Im having the same ON and OFF Problem randomly but have no temp issues. it never goes above 240-250 degrees. any ideas why this may be happening? no codes by the way.

Maybe your gas cap is loose? Really, I have no idea. If you need support capture it on a CSV log and email it in.

This sounds like the same situation I'm in, possible that you are running lean. I'm also troubleshooting an intermittent fuel mix code getting thrown at idle to low rpm, so your situation could be different. Like Terry said, need to log it.

What was the option to have jb4 active when water temp gets to 160 or did you take it away? It sucks having to wait all that time for the oil to heat up.

*****nevermind found it in the release notes********

Have you uninstalled it correctly under the Add/Remove Programs in control panel? If not, try that first. Otherwise you will have to do a manual uninstall, have a look here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1...k-once-clients

If you don't understand the instructions, be really careful or you might mess up your computer completely!

It might also be possible to run the original installer again (thoe one you installed from the beginning) and uninstall from there.

That was an old JB3 feature. It was removed in favor of static throttle mapping but more variable lagfix.

Working on making more but keep in mind they only benefit you if running > 18psi. Otherwise there is no reason to use it over the proven G4 15 ohm.

We know that T. I'm extremely happy with my G4 15 ohm and 5/23 FW. We just like to throw our money your way cause it makes us feel good and hope it does the same to you.

And we're happy to take it but a lot of guys asking for the G5s really have no idea what they are getting in too. This stuff is for experienced users only who want to run a lot of boost and know the consequences.

I'm still trying to figure out if it is worth me getting them if I plan to run e85, meth cm7 and cm10, push the stock turbos all the way (gonna have new ones soon) and some nitrous.

With nitrous you'll need it just for the nitrous trigger, and depending on the shot the on demand CPS.

Consequences.......The only consequence I can think of is that the stock turbo's hopefully give way and then it's onto bigger and better things such as RB's. Right or Wrong?

At higher power levels anything from a blown turbo to a cracked piston to everything in between! But as long as you keep a fair amount of taper in the boost curve along with a meth failsafe then something like a +60 additive on map 3 meth+race gas is fairly safe for an aggressive setup. The people who break things normally try to hold too much boost to redline, don't use enough octane to support it, etc.

Sorry getting a little OT. I agree Terry. I was just taking the piss (joking). Map 3 does have a nice safe taper IMO. I'm on board when it comes to logging and making sure everything looks healthy. If I'm not sure I just email csv's to you. Also in the process of switching all meth fittings to compression so I'll feel better about a 80/20 mix (done the trunk conversion too). Got me a local E85 gas station as well.
