Since I only ordered the JDB, and not the BT Scan, does that it mean it only has one tune ?

which one ?

The BT is suggested for all beta testers to read/clear any hidden codes. Although so far in testing the default setting of 60% has not triggered any.

Default JBD beta test - 07-17-2010, 07:09 AM

I have a 335D that has been to the dealer 3 times for problems with the emissions system. The "service engine soon" light keeps coming back on. Recently the car was in for 2 weeks. Should this impact my decision to join the test group?

Doesn't matter but do grab the BT if you're having codes, etc, stock.

Default quick question about beta - 07-17-2010, 01:09 PM

Hello,

I hate to ask a dumb question but, will there be an update available for those who participate in the beta once the beta is finished and the JB Diesel Module is finalized?

Thanks.

I have a JBD on the way and also have an appointment next week for the software update.

I haven't thrown any codes and the car is running perfectly, so I wondering if I should leave it alone and skip the update? I don't think it's a mandatory recall.

What would you guys do?

Installed mine today. Ran it for 10-15 miles at default and then went 100%. No codes, better throttle response and even more torque. The funny thing is the mileage seems to have improved. I was down to about 25 MPG and now it's close to 30. And how is this for service...ordered on Sat and received it today.From CA. to MI.

I also had the 'service engine soon' light come on once..but it went away. Either way its only a minor emissions issue I believe(variable intake plenum adjustment/operation - ECU map recall notice)..so I'll wait till my next major service if it re-appears.

The motor does have a tendency to throw SES lights often untuned. That is where the BT comes in. You can check to see if its related, etc, before going in.

Hey Terry..is the improved fuel mileage folks are reporting seem reasonable/accurate. I thought I read something in one of your threads relating to increased fuel rail pressure which in turn gives optimistic computer MPG readings? If the increased mpg is reasonably accurate..what program logic is generating the improved MPG? thx..

It's sort of a mixed bag. We do provide some very mild MPG gains at low throttle but under heavy throttle the ECU will reflect an inaccurate/optimistic MPG. It comes down to how you drive and how much is at low throttle vs. heavy throttle. At the end of the day we're not advertising it as a MPG booster. As everyone knows with a diesel it takes more fuel to make more power.

Hey guys,

Going to make a revision to the install guide tomorrow with regard to placement. Two beta testers have reported mild deforming of the plastic enclosure in our original location so we're going to suggest the JBD be mounted on the cold side of the engine bay opposite the turbos. See attached photos. You can secure the JBD there with a tie-wrap or zip tie, or just shove it in a corner if you prefer. This goes for X5D and 335D. And of course should your box deform from following our original (poor) instructions we're happy to send a new one.

I think if it touches any sort of metal in there it will deform.

And no way someone's mpg went from 25 to 30.

According to the comp, what used to be 29.8 is down to 28.6
Haven't done the math on paper yet so if the engine cant calculate with a few WOT..

I was also bit concern about JBD getting little too hot but didn't deformed yet. But wondering if the chip and electronic components inside the JBD is rated for underhood temperatures and affects performance characteristics of the tune or not.

I hate the fact that with X5D, the intake plenum is running over top of the turbos and getting extremly hot and afraid of deformed first before JBD does

You're right. I'm sure with some more miles it will adjust closer to reality.
