Once you engage third gear (aprox. 2000 rpm) you have to push the gas (before the click) and let it rev to redline.

Thanks Terry.

May i know the benefits of getting the harness for a 320?

Understood that you mentioned 320 guys must get this but can you further explain what kind of benefit that we will have after installing the harness? Eg. More boost? More HP? Are we able to use other maps other than 5? Etc.....

Please advise.

Matt

If you do not have EWG control then there is no mechanism for the JB4 to "correct" the duty cycle part of the equation and thus you'd need more throttle closure to maintain torque. With EWG control we can better split it between the two. Too much throttle closure or too much duty cycle reduction both have draw backs. It's best to use a balanced approach as the OEM tuning does.
Great explanation! Got your point but someone posted a log of an N55 with EWG control in which throttle closure was significantly present. Many others reported the same since then.

Is it an issue yet to be addressed or it just can't be prevented without an actual flash?

Btw, do you know of anyone who is trying to crack the DME (N20)?

Thanks

Congrats! Isn't it possible to use it with a different harness?
Maybe Terry can supply one to you.

Also, updated the pneumatic wastegate firmware. The only real change is the addition of map 3 and methanol support. The EWG firmware posted also has methanol support but keep in mind for the EWG firmware the FSB blue wire must be installed on spot #9 of the USB, as the EWG harness itself connects to spot #16 on the DB25.
What will map 3 do on the pneumatic wastegate?

It will run the BMS meth injection kit.

I have a 320i with just the Stage 1. I want to use the +4 PSI boost map. I plugged in the USB cable and ran the software, it connected fine. Is it as simple as changing "Boost Over Stock" from 3 to 4 then hitting save? Or do I need to switch from map 1 to map 6 then change the boost?

Thanks!

Yes it's as simple as the setting change. There is only map 1 and 0 for stage1.

OK, thanks Terry. Map 6 is an option, and it lets me select it. I wasn't going to try it without knowing what it was though.

Terry,

I know you advise against it, but I've recently tried map 1 on my 320 (EGW (no EGW harness), Stage 2 , EWG firmware, FF Wires, 99RON fuel) as curiosity got the better of me.

It certainly feels like it's giving more boost at low RPM compared to map 5 - the car definitely feels like it's giving more torque and so feels quicker in day-to-day driving. Top end feels similar to map 5.

I've notice no ill effects - the engine 'seems' to run very sweetly on this setting.

Is there a reason why I can't keep with it?

Quoting first page:
Those with a 320/520 may only use map 5. Maps 1, 2, & 7 may cause the motor to run lean, knock, and other unpleasantness. Due to the lower factory boost targets in the 320/520 they also require both the FlexFuel connector ($25) for proper fueling.

Post a few logs so we can see if the car is reaching the target and how the AFR is like.

Hey Terry, My car is a 2013 BMW 328i and I have bought BMS N20 JB4 Stage2, now I'm using the 4th version firmware with normal gas,
if I wanna upgrade my firmware is it right to download your N20_JB4_FSERIES_6_2.hex in the first post? Or should I download other version? Thank you so much

That is the latest version for non-EWG cars (e.g. blue patch connected).

My 2013 328i has EWG and i leave all settings in default (including the FF Wastegate on 80).
Why you do this? Terry says the version is for non-EWG F30,why you still try this version with your EWG 328?

You could also run ewg firmware on ewg equipped car without the ewg harness

We have a handful of them out there for those running methanol and willing to risk higher than map 2 boost levels.
