Default f25 n55 X3 - 11-20-2016, 11:21 PM

Will there ever be a JB4 that works for the x3 f25 N55? Is it just to wildly different? I am planning on adding a ** an upgraded FMIC but dont even know if it is worth it if I cant up the boost. If I go with the stage one and the data cable will i be able to add additional boost to take advantage of the other upgrades? Thanks in advance.

I actually just installed the f series JB4 on my 2011 X3 with N55. Also I've found a ******** for it but not a fmic, where did you find that.

WHAT? Berger told me the Jb4 would not work on my f25 N55? Are you 100% sure you have the JB4 on an f25 N55 and it is workign with the CAN Bus etc? Please post a link of the porduct that you purchased.


The inter-cooler dosent state F25 but we have more room and the inter-coolers are the same between the 3 series. This one looks like it will work.

The other hard part that is needs to be specialized is the charge piping

In looking through your recent posts it looks like you are running a berger tuning stage1 - not a JB4... if that is not correct please clarify and let me know if it seems to have full capabilities or if you need the Bluetooth module or something because of the CAN bus.


I am trying out a different tune that should work to help me get the boost up and give me boost control per rpm not just a blanket boost +3 for example ... The stage 1 just didn't seem like the right piggyback to center my build around. I want a lot more power as you can probably tell from the links I have dropped in.

which option did you get the one for the 1/2/3/4 series with pneumatic waste gate or the 5/6/x series with ODBII?

did you have to buy the Bluetooth module?

JB4 F series should work with the F25. I presume most are EWG.

Mine is a 2013 X3 35i N55 F25

Terry- I emailed in and received very short replies that only the stage 1 would work for me and the Jb4 would not. This is great news I will be placing an order tomorrow after I verify the waste gate - I haven't even looked. I will hopefully be returning the other piggy back before I even open it. If I buy the bluetooth module can I change maps from the phone app? or how can I flip from 0 to 5 for example?

No worries, we can work with you to get it sorted. The sales guys tend to just tell X3 people we don't offer a JB4 for it since we've not done the formal installation guides, etc.

With JB4 mobile you change maps with your phone.

Terry-
Thanks for the clarification one more quick point of clarification - I was told the CAN system wont work for this car. In the instructions it states that it will stay at map 1 if no ODBII CANbus. With the bluetooth app will I still be able to change maps and get the benefits of the autotune for example with map5?


7) OBDII CANbus -- Required for in dash map switching via BC button, CANflap, datalogging, and all other in dash features. If you fail to install this connector the JB4 will act as if its on map1 (default map) regardless of what map is selected.

Does the F25 X3 not still use the N55 from the E-series?

Hi Terry,

I read the forums and read the JB4 is indeed compatible for a 2011 X3 35i (N55) has harness B and Pneumatic wastegate.

I ordered this with the rev 3. Bluetooth to switch maps but my order was canceled.
