only using Map 1.

Also, I want to confirm it has seemed to smooth out the idle. I did notice when revving the engine up it occasionally has a pop when I lift off the gas. I haven't gapped the stock plugs yet because I don't know the torque needed when putting them back in. So that leaves me with 3 questions. Do you think the pop is coming from the plugs not being gapped properly? Does anyone know what torque is needed on a 1.6L Turbo? Finally, I wanted to leave the data cable plugged into the JB4 and run the cable through the fire wall into the cabin of the car but the case is not capable of closing due to a piece of metal in the top half of the housing hitting the connector of the data cable. Is the case not designed to keep the data cable plugged in?

You remove the shell on the data cable to mount it in the box, see video:

Shoot, I forgot that was in the video. I watched it before I got the cable and should have watched it again I guess. Thanks.

It's normal as not all parameters are connected to the Q50

It's not a BMS product. Check with Pure Turbos for their Stinger offerings.

Good to know Terry. In the WRX world the Accessport did something similar. That turbo 4 would lag down low then all of a sudden give 100% turbo mid turn when merging into traffic from a stop. The Accessport changed the turbo delivery to make it more predictable/linear. I'm still in the break in period so have taken it easy so far with the G70. Only 100 more miles before I can really start playing around.

Good Evening Terry,

Thank you for developing such a wonderful tool.

I have attached my logs of my most recent run and was curious to your opinion.

I have the BMS intake and JB4 running on Map2. Ambient temperature was 82F and humidity was about 95%.

My best 0-60 times are about 4.7 Seconds.
